Have you missed any of the 19 episodes of Dragon Ball Z Kai that have premiered so far on Nicktoons? Well, now is your chance to catch-up with a weekend marathon of all 19 episodes, in order!
Nickelodeon closes May as basic cable’s number-one total day network with kids 2-11, kids 6-11 and total viewers for the month, and also scored its best-ever May performance with total viewers. According to Nielsen Media Research (4/26/10-5/30/10), Nickelodeon averaged 2.1 million total viewers, a 3.3/1.2 million K2-11 and 2.7/576,000 K6-11 for the month.
Striking while the iron’s hot, Nicktoons announces a second season of the network’s hit series Iron Man: Armored Adventures to bow in 2011. The new season of 26 episodes will continue to weave in iconic Marvel characters, such as Nick Fury, Whiplash, Dr. Doom and Magneto, and will feature the epic resolution of the Makluan Ring saga. Season two will have even more of the fast-paced and action-packed episodes that helped Nicktoons reach its highest-rated and most-watched year in history with boys 6-11, kids 6-11 and total viewers in 2009.
Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids, and SCG Power Rangers LLC, an affiliate of Saban Brands, have partnered to make Nick the U.S. television platform for Power Rangers, the long-running kids’ TV phenomenon now heading into its 18th television season. The partnership marks the return of the global franchise to its original developer, Haim Saban, who developed and produced the original “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers” series in 1993.
Haim Saban’s Saban Capital Group has bought back the rights to the Power Rangers franchise from The Walt Disney Company. The 700-episode series has been sold to Viacom’s Nickelodeon and Nicktoons networks, along with a new 18th season, which begins production this summer. The new season will consist of 20 episodes and will air on Nickelodeon in 2011.
Coming off its most-watched and highest-rated first quarter ever with boys 6-11 and 9-14, Nicktoons launches the U.S. premiere of Dragon Ball Z Kai with a special premiere week of back-to-back episodes Monday, May 24, through Thursday, May 27, from 8:00 to 9:00 p.m. ET. The latest chapter in the Dragon Ball franchise, Dragon Ball Z Kai is a re-edited rendition of Goku’s efforts to save Earth from destruction with the help of his friends and the seven magic Dragon Balls. The 99-episode series will continue to roll out Monday through Thursday at 8:00 p.m. ET.
