'Switched at Birth' ASL episode draws big ratings

Viewers didn’t adjust their TV sets when they discovered that Switched at Birth was being performed entirely in American Sign Language last night. Instead, they turned out in droves — making the ABC Family show the night’s biggest scripted cable telecast among women aged 12 through 34. Switched also scored a few timeslot victories, earning a .8 rating among adults 18-34 that made it the night’s most-watched scripted cable program at 8 p.m.

Sounds like a victory to us.

'iCarly' series finale draws strong 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!
