THE RETURN OF ABC FAMILY'S 'WILDFIRE' DELIVERS HIGHEST PREMIERE IN THE HISTORY OF THE CHANNEL AND RACES AHEAD OF SEASON ONE

Series Is A Winner With Women 18-34, Ranking No. 1 In the Time Period Among All Basic Cable

Burbank, CA (January 5, 2006) � ABC Family's first original scripted drama WILDFIRE heated-up ratings on ABC Family with its second season premiere Monday, Jan. 2, (8:00 PM � 9:00 PM), delivering over 2.3 million total viewers and outperforming any season premiere in the history of the channel. The series also outdelivered its first season premiere by double digits in all key demos up 12% in HH (1.9 vs. 1.7), 19% in total viewers (2,338 vs. 1,968) and 29% with Adults 18-34 and 18-49 (0.9 vs. 0.7).

"It's incredibly rewarding to know the fans were as excited about the return of 'Wildfire' as we were," said Paul Lee, president, ABC Family. "And the fact that we brought in so many viewers is a testament to how good the show is. We love it that ABC Family is becoming a destination for originals of the highest quality."

The series ranked first among all basic cable in the time period with Women 18-34 (1.4 rating), Teens 12-17 (2.8 rating) and Female Teens 12-17 (4.8 rating). The WILDFIRE premiere also outperformed its season one average by 19% in HH (1.9 vs. 1.6), 22% in total viewers (2,338 vs. 1,921), 50% with Adults 18-34 and adults 18-49 (0.9 vs. 0.6).

One element contributing to this successful launch was the marketing component of a WILDFIRE micro site at www.abcfamily.com which received 1 million visitors in December who were exposed to a comprehensive content-rich micro site for WILDFIRE that included a unique five minute broadband tease. WILDFIRE will be available on iTunes Music Store beginning January 10, 2006.
