HISTORY(R) CONTINUES RATINGS DOMINANCE!

New Series FULL METAL JOUSTING Premieres to 1.9 Million Total Viewers

NEW YORK - February 13, 2012 - HISTORY continues its stellar ratings success with its series premiere of FULL METAL JOUSTING on Sunday, February 12 at 10 p.m., delivering 1.9 million total viewers, 1.2 million Adults 18-49 and 1.1 million Adults 25-54 impressions.

The program grew half hour to half hour by as much as 15% in key demos. And it was also up by +35% vs. the 2011 Sunday 10-11 p.m. time period among Adults 18-49.

Hosted by renowned jouster Shane Adams, FULL METAL JOUSTING features full-contact jousts with competitors going head-to-head on horseback in brutal tests of strength, endurance and courage. High-speed cameras capture every punishing blow as jousters charge and collide at 30 miles per hour. The last man standing takes home a $100,000 cash prize.

The combat in FULL METAL JOUSTING is no choreographed renaissance faire. It's 100% authentic, with a twist: traditional armor is replaced with modern suits of steel weighing 80 pounds, and 11-foot-long, solid fir lances are used as weapons.

FULL METAL JOUSTING is produced for HISTORY by Pilgrim Studios. Craig Piligian, Ralph Wikke and Mitch Rosa are Executive Producers for Pilgrim Studios. Mike Stiller is Executive Producer for HISTORY.
