Lifetime Television Surges to Sixth Consecutive Month of Primetime Ratings Growth in April

- Up 14% in Household Ratings, 13% Among W18-34 -

NEW YORK, April 26 -- Propelled by its growth among younger viewers (+13% increase among W18-34, the second consecutive month of growth in this demo), Lifetime Television achieved its sixth straight month of primetime household ratings growth this month, averaging a 1.6, up 14% compared to April 2004 (1.4).

Lifetime Original Movies played a significant role in the network's ratings charge, averaging #1 so far in 2005 among all ad-supported cable networks in Household, W18-34, W18-49 and W25-54 ratings. Keying this month's surge was the April 4 premiere of "Odd Girl Out," the most-watched original movie on basic cable this year among total viewers (5.1 million) as well as W18-49, and the second highest among W18-34 behind the network's "Mom at Sixteen."

Lifetime now boasts the top five (based on HH rating) original movies of 2005: "Odd Girl Out," "Dawn Anna," "Widow on the Hill, "Lies My Mother Told Me," and "Mom at Sixteen." Lifetime's Original Movies are up 42% in HH rating versus last year, +100% among W 18-34 rating and +71% among W 18-49.

The network's Monday movie showcase "New Movie Mondays" continued its impressive growth, up 32% in HH ratings, +67% among W18-34 and +46% among W18- 49 versus last year's Monday Prime Movie.

Lifetime's documentary on the epidemic of domestic violence, "Terror at Home: Domestic Violence in America," became the network's second most-watched documentary ever during its premiere on April 10, averaging 1.4 million P2+. The documentary also sparked an enormous response from viewers who contacted the network's anti-violence non-profit partners in record numbers for more information and support.

Lifetime Movie Network also demonstrated primetime strength in April, gaining 14% in household rating (0.8 vs. 0.7) while rising 100% among W18-34 rating, +50% W 18-49 rating and +20% W 25-54 rating. In Total Day, LMN increased 20% in HH rating, +50% W 18-34 and +33% W 18-49.
