Thursday's Edition of "I'm a Celebrity" Generates Night-to-Night Ratings Growth

UNIVERSAL CITY, CALIF. - June 5, 2009 - NBC announced today that "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!," the hot summer series, has been extended to a two-hour edition next Wednesday, June 10 from 8-10 p.m. (ET). This joins the previously announced two-hour installment set for Monday, June 8. On Tuesday evening, June 9, the network will be showcasing exciting NHL coverage of game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals between the Detroit Red Wings and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Next week's exciting episodes will showcase Heidi and Spencer's nightmarish adventure inside the creature-infested "Lost Chamber" and the fate of their return. Meanwhile, the hazardous conditions of living in the jungle come to the forefront and begin to take their toll on our celebrities.

The series airs Mondays-Thursdays in its regular 8-9 p.m. time slot until the final week of the show, with the finale on Wednesday, June 24 (8-9 p.m. ET). In addition, each Sunday beginning June 7, MTV will air a marathon of the week's episodes including never-before-seen footage and commentary from cast members in real time, providing an enhanced viewing experience for die-hard fans.

"I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" scored day-to-day ratings increases with its most recent telecast Thursday night, growing versus its Wednesday edition by 6 percent in 18-49 (with a 1.9 rating vs. a 1.8 on Wednesday) and by 8 percent in total viewers (5.2 million vs. 4.8 million), according to "live plus same day" fast affiliate-based viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research. Earlier in the week, "I'm a Celebrity" generated the #1 primetime rating among adults 18-34 on the major networks Monday night, won its Tuesday time period in adults 18-49 and scored NBC's highest adult 18-49 rating in the Wednesday 8-9 p.m ET hour since February 25.

Co-hosted by Damien Fahey and Myleene Klass, "I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!" is the ultimate social experiment for charity as celebrities are dropped into the heart of the Costa Rican jungle to face fun and comedic challenges designed to test their survival skills. America is the puppet master, controlling their favorite celebrities by putting them into challenges and tasks to win food, supplies and luxury items. In each episode, friendships will be tested, hilarity will ensue and viewers will decide which celebrities stay or go. The last remaining star will be crowned King or Queen of the Jungle, winning a substantial cash prize for his or her favorite charity.
