It’s playoff time, and both basketball and hockey post-season play paid off for networks in April. Movies continue to bring in big cash, as do familiar faces such as Nickelodeon’s "Spongebob," who celebrates his 10th year of living in a pineapple under the sea this year. A new entry to the top 10 list is Nick At Nite’s "George Lopez," showing that acquired comedies can help in acquiring big bucks.
