ANIMAL PLANET EARNS ITS BEST-EVER APRIL

- SUCCESS DRIVEN BY STRONG SATURDAY AND SUNDAY PERFORMANCES FROM MY CAT FROM HELL AND RIVER MONSTERS -

(April 30, 2013, Silver Spring, Md.) - Animal Planet earned its best-ever April prime delivery across multiple demos, including P2+ (706K), P25-54 (324K) and P18-49 (305K). Continuing its first-quarter 2013 success, Animal Planet remains among the top-20 ad-supported cable networks based on M25-54 delivery (#17). The network also posted consecutive months of year-over-year delivery growth in prime across multiple demos, achieving gains for 17 straight months among P2+, P25-54 and P18-49.

The network's success in April was driven by stellar Saturday and Sunday series performances. Animal Planet's Saturday hit series, MY CAT FROM HELL, is performing heavenly among W25-54 and is the network's second-most-watched series year to date among this demo. In April, the series reached an all-time high, pulling in 1.2M P2+ viewers on 4/20, and this season, the series is averaging more than 1M P2+ viewers. MY CAT FROM HELL helped Animal Planet rank as the number-one nonfiction cable network in the Saturday 8 PM timeslot for two straight weeks (on 4/20 among P18-49; on 4/27 among W25-54).

Hellish cats aren't the only creatures that contributed to Animal Planet's April success. Monsters are a proven commodity, as the Sunday night series, RIVER MONSTERS, in its fifth season, remains the top-performing series of all time among P25-54. This season's debut pulled in 1.8 million P2+ viewers, making it Animal Planet's most-watched season opener in network history. Overall, this season's RIVER MONSTERS premieres (which all debuted in April) have delivered 1.7M P2+ viewers.
