ESPN comfortably led in primetime with both adults 18-49 and total viewers for the week ending December 25, 2011.  But for only the third time in Disney Channel's history, it edged past Nickelodeon for total day viewing. The second time that happened was fairly recent -- the week ending November 20, 2011. The first time it happened was the week of August 13, 2007 when High School Musical 2 debuted.
