"AUCTION HUNTERS" DELIVERS BIG RATINGS FOR SPIKE TV

New York, NY, December 23, 2010 - Spike TV's original series "Auction Hunters" delivered prodigious ratings for the network in its first season, culminating with a finale on Tuesday, December 21 (10:00pm-11:00pm ET/PT) that drew 2.1 million viewers and a 1.5 household rating. This marks the most-watched episode of any Spike original in 2010.

For it first season, "Auction Hunters" drew an average of 1.4 million viewers, besting Discovery Channel's "Auction Kings" (1.3 million viewers) head-to-head on Tuesday nights. With a median age of 40 years old, "Auction Hunters" was also a success in Spike TV's new agenda to broaden and expand its fan base to include older guys.

Season two of "Auction Hunters" goes into production this January and will air in the spring.

"Auction Hunters" explores the cutthroat world of storage-unit auctions with two of the best prospectors in the business, Clinton "Ton" Jones and Allen Haff. Every day in America, there are over ten thousand abandoned storage units that are put up for public auction. Each unit has the potential to be a goldmine or a bust for those who make their living hunting unclaimed property. The series offers viewers a rare look into the high stakes, financial risks and potential rewards where the right purchase can bring in serious cash.

"Auction Hunters" is produced by Gurney Productions and executive produced by Scott Gurney, Deirdre Gurney and Philip Lott. Levy is Spike TV's executive vice president, original series and animation, Tim Duffy is vice president of original programming for Spike TV and Joe Weinstock is director, original programming.

Spike TV is available in 99.4 million homes and is a division of MTV Networks. A unit of Viacom (NYSE: VIA, VIA.B), MTV Networks is one of the world's leading creators of programming and content across all media platforms. Spike TV's Internet address is www.spike.com.
