WE tv Original Series The Locator Breaks Network Records

Series Premiere Generates .98 HH Rating, Network�s Highest-Rated Original Premiere Ever; New Episode Immediately Following Earns 1.08 HH Rating

More Than 1.2 Million Viewers Tuned-In, Marking Network�s Most Watched Telecasts Ever

New York, NY - September 9, 2008 - WE tv originals continue to break network records with the network�s newest series The Locator, which premiered Saturday night at 9:00 PM ET, drawing in a .98 HH rating, making it the highest-rated premiere episode for an original WE tv series. A new second episode, which aired immediately following the premiere at 9:30 PM, generated a 1.08 HH rating for the network. Total audience reach for The Locator was 1.2 MM viewers.

"This is an amazing accomplishment and a result of the hard work and dedication of everyone here at WE tv, and the devoted cast of this incredibly powerful show," said Kim Martin, EVP and general manager for WE tv. "WE tv has achieved unstoppable original programming success this year from High School Confidential to Bridezillas, and now The Locator joins our impressive roster of hit original series."

Featuring Troy Dunn, aka "The Locator," who has spent the past 15 years searching for and successfully locating thousands of missing people, this series takes viewers through heart-warming, and sometimes wrenching, tales of regret, loss, reunion and closure as each episode follows Troy piecing together the puzzles of missing-person mysteries. In each of the series� 10 half-hour episodes, Troy personally selects one particularly dire or time-sensitive "angel" case and sets out to locate the missing person. All locating services are provided free of charge. Navigating around roadblocks and dead-ends, Troy and his team use interviews, photos, and video clips to begin to uncover clues that lead them in the right direction.

The success of The Locator follows a number of significant WE tv ratings successes, including the premiere of its critically-acclaimed High School Confidential (.93 HH rating) and the fifth season premiere of the network�s hit series Bridezillas (.84 HH rating). WE tv ended the second quarter of 2008 the strongest quarter in the network�s history with soaring viewership on-air, on demand and online. WE tv also saw significant gains among all of its key demographics and continues to outpace its competitive set in percentage growth among key demographics. WE tv ranks number one in W18-34 (+52%) and W18-49 (+45%) delivery growth, making it the "fastest growing cable network" for these younger demos, in Prime).
