FOX REALITY CHANNEL'S ORIGINAL SERIES "SOLITARY v3.0" DELIVERS THE LARGEST AUDIENCE OF ANY ORIGINAL SERIES IN ITS HISTORY

"Solitary v3.0" January 17th Premiere Draws over 330,000 Viewers and 200,000 Young Adults

LOS ANGELES, CA � The third season of Fox Reality Channel's most popular original series "Solitary", delivered the network's highest ratings ever for an original series since its launch in 2005.

"Solitary v3.0" more than tripled Fox Reality Channel's prior time period delivery of A18-49. Fox Reality Channel also beat 44 competing cable networks in the A18-49 rating from 9-10:30p, including Bravo, Style, WE, TV Guide Channel and GSN.

"We are so proud of the premiere performance of 'Solitary v3.0' premiere. 'Solitary' was our first network original series and the franchise has shown tremendous growth in quality and popularity over the past three seasons," said Bob Boden, Senior Vice President of Programming, Production & Development at Fox Reality Channel.

The premise of the "Solitary" franchise is simple: the last person to leave their small, barren and completely isolated "pod" after enduring grueling activities presented by their omnipresent digital taskmaster, Val �� wins bragging rights and $50,000. The nine individuals, "subjects" who have their names replaced by numbers, are subjected to sleep deprivation, extreme temperatures and other forms of environmental stress, thus causing them to leave their pod and lose the competition.

Additional Fox Reality Channel original productions include such notable series as AMERICAN IDOL EXTRA, THE ACADEMY, BATTLE OF THE BODS, MY BARE LADY, PARADISE HOTEL 2, and LONG WAY DOWN. Upcoming original series include RE-INVENTING BONADUCE and HOUSEHUSBANDS OF HOLLYWOOD, among other originals slated.

"Solitary v3.0" is executive produced and co-created by Emmy Award-winning producer Andrew Golder (Win Ben Stein's Money, Identity, World Series of Blackjack) and Lincoln Hiatt (Unan1mous).
