Nickelodeon’s Nov. 8 premiere of its first iCarly original movie broke ratings record for the kids-targeted network.
The movie, iGo To Japan drew 7.6 million viewers, a network record for a live-action television movie for Nickelodeon. The movie, which followed the exploits of iCarly (Miranda Cosgrove) and her friends as they travel oversees to attend a Web-based awards show, also broke ratings records among kids 2-11 (4.3 million) and K2-11 (3.6 million).
Following iGo To Japan, Nickelodeon’s original series debut of True Jackson, VP drew an additional 4.8 million viewers. The series stars Keke Palmer as an enterprising 15-year old that gets tapped to head the youth division of Mad Style, a major fashion label.
iGo To Japan was the most watched entertainment show for the week of Nov. 3 to Nov. 9, but it finished a distant 15th as cable network news coverage of the Nov. 4 presidential election dominated the weekly ratings race.
