[via press release from The Hallmark Channel]

HALLMARK CHANNEL�S ORIGINAL MOVIE, �OUT OF THE WOODS,� NABS A FOREST-FULL OF VIEWERS, WITH A 2.6 HH RATING!

Original Movie is Highest Rated Cable Movie of the Day Number One, W25-54; Number Two, A25-54

The premiere of �Out of the Woods,� a Hallmark Channel Original movie, came out with a growl, leaving its competition in hibernation as it delivered a 2.6 HH coverage area rating with 1,785,000 homes becoming the highest rated ad-supported cable movie of the day, and the second highest ad-supported movie of the week (Nielsen Media Research, 3/28-4/3/05).

The Original movie, which aired Saturday, April 2, 8-10 p.m., attracted nearly 3.4 million unduplicated viewers Persons 2+ and was part of Hallmark Channel's third highest day ever and highest week ever.

Competitively, "Out of the Woods" ranked #2 in HH Rating in the time period, and for key demographics ranked #1 in W25-54 (1.6 rating) and #2 in A25-54 (1.2 rating) among all 59 ad-supported cable networks. In addition, �Out of the Woods� was the second highest Hallmark Channel telecast in network history among HH delivery. It ranked among the top 5 all-time Hallmark Channel telecasts for each key demographic, notably #3 among A25-54 (955,000 viewers) and #4 among W25-54 (650,000 viewers).

"Out of the Woods" also showed impressive growth over its "Straight From the Heart" lead-in (which averaged a solid 1.6 HH rating). It also tripled its 8-10p time period average in W25-54 (+204%).

In �Out of the Woods,� seven-time Emmy� Award-winner Edward Asner (�Lou Grant�) stars as Jack Green, a sophisticated, spiritually-oriented global traveler with an ill-disguised disdain for his small-minded, self-centered family. Persuaded by his mother (Mel Harris, �thirtysomething�) to deliver legal papers to the distant patriarch, Jack�s grandson Matt (Jason London, �Jason and the Argonauts�) finds himself completely out of his comfort zone. Marooned in the woods with the enigmatic old man, the by-the-numbers attorney is surprised to discover that his seemingly �perfect� life might not be the one he actually wants to lead.
