For November the network averaged a 4.0/1.3 million for kids aged 2-11. This represented an increase of 18 per cent versus October's total day ratings. This was on par with November's 2004 ratings. With kids 2-5 years old Nickelodeon earned a 4.6/564,000. this was up 14 per cent over last month, and with kids aged 6-11, Nickelodeon earned a 3.7/730,000, 20 per cent over last month.

Dora the Explorer, in its one-hour special Dora's Dance to the Rescue on 11 November proved to be a hit, marking the second highest programme on all of cable with preschoolers aged 2-5 in 2005.
