“Adventure Time” Hit Series High Ratings on Monday, September 5

Neil Patrick Harris Leads Cartoon Network’s Hit Animated Series ADVENTURE TIME to Best Performance in its 3-Season History

Cartoon Comedy Series Ranks as TV’s #1 Program of the Day on All Television Among Key Kids Demos

Cartoon Network’s Monday Night Comedies Rise to Highest Early Evening Delivery 2011-to-date

Cartoon Network’s Monday night (Sept. 5) presentation of an all-new episode of original animated series ADVENTURE TIME (8 p.m.), currently in its third season, scored its highest delivery among all targeted kids and boys demos – ages 2-11, 6-11 and 9-14 – in the history of the series, earning double-digit growth across all audiences, according to Nielsen Media Research. The Labor Day presentation out-paced all competition to rank as the #1 program of the day on all television among kids 6-11 and 9-14, as well as boys 2-11, 6-11 and 9-14. Additionally, the strength of ADVENTURE TIME’S record-setting performance – which attracted more than 3.3 million viewers 2+ – helped propel the network’s Monday night all-comedy line-up (7-9 p.m.) to its best performance 2011-to-date among total viewers.

The special episode, entitled “Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake,” featured guest-star Neil Patrick Harris (The Smurfs, How I Met Your Mother) who loaned his formidable speaking and singing vocal talents to play Prince Gumball. Harris starred in this gender-swapping, parallel universe episode which also features the female “Fionna” and her cat “Cake.”

“Since its premiere on April 5, 2010, ADVENTURE TIME has served as an anchor to our Monday nights, quickly becoming the #1 original series on our air,” said Stuart Snyder, president and chief operating officer of Cartoon Network. “With primetime Emmy Award nominations two years in a row for ‘Outstanding Animated Program,’ the series has been both a critical and popular success. Audiences – both kids and grownups alike – have made Monday night the destination for the next generation of great Cartoon Network animated comedies.”

Highlights of ADVENTURE TIME’s episode premiere performance, compared to the same 2010 time period, include the following:

•Kids 6-11 delivery (1,429,000) increased by 25%, and ratings (5.8) by 26%
•Kids 2-11 delivery (1,844,000) increased by 28%, and ratings (4.5) by 29%
•Kids 9-14 delivery (1,316,000) increased by 73%, and ratings (5.5) by 77%
•Boys 6-11 delivery (1,063,000) increased by 23%, and ratings (8.5) by 25%
•Boys 2-11 delivery (1,283,000) increased by 23%, and ratings (6.1) by 24%
•Boy 9-14 delivery (949,000) increased by 61%, and ratings (7.7) by 64%
•Total Viewers 2+ delivery (3,315,000) increased by 42%
Propelled by ADVENTURE TIME’s episode premiere, Cartoon Network’s overall Monday early evening (7-9 p.m.) also scored its best performance of the year to date. With strong performances from additional original animated series The Amazing World of Gumball (7:30 p.m.), Regular Show (8:15 p.m.) and MAD (8:30, 8:45 p.m.), Monday night grew significantly across the board – kids 6-11 average delivery (981,000) increased by 9% and ratings (4.0) by 11%, kids 2-11 delivery (1,307,000) increased by 8% and ratings (3.2) by 10%, kids 9-14 delivery (791,000) and ratings (3.3) both increased by 27%, boys 6-11 delivery (756,000) increased by 16% and ratings (6.0) by 15%, boys 2-11 delivery (958,000) increased by 14% and ratings (4.6) by 18%, and boys 9-14 delivery (595,000) increased by 36% and ratings (4.9) by 40%.

Adventure Time introduces viewers to unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades.

Hee hee... such high ratings... surely they'll try to make another Fionna and Cake episode, if only to get such high ratings again. But they'll also have to make the episode so well that it'll beat out the original episode in quality so that it doesn't seem as if the only reason there was a second "Adventure Time with Fionna and Cake" was because they simply wanted more high ratings.

The Fionna & Cake episode was EPIC. I'm really not surprised it broke ratings records. XD
I know the anticipation had really gotten crazy the last few weeks, although Cartoon Network hadn't really built up a lot of hype (which I'm glad for. Usually when a network or studio builds up hype, it's because whatever they made completely sucks and they're desperate for ratings. but CN didn't need to do that, the fans got excited pretty much all by ourselves. :lmao:)

I had missed Adventure Time the last couple weeks 'cause I've been incredibly busy, but I refused to miss that one. :3

I really hope they do another Fionna & Cake episode... or something. I just wanna see more. :excited:

Although, the ending was really disappointing. sorry!

They should make another Fionna and Cake episode. WHERE MARSHAL LEE GET'S TO DO STUFF AND SPEAK.
And then at the end, it turns out that it's the Ice King again, but this time he wrote a whole play for the theatre~! :iconfabulousplz:

Haha, I don't fit their demographic at all- I'm a nearly 17-yr-old girl XD And my brother, who introduced me to the series, is 23. I guess AT humor works on a lot of levels =]

This episode was fantastic for relieving back-to-school stress, too. Perfect ten-minute escapism. (Esp with NPH!)

They should definitely make a series or more episodes for this. :nod: It's very popular now. I saw this episode and absolutely loved it and enjoyed it. I can't get enough of Fionna and Cake. The episode was so awesome, so amazing, and so cute. :la: Please Cartoon Network. :please: Make more. :meow:

I love Adventure Time already, but the Fiona and Cake episode kicked ass C: I wonder if since it was such a hit if they'd make more episodes with them. But probably not, since it was supposed to be a "special event". Ya never know though ;P

i dont think they'll make their own "series" per se since finn and jake are already there. at best they'll make another fionna and cake episode, which would probably be in season 4.
