Oh baby! Sunday’s episode of the Disney Channel sitcom Good Luck Charlie posted across-the-board highs for the kiddie network.

The episode dubbed “Special Delivery” for obvious reasons (see photo at right) ranked as the the No. 1 telecast among kids 2-11 (a whopping 9.3 rating, or 3.8 million runny nosers). It also averaged a 13.3 rating and 3.3 million among kids 6-11, and an astonishing 13.0 rating and 3.1 million among tweens 9-14.

Good Luck Charlie follows the now seven-member Duncan Family. (Sunday’s episode featured the arrival of the newest member, Toby). The original conceit of the sitcom, which debuted in 2010, involved the spirited Duncan tweeners coping with the arrival of their youngest sibling, Charlie. It was created to appeal to families, not just tots.
