Adult Swim’s Rick And Morty had a big year: After disappearing for a while, it made headlines with a surprise season premiere, it inadvertently exposed that a lot of its fans really suck, and it helped convince McDonald’s to temporarily bring back its Szechuan sauce. Now, Rick And Morty can add another feather in its cap, with a press release revealing that it’s now “the number one comedy across all of television” in the key 18-24 and 18-34 demographics. On top of that, the recent season finale gave the network its highest ratings in history—which probably means Cartoon Network as a whole, not just the Adult Swim block.

In a statement, Cartoon Network president Christina Miller said, “Rick And Morty is truly what a modern day hit looks like across multiple screens and multiple touchpoints,” adding that “[creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland] have created a world, not just a show, and fans are completely engaged.”
