Disney XD Celebrates 1st Anniversary with Record Viewing Levels

Begins Second Year by Setting Another Ratings Record for a Series Premiere

February 17, 2010 - Disney XD, the boy-focused, girl inclusive entertainment brand for kids age 6-14, with a 24-hour, ad-supported basic cable network as its centerpiece, marked its first anniversary as the growth leader in Total Day among all cable networks serving its targeted demographics, and has increased its core viewing audience of Kids 6-14 by 41 percent and built its viewership among Tweens 9-14 by 59 percent.

In its inaugural year, Disney XD delivered at record setting levels in both Prime and Total Day in Total Viewers and key kid demos, powered by the recent premiere of "I'm In the Band" (January 18, 2010), the channel's No. 1 original series launch at the time of its premiere (including its 10+ years branded Toon Disney), "Phineas and Ferb," "The Suite Life on Deck" and "Zeke and Luther."

Disney XD continued the momentum into its second year by premiering the animated comedy "Kick Buttowski � Suburban Daredevil" to all-time ratings highs among Kids 6-14, Kids 6-11 and across core boy demos on Saturday, February 13.

Disney XD is from the same winning team that has delivered Disney Channel to the No. 1 rank in primetime among Kids 6-11 and Tweens 9-14 for the past seven and nine years, respectively, and the No. 1 or No. 2 spot in Total Viewers among all cable channels for the past four years.

Paul DeBenedittis, Senior Vice President, Programming, Scheduling, Multiplatform, Acquisitions, Disney Channels Worldwide, said" "We launched Disney XD around the world with the benefit of the Disney brand credibility and a unique creative point of view that speaks to kids 6-14, especially boys, who told us they wanted empowering stories that depict accomplishment, heroism and teamwork. We aimed high with a mix of programming that meets our viewers' needs, and now we put the pedal to the metal to further build this exciting multi-platform brand."
