HISTORY's first scripted miniseries, HATFIELDS & MCOYS, shattered records over the three night premiere (May 28-30) with an average of 13.8 million total viewers per night and a total of more than 62 million viewers tuning in during the week. All 3 parts of HATFIELDS & MCOYS now rank as the top 3 entertainment telecasts of all time in ad supported cable history among total viewers.

This summer, HISTORY launched two more original hit series to its roster: MOUNTAIN MEN with an average of 3.5 million total viewers, 1.7 million Adults 25-54 and 1.5 million Adults 18-49, making it one the top non-fiction shows in cable and COUNTING CARS with an average of 2.6 million total viewers, 1.4 million Adults 25-54 and 1.3 million Adults 18-49.
