Adult Swim also guided Cartoon Network to its highest ranking to date (#5) for total day delivery of adults 18-13 among ad-supported cable. The Sunday telecast of Futurama (11 p.m.) scored its highest delivery and rating yet on Cartoon Network with adults 18-34, adults 18-24 and men 18-24. Among adults 18-34, the 1.0 rating was up 233% vs. last year, and delivery (626,000) increased by 208%. Adults 18-24 scored a 1.4 rating (up 180%) and delivered 385,000 viewers (up 221%). Men 18-24 garnered a 1.9 rating (up 171%) and 257,000 viewers (up 213%).
All Futurama needed was ads and the ratings explode.
Those are very high ratings for a show at 11pm.
If only Fox would ever learn. http://www.turnerinfo.com/newsitem.aspx?P=CARTOON&CID01=5514040d-14ad-4b00-9670-082641eb48f8
