TV GUIDE NETWORK AND TV LAND ACQUIRE EXCLUSIVE JOINT BASIC CABLE RIGHTS TO AWARD-WINNING HBO COMEDY SERIES "CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM"

Networks Jointly Acquire Multi-Platform Rights to the Hit Comedy Series Produced By and Starring "Seinfeld" Co-Creator Larry David

LOS ANGELES (November 9, 2009) � TV Land and TV Guide Network today announced that they will jointly acquire basic cable rights to "Curb Your Enthusiasm," the award-winning HBO comedy series produced by and starring "Seinfeld" co-creator Larry David. One of the most ground-breaking shows on television, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" has never before been seen on basic cable television and for the first time ever, this irreverent comedy series will be delivered to millions of new viewers by TV Guide Network and TV Land. In addition, both networks will acquire certain broadband, wireless and video-on-demand rights, bringing "Curb Your Enthusiasm" to multiple screens for fans to enjoy.

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" has recently garnered tremendous buzz and fan-following during its current season which features a long-awaited "Seinfeld" reunion 11 years after the show's finale. Airing now on HBO, the seventh season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" stars members of the famed "Seinfeld" cast, who recreate their sitcom characters and also play themselves during the show.

"'Acquiring a series of this caliber truly underscores our commitment to defining TV Guide Network as a destination for some of the best shows on television," said Ryan O'Hara, President of TV Guide Network and TVGuide.com. "'Curb Your Enthusiasm' is our second major acquisition this year and it will become another key building block in our programming line-up for 2010 and beyond."

"We are excited to bring 'Curb Your Enthusiasm to TV Land PRIME," stated Larry W. Jones, president, TV Land. "Curb Your Enthusiasm' is one of the most clever, witty and groundbreaking shows on television and we're excited to have it join our roster of top-quality sitcoms.

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" will air on TV Guide Network for a multi-year run starting February 2010. TV Land will begin airing the series in TV Land PRIME immediately following TV Guide Network's term.
