NEW YORK, NY - September 26, 2006 - Bravo has broken multiple network records this quarter, kicking off with setting the record for being the #1 most-watched quarter in network history in primetime, and achieving double digit growth across key demos over third quarter last year. The success of the network is attributed to the increasing viewership and multiple hit series that premiered this quarter, from "Work Out" and "Million Dollar Listing" to the stellar "Project Runway", capping a year-to-date in which more shows have delivered over one million viewers than any other year in Bravo history. The announcement was made today by Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo

In addition, this quarter brought in more younger viewers than ever before, making it Bravo's youngest quarter ever, charting viewer median age at 42.5. And, although Bravo is getting younger, it continues to remain on course as the #1 cable entertainment network for delivering advertisers a high concentration of affluent (HH $100K+) viewers in the adults 18-49 and 25-54 demos, year to date. In addition, Bravo is pacing as the #1 most educated cable entertainment network among adults 18-49 and 25-54, year to date.

"More than ever, Bravo has truly become a watercooler network," said Zalaznick. "Our programming is resonating with viewers in a way that keeps people talking about it with their friends, chatting online, text messaging and hosting viewing parties."
