Ben 10: Omniverse is the latest television series in the global juggernaut Ben 10 franchise and the latest original series from Cartoon Network Studios. Matt Youngberg (Transformers) is supervising producer, and the series premiere in September 2012 was the network's top-rated telecast of the day among key demos, according to Nielsen Media Research. This new series for Cartoon Network's evergreen brand also brings new excitement to the franchise, which includes a massive consumer products program led by a top-selling toyline, a series of interactive titles and more that have combined to generate more than $3 billion in global retail sales to date.
