Apparently most of you didn't listen to me when I warned you against letting your small children watch Adventure Time with Finn and Jake. According to a press release from Cartoon Network, "Adventure Time premiered last Monday night as TV's #1 show on either cable or broadcast at 8:00 p.m. among kids 6-11 and kids 2-11 (2-11!), as well as the #1 telecast of the entire night on all TV among boys 6-11, boys 2-11 (2-11!) and boys 9-14, according to preliminary data from Nielsen Media Research."
What the what? What 2 year-old is watching a cartoon about zombies, running the gauntlet, eating ice cream and getting fat and using near-swear-words? And, furthermore, 2 year-olds need to be in bed at 8:00 p.m. dreaming about candy and learning to run, not up watching cartoons with their 10 year-old syblings.
It scares me that Nielsen is tracking what 2 year-olds are doing, anyway. How 'bout you?
