Record-Setting truTV Joins Super Bowl Lineup With Ad Featuring NFL Superstar Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers

NEW YORK, Jan. 12 -- truTV, which scored its best ratings year ever in 2009, will be part of the ad lineup for CBS's broadcast of the Super Bowl. truTV's first Super Bowl ad will feature one of the NFL's most popular players, Troy Polamalu of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

truTV programming includes original series that focus on giving viewers access to places and situations they can't normally experience. The network's Super Bowl spot will highlight an addition to truTV's lineup: NFL FULL CONTACT, a behind-the-scenes look at professional football that debuts Monday, Feb. 8, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), the day following the Super Bowl. The ad is scheduled to appear in the second quarter of the game, prior to the two-minute warning.

truTV was known as Court TV before being rebranded in 2008. In 2009, truTV enjoyed its most-watched primetime in the network's 18-year history, as deliveries grew 29% among adults 18-34 and 11% among adults 18-49.

"Clearly, truTV has arrived and has enjoyed great success in attracting a new, younger audience," said Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager of truTV/In Session. "Having an ad in the Super Bowl gives the network the biggest possible platform to show viewers and the advertising community that truTV has emerged as a major player in television."

truTV's Super Bowl spot is being created by Grey, a renowned New York agency. Grey's recent Super Bowl work includes iconic spots for ETrade. truTV's ad will focus on Polamalu, one of the NFL's top safeties. Since the 2005 season, Polamalu has earned two Super Bowl rings. He was also chosen for five-straight Pro Bowls from 2005-2009.

truTV is television's destination for real-life stories told from an exciting and dramatic first-person perspective. Currently seen in 91 million U.S. households, the 18-year-old network is enjoying its best deliveries ever in key demographics. truTV features high-stakes, action-packed originals that give viewers access to places and situations they can't normally experience. truTV's primetime fan favorites include the original series Black Gold, Operation Repo, The Smoking Gun Presents´┐Ż and Forensic Files. During the daytime, the channel features expert trial coverage under the name In Session.
