ROGER CORMAN'S DINOSHARK DEVOURS MORE THAN TWO MILLION TOTAL VIEWERS AND ONE MILLION ADULTS 25-54 DURING SYFY PREMIERE SATURDAY, MARCH 13, AT 9PM

New York, NY - March 17, 2010 - Roger Corman's Dinoshark devoured more than two million (2.047) total viewers during its premiere on Syfy Saturday, March 13, at 9PM (ET/PT). The movie also gobbled up one million Adults 25-54, while averaging a 1.5 household rating.

Dinoshark powered Syfy to #4 among Adults 25-54 in prime versus all cable entertainment networks.

In Dinoshark, a lush Mexico vacation spot is terrorized by a mysterious prehistoric creature no one believes exists, except a young fishing boat captain (Eric Balfour, 24, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). To prevent a bloodbath, the captain must stop �Dinoshark� before it invades an inland waterway full of pleasure boats and swimmers. Dinoshark was produced by Roger Corman and Julie Corman.

Sharktopus, starring Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Eric Roberts, which is also produced by Roger Corman and Julie Corman, is scheduled to premiere on Syfy later in 2010.

Roger Corman, who received an Honorary 2010 Oscar, is the legendary director and producer of numerous low-budget cult classics, among them It Conquered the World, Teenage Doll, The Little Shop of Horrors, House of Usher, Pit and the Pendulum, Premature Burial, The Raven, The Masque of the Red Death, The Wild Angels and The Trip.

Corman is also credited with opening the door to a number of young filmmakers including Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, James Cameron, Jonathan Demme and Ron Howard.

The next Syfy Saturday Original Movie is Dark Relic. Airing Saturday, March 27, at 9PM (ET/PT), Dark Relic stars James Frain (The Tudors) as a battle-weary warrior leading his men home after years of fighting. But the Holy Relic he's carrying contains a terrible curse, which frees a bloodthirsty demon. Sir Gregory (Frain) and some unlikely allies confront this scourge from Hell to stop the spread of an unspeakable evil. Dark Relic is a production of Battle Productions, LLC.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in more than 96 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
