‘Abra’ pic does trick for Nick in auds, demo

4.5 million viewers tune in for 'Abra-Catastrophe'

An animated telepic about a pair of bumbling fairies and a mishandled muffin emerged as the top-rated original movie in basic cable last week.

Nick’s “Fairly OddParents” film, “Abra-Catastrophe,” brought in 4.5 million total viewers. In its target kids 6-11 demo, 1.9 million kids tuned in to the Saturday night premiere, up 136% from the same period last year. Steady numbers were also registered the following afternoon with the rebroadcast (3 million total viewers).

“Abra-Catastrophe” outshone TNT original romance “Prince Charming,” which aired Sunday night. Pic, starring Christina Applegate, brought in 2.9 million total viewers. Numbers were down slightly from TNT’s most recent made-for last month, “Caesar,” which netted 3.36 million viewers. “Prince Charming” ratings and delivery results were off 54% from last year’s William H. Macy starrer “Door to Door.”

‘Wedding’ works for TNT

TNT, which still finished tops in primetime among adults 18-49, had better success with “The Wedding Planner.” Pic brought in 3.4 million total viewers on each of its airings over the weekend.

On Saturday night, Showtime’s marathon of fledgling series “Dead Like Me” brought in 800,000 total viewers. Numbers were nearly even with year-ago, when cabler aired a boxing match.

Roster of top 20 shows for the week was peppered with animated success: episodes of Nick series “SpongeBob SquarePants” and Cartoon Net’s “Family Guy” and “Futurama” also landed on the list. Top spots belonged to airings of TNN/Spike’s “WWE Entertainment.”
