‘Clone Wars’ gets encore on TNT

'Star Wars' cartoon will air on network Feb. 14

Having broken ratings records on Cartoon Network, animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” will receive an encore run on broader-skewing sibling channel TNT.

The George Lucas-produced series will make its TNT debut on Feb. 14 with back-to-back first-season episodes following the Turner Networks channel’s coverage of the NBA All-Star Game weekend activities. The half-hour sci-fi series will settle into its regular Wednesday 10 p.m. timeslot starting Feb. 18.

Clone Wars” ends its first season on the Cartoon Network in March. Its Oct. 3 premiere garnered nearly 4 million viewers in the biggest launch ever for the channel, and the series established itself as the top draw for its time period in both cable and broadcast for boys 6-11.

The second season will bow on Cartoon later this year or next year.

Turner officials now hope to introduce the series to “Star Wars”-generation adult males on TNT, which targets adults 18-49.
