Nickelodeon Kids Choice Sports Awards LOS ANGELES 2015
The Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Sports Awards are here to stay and to contuine showering today’s top athletes with trophies — and lots of slime. Now in their second year after Michael Strahan hosted the inaugural ceremony last year, Russell Wilson was at the helm for round two. This year was bigger than ever with not only just one 50k shot but rather three! With two of the contestants successfully getting the shot and winning 50k each the room was filled with excitement.
The show also posted a double-digit year over year increases with kids 2-11 and total viewers. Kids' Choice Sports 2015, which was simulcast across Nick at Nite, Nicktoons, TeenNick and TV Land, averaged 2.5M total viewers (+10%) and earned a 4.4/1.3M with Kids 2-11 (+15%) and a 5.6/1.0M with Kids 6-11 (+10%)
Stephen Curry was a big winner, but what made the crowd even more excited is that he brought Riley along with him! The adorable 2-year-old stole the show!!
