NBC RENEWS UPLIFITING ALTERNATIVE SERIES "THREE WISHES" FOR SIX MORE EPISODES

BURBANK, Calif. -- November 3, 2005 -- NBC has renewed its feel-good unscripted series "Three Wishes" (Fridays, 9-10 p.m. ET) for six more episodes, bringing the total number of episodes ordered so far to sixteen. The announcement was made today by Kevin Reilly, President, NBC Entertainment.

"This is an uplifting and emotionally engaging show that really captures the joy of people helping people," says Reilly. "We're pleased with the growth this series has shown and encouraged by the response from both viewers and critics who have rallied behind "Three Wishes" and praised it as a quality family show."

TV Guide recently endorsed "Three Wishes" as "the new season's slam-dunk family viewing pick" and the Parents Television Council named it one of the best shows for family viewing, commending the series as "the best example yet of the positive potential of reality TV." Entertainment Weekly named "Three Wishes" one of five "favorite new fall shows" and praised it for leaving viewers "beaming about the basic goodness of humankind."

"Three Wishes" has delivered competitive numbers throughout the fall and has won its time period in both adults 18-49 and total viewers with each of its last two telecasts. Regular episodes of "Three Wishes" have averaged a 35 percent build on the show's lead-in among adults 18-49.

"Three Wishes" features five-time Grammy Award winner Amy Grant ("Rock of Ages...Hymns & Faith") leading contributors Carter Oosterhouse (NBC's "Today," "Trading Spaces"), Eric Stromer ("Clean Sweep") and Diane Mizota ("Trading Spaces: Boys vs. Girls") to communities all over the country to grant all kinds of wishes to deserving people.

Andrew Glassman (NBC's "Average Joe 1-4") and Jason Raff ("Average Joe 1-4") are the executive producers of the series for Glassman Media and NBC Universal Television Studio.
