For 2012, Disney Channel was #1 among Kids 2-11, toppling Nickelodeon's 17-year record in Total Day among the largest advertiser-targeted segment. Disney Channel, which accepts select sponsorships, was also the #1 TV network in Total Day among Kids 6-11 for the 2nd consecutive year, and was #1 for the 4th year among Tweens 9-14 with a dynamic lineup of hit live action and animated programs. They include the #1 TV series ("Good Luck Charlie"), the #1 animated TV series ("Phineas and Ferb") and the #1 TV movie ("Let It Shine"). In Primetime, Disney Channel was at #1 for the 12th consecutive year in Tweens 9-14 and for the 10th straight year in Kids 6-11, and placed among the Top 2 cable networks in Total Viewers for the 7th year in a row.

Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said: "This has been a remarkable year, not just because of our ratings success, but because of what that success represents:
a deep and consistent connection that kids and their families have with the various characters and stories that make up our programming portfolio."

In Total Viewers, Disney Channel paced a mere 1% shy of tying Nickelodeon as cable TV's #1 network (1.686 million vs. 1.704 million), a stark reversal to Nickelodeon's 21% advantage in 2011 (2.143 million vs. 1.764 million).

This marked the 11th consecutive year Disney Channel has delivered the #1 original movie telecast among Tweens 9-14.
"Good Luck Charlie" swept as TV's #1 series across Kids 2-11(2.7 million/6.7 rating), Kids 6-11 (2.2 million/9.2 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (2.1 million/8.6 rating). Notably, this marked Disney Channel's 7th consecutive year with the #1 cable TV series in Kids 6-11 and Tweens.
