truTV's Hot Summer Leads to Biggest Third Quarter Ever and Sets Stage for Record-Breaking Year

Hot on the heels of scoring its biggest summer ever,fast-growing network truTV secured its best third quarter ever and is on its way to its biggest year ever. Hit series like Operation Repo, All Worked Up, The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest..., It Only Hurts When I Laugh, Top 20 Most Shocking and the new, record-breaking series Hardcore Pawn have lifted the network to its best third-quarter performance ever among adults 18-49 and men 18-49. truTV, which has steadily climbed the charts since its January 2008 rebranding, also garnered a Top 10 primetime finish for the quarter with men 18-49.

"truTV's branding and programming strategy is paying off with one record-breaking performance after another," said Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager of truTV. "This quarter also brought us one step closer to chalking up truTV's biggest year ever."

truTV's outstanding performance includes the following highlights:

· truTV followed its record-breaking summer with the network's biggest third quarter ever in primetime, with 555,000 adults 18-49 and 308,000 men 18-49, with each demo up 7% compared to Q3 2009. Delivery of total viewers grew 6% to more than 1.1 million.

· truTV's success is an ongoing phenomenon that began with the January 2008 transition from Court TV to truTV. Since Q4 2007, the last quarter before the rebranding, truTV's primetime audience is up 39% with adults 18-34, 20% with adults 18-49, 60% with men 18-34 and 42% with men 18-49.

In total day, truTV's delivery of adults 18-49 has lifted the network from 20th to 12th place. In addition, truTV is now one of ad-supported cable's Top 20 networks in delivery of adults 18-34.

· truTV's original series � including All Worked Up, Hardcore Pawn, Operation Repo, The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest..., It Only Hurts When I Laugh and Top 20 Most Shocking � have frequently ranked among cable's Top 5 entertainment programs in their timeslots.
