OXYGEN PROGRAMS SEAMLESS TUESDAY NIGHTS

Star Jones to Host Bad Girls Reunion on May 20

"Oxygen's 25iest: Power Couples" Special Hosted by Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott

NEW YORK � April 23, 2008 � Building on the success of its original programming, Oxygen is updating its programming line-up and introducing a new scheduling strategy: seamless Tuesday nights. There will be a new show or episode premiering on Oxygen every Tuesday night at 10pm ET starting with the return of "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood" on June 17. The network is also picking up another season of "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency", reuniting the Bad Girls with guest host Star Jones and airing a countdown special: "Oxygen's 25iest: Power Couples". This programming announcement comes on the heels of Oxygen's most watched quarter to date.

"Clearly, Oxygen produces shows that hit a nerve with a young, passionate audience. Viewers know that when they come to Oxygen at 10 PM on Tuesday nights � they're guaranteed to find programs they want to stick around and watch," said Amy Introcaso-Davis, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development for Oxygen. "To capitalize on that success, we're introducing seamless Tuesday nights. Beginning June 17th, there will be a new Oxygen original -- premiering every Tuesday night at 10 pm."

In "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood" actors, proud new parents and entrepreneurs, Tori Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210) and husband Dean McDermott are checking out of their bed & breakfast and moving back to Hollywood in the series' third season. Having traded in their glam 90210 lifestyle last year for their country inn, Chateau La Rue, the McDermotts are now returning to Los Angeles, balancing their burgeoning family life and busy acting careers. The show will be extended to full hour episodes and is executive produced by World of Wonder.

"Oxygen's 25iest: Power Couples," airing on June 10 at 10 pm ET, a pop-culture filled hour of today's hottest 25 power couples. Hosted by fellow power couple Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, the show will reveal new and surprising information on these dynamic duos and what earned them their title. Interviews from journalists, comedians and celebrities provide insight as to what makes them the sexiest, hottest, wealthiest and most stylish couples. We discover how they keep their romance strong in a culture that puts their every move under a microscope. The special is executive produced by World of Wonder.

Oxygen's ratings smash hit "The Bad Girls Club" returns for a final punch on Tuesday, May 20 at 10 pm ET with a reunion special hosted by Star Jones. Known for her candid and unique interview style, Jones moderates the entire second season cast of "Bad Girls" as they hash out three months of brawls, back stabbing behavior, one night stands and in one case, an arrest. When these seven "Bad Girls" entered the mansion last August, they claimed they wanted to change and shed their destructive personalities. Star Jones uses her legal expertise to distinguish fact from fiction to see which girls lived up to their word and which girls just lived it up. Jon Murray and Laura Korkoian are executive producers of The Bad Girls Club for Bunim-Murray Productions.

"The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency", one of Oxygen's most successful original series, returns for a fourth season this August. Filled with even bigger business challenges and model mayhem, season four of "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency" promises to build upon the provocative cornerstone of past seasons with a new twist � the models will all live under one roof in glamorous Los Angeles. The show is owned by Freemantle and executive produced by Stuart Krasnow for Krasnow Productions, and also executive produced by Kevin Williams and Janice Dickinson.

In "Coolio's Rules," it's Dr. Dre meets Mr. Mom, as Grammy-winning hip-hop star Coolio ("Gangsta's Paradise") goes from rap daddy to big daddy, raising a bunch of kids on his own while juggling his music career, a new clothing line and his love life. Coolio's Rules airs later this year. The show is executive produced by Chris Coelen, Greg Goldman and Mike Duffy for RDF as well as Andrew Hoegl, Jonathan Singer, Susan Haber and Coolio.

Additionally, three new shows are in development, with the first new show launching in 2009. Shows in development include:

"Dance Your Ass Off." Do these cha cha shoes make my ass look fat? In Dance Your Ass Off, flab-u-lous competitors will Dance their Assess Off to unleash their inner thin. Eight dance partners work all week to get ready to be judged on their dancing prowess. Each episode culminates with a weigh-in and the "dance-off." From Executive Producers Lisa Ann Walter and Kate Rigg.

"Glamazons." "Sex and the City" meets "The Pussycat Dolls" � and it's all SUPERSIZED. Fresh from America's Got Talent, these four single women living in New York City will juggle their personal lives and pursue their dreams of conquering the music industry and Sin City -- all while having the fresh and inspiring attitude of being big and proud of it. From Executive Producer David Broome.

"Meltdown" [working title]. TMZ and Us Weekly write the captions � Meltdown tells the story. Britney's strapped to a gurney ... Amy's facing her addictions ... Lindsay's checking in and out of rehab. In each episode of Meltdown, Oxygen peels back the glossy cover and reveals the inside story behind the celebrity collapse. We'll watch step-by-step as our main character's life blossoms into glamour, money and fame and how it all implodes into failure, shocking behavior and more. Meltdown is the story behind the story. Executive produced by Jupiter Entertainment.
