The episode ranked as the night's #5 primetime ad-supported cable program for M25-54 delivery and posted double digit gains vs. the September 2008 time slot average for P2+ (+22%) and most key demos.

With Discovery's 3Q09 top four regular nonfiction series* on Tuesday nights for M25-54 and M18-49 - DEADLIEST CATCH, AFTER THE CATCH, THE COLONY and SWORDS - the network also ranked as 3Q09's #1 ad-supported cable network on Tuesday nights for M25-54 and M18-49 delivery. It was among the top five for P25-54 (#3), P18-49 (#3), M18-34 (#3), and P18-34 (#4).

Tuesday night's SWORDS premiere at 9PM, which posted double-digit time slot gains vs. the September 2008 time slot and was a top-ten ad-supported cable program in its time slot, helped strengthen the night. Discovery was a top-five primetime ad-supported cable network on September 22 among M25-54 (#4), M18-34 (#4) and M18-49 (#5) delivery.
