Within One Week of Successful Launch on FOX in U.S., Drama Sees Similar Triumph in More Than 100 Countries

For the first time in television history, a U.S. series has immediately established a global audience. Within one week of its highly-rated American debut, TOUCH has created a tremendous worldwide buzz.

In country after country, the premiere of TOUCH was one of the highest-rated individual channel telecasts of the season, ranking No. 1 or No. 2 in its time period and outperforming the primetime average of the broadcaster by double- or triple-digit percentage increases.

Last week on Sky 1 in the United Kingdom, TOUCH ranked No. 1 in its time period among all basic cable and satellite channels. On FOX Italia (Italy), the premiere ranked as the channel's second highest-rated premiere ever. On FOX in Spain, TOUCH ranked No. 1 in its time period among Adults 18-49 in the Pay TV universe, and on FOX Latin American Channels, TOUCH outperformed the channels' primetime average by double- and triple-digit percentage increases in Argentina, Colombia and Mexico. Other successful launches included ProSieben in Germany, TV3 in Norway and Channel 1 in Russia. Finally, airing day-and-date with FOX in the U.S., the series' second episode on Global-TV in Canada outperformed the January 25 "Special Sneak Preview" telecasts of the pilot by +27%.

In the "Safety In Numbers" episode airing tonight, Thursday, March 29 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, Martin (Kiefer Sutherland) comes in contact with a homeless man who possesses the same obsession with numbers as Jake (David Mazouz).

TOUCH is a production of Chernin Entertainment and Tailwind Productions, in association with 20th Century Fox Television. Tim Kring created the series and wrote the pilot. Kring, Francis Lawrence ("Water for Elephants"), Peter Chernin, Katherine Pope, Kiefer Sutherland, Suzan Bymel ("The War at Home") and Carol Barbee ("Jericho") are executive producers. Lawrence directed the pilot.
