NEW YORK, Oct. 26 -- Lifetime Television's "Human Trafficking" becomes the highest-rated original movie on ad-supported basic cable in 2005, averaging 5.5 million viewers with a 4.6 household rating, following Tuesday night's premiere of Part II.

Part II averaged 5.8 million viewers along with a 4.7 household rating, building upon the 5.1 million viewers/4.5 household rating garnered by Part I on October 24. Much of this growth was driven by Women 18-34 and Women 18-49 ratings, which were both up 15% from Part I.

The most watched program of the day on ad-supported cable among total viewers, Part II also ranked #1 in its 9-11PM (ET/PT) time period versus ad-supported cable networks among Households, W18-34, W18-49 and W25-54.

This gives Lifetime the top 11 original movies of the year in ad-supported cable based on HH rating. The previously highest rated movies were the Lifetime Original Movies "Murder in the Hamptons" and "Odd Girl Out," which both posted a 4.4 household rating. This year to date, eleven Lifetime Original Movies have averaged at least a 3.0 HH rating, an accomplishment no other ad-supported cable network has done in one year since USA in 1998.

A tough, uncompromising drama about the brutal realities behind the international trafficking of women and children for sex, "Human Trafficking" starred Academy Award(R) and Golden Globe(R)Award-winning actress Mira Sorvino, Golden Globe(R) and Emmy(R) Award-winning actor Donald Sutherland, and BAFTA Award(R)-winning actor Robert Carlyle.
