VH1 Experiences Hyper Social Growth in 2011; Ranks as a Top Social TV Network

NEW YORK, Dec. 20, 2011 -- VH1 increased viewership across the board in 2011, fueled by such hit original series as the scripted "Single Ladies," the year's 3rd highest rated new basic cable series "T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle," social media darling "Basketball Wives" and viewer favorite "Love & Hip Hop."

VH1's total viewer impressions in primetime for 2011 are up 6%, averaging 532,000 viewers. Impressions for viewers in the 18-49 demo are up +8%, averaging 344,000 viewers. The increases are even higher in the women demos -- up +15% among women 18-49 and up +13% among women 18-34.

The network's momentum built as the year progressed. Primetime ratings in the 18-49 adult demo in the fourth quarter have increased 50% compared to the same time period in 2010, averaging a .3. Viewership impressions for the same group and time period increased 38%, averaging 363,000 viewers.

The growth was even stronger among women viewers. VH1 averaged a .5 in the Women 18-49 demo, up +67% compared to the same time period last year. The network saw a +50% increase in Women 18-34 ratings, averaging a .6 with this group.

Several of VH1's shows trended regularly on Twitter including Mob Wives, Basketball Wives and Love & Hip Hop.

In addition, VH1 saw significant growth across its multiple platforms and screens. VH1 Digital generated a +28% increase in video streams year-over-year, while VH1 Mobile drove a +21% increase in monthly visitors to the mobile over the past year.
