HISTORY(R)'S "HATFIELDS & MCCOYS" CONTINUES BLOCKBUSTER RATINGS WITH 13.1 MILLION TOTAL VIEWERS ON NIGHT TWO

THE TWO NIGHTS RANK AS THE #1 AND #2 ENTERTAINMENT TELECASTS OF ALL-TIME IN AD-SUPPORTED CABLE

New York, NY, May 30, 2012 - Night two of HISTORY's HATFIELDS & MCCOYS garnered 13.1 million total viewers on Tuesday, May 30 from 9-11:05 p.m. The hit, scripted three-night event, whose finale is tonight at 9pm ET/8c, continued its ratings dominance with 4.7 million Adults 18-49, 5.8 million Adults 25-54, 2.5 million Males 18-49 and 3.2 million Males 25-54.

Among total viewers, Part 1 & Part 2 now rank as the #1 and #2 entertainment telecasts of all time in ad-supported cable. In Adults 25-54 and Men 25-54, part 2 retained 100% delivery from night one.

HATFIELDS & MCCOYS is the true American story of a legendary family feud - one that spanned decades and nearly launched a war between Kentucky and West Virginia. HATFIELDS & MCCOYS, a new three-part, six-hour scripted miniseries, showcasing an all-star cast headed up by Academy(R) Award winner Kevin Costner and Golden Globe(R) nominee Bill Paxton star as Devil Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy, respectively. The mini series premieres on May 28, 29 and 30, at 9 p.m. on HISTORY(R).

HATFIELDS & MCCOYS is the story of a clash of clans that evoked great passion, vengeance, courage, sacrifice, crimes and accusations, and includes a cast of characters that changed the families and the history of the region forever. The Hatfield-McCoy saga begins with Devil Anse Hatfield and Randall McCoy. Close friends and comrades until near the end of the Civil War, they return to their neighboring homes - Hatfield in West Virginia, McCoy just across the Tug River border in Kentucky - to increasing tensions, misunderstandings and resentments that soon explode into all-out warfare between the families. As hostilities grow, friends, neighbors and outside forces join the fight, bringing the two states to the brink of another Civil War.

Joining Costner and Paxton are Golden Globe(R) winner Tom Berenger as Jim Vance, Devil Anse's "Uncle Jim," the firebrand warlord of the Hatfield family; Emmy(R) Award winner Powers Boothe as Wall Hatfield, Devil Anse's level-headed, fair-minded older brother, who was the local (West Virginia) justice of the peace and judge; and Academy(R) Award-nominated, Emmy(R) Award-winning Mare Winningham as Sally McCoy, wife of Randall McCoy and the family matriarch who loses four sons, a daughter and her own sanity in the feud.

Rounding out the stellar cast include: Matt Barr as Devil Anse Hatfield's oldest son Johnse Hatfield, who has an unquenchable appetite for romantic trouble; Noel Fisher as Cotton Top Mounts, an illegitimate son of a Hatfield; Boyd Holbrook as Devil Anse Hatfield's son, Cap, with a cloudy eye but best rifle shot of the family; Andrew Howard as Bad Frank Phillips, a private detective/killer for hire; Jena Malone as the ruthless Nancy McCoy; Sarah Parish, as Levicy Hatfield, the strong-willed wife of Devil Anse; Lindsay Pulsipher as Roseanna McCoy, the daughter of Randall and Sally McCoy; and Ronan Vibert as Perry Cline, the McCoys' politically savvy attorney.
