Cartoon Network is an American cable television channel owned by Warner Bros. Entertainment, a division of AT&T's WarnerMedia. The channel was founded by Betty Cohen and launched on October 1, 1992, and primarily broadcasts animated television series, mostly children's programming, ranging from action to animated comedy. It operates usually from 6:00 AM to 8:00 PM (ET/PT) and is targeted at children between ages 7 and 15. Its overnight daypart block Adult Swim is aimed at young adults and is treated as a separate entity for promotional purposes and as a separate channel by Nielsen for rating purposes. A Spanish language audio track for select programs is accessible via second audio programming (SAP); some TV providers offer the Spanish feed as a separate channel by removing the main English-language audio track.
As of September 2018, Cartoon Network is available to approximately 89.212 million pay television households in the United States.
