'iCarly' series finale ratings
In its 2009 heyday, Nickelodeon’s iCarly was drawing massive ratings that would have delighted any network — let alone a basic cable channel. (The two-part special “iQuit iCarly” drew nearly 10 million viewers when it first aired, making it one of 2009’s top 30 cable telecasts.)
And while the series’s finale last Friday didn’t exactly break any records, its numbers are very solid: Nick reports that the hour-long episode drew 6.4 million viewers and strong demo numbers, making it November’s top telecast among kids and tweens. All in all, Nickelodeon ended the month as basic cable’s top network with kids 2-11, as well as total viewers. Spaghetti tacos for all!
