Don't let the 11 million fool you too much, they're just being kind to Michael Eisner and listing the cumulative numbers for the week. If NICK did that with SpongeBob and iCarly airings the numbers would be massive and 11 million would look like a teeny, tiny, little bitty speck. Still, the co-viewing information (parents watching with kids) info is very interesting to see.
