[via press release from The Hallmark Channel]

HALLMARK CHANNEL EXPERIENCES BEST-EVER AUGUST

On the heels of its best month ever (July 2005), Hallmark Channel has achieved its best-EVER August in the channel�s history. This marks Hallmark Channel�s secondhighest- month ever, and the 10th consecutive month that the network ranks in the Top 10 in Total Day HH ratings. In August 2005, Hallmark Channel ranks #3 and #4 in year-to-year Total Day growth in A18-49 and A25-54 deliveries, respectively, among all ad-supported cable networks. The network attributes its August success in part to the debut of �A Man Who Became Pope� on August 15 and three original Mystery Movie franchise premieres: �McBride: Tune in for Murder,� on August 14; �Mystery Woman: Game Time,� on August 21, and �McBride: Anybody Here Murder Marty,� on August 28.

Additional highlights of August 2005 include:

We continue to do what we do best: tell great ORIGINAL stories that are engaging and entertaining.�
