"ARNIE" BECOMES MOST-WATCHED ORIGINAL PRODUCTION IN GOLF CHANNEL HISTORY

1.75 Million Unique Viewers Tune Into Arnie

#Arnie Trends on Twitter with Fans and Pros During All Three Premieres

GolfChannel.com Launches Social Hub to Capture Stories About #Arnie and Me

ORLANDO, Fla. (April 17, 2014) - Arnie, Golf Channel's three-night, primetime television event about the life and legacy of Arnold Palmer, became the most-watched original production in Golf Channel history, according to Nielsen viewership data. From Sunday, April 13, through Tuesday, April 15, 1.75 million unique viewers tuned into all or part of Arnie. Additionally, #Arnie trended nationally on Twitter during all three premieres.

Each installment of Arnie was Golf Channel's most-watched program of the day and each bested its previous year's timeslot by no less than 100 percent and up to 295 percent.

Arnie & His Army: Sunday, April 13

The first installment of Arnie garnered 471,000 viewers, which nearly doubled (+95%) Golf Channel's previous most-watched original film, War By The Shore (241,000 viewers - September 2012), which featured the epic 1991 Ryder Cup and was produced by 51-time Emmy Award-winner and former HBO Sports President Ross Greenburg. It also represented the most-watched premiere of any Golf Channel original program on record.

Arnie & His Majors: Monday, April 14

Arnie's second hour also delivered, with 341,000 average viewers contributing to Golf Channel's most-watched Monday after the Masters and besting its previous year's time slot by 124 percent.

Arnie & His Legacy: Tuesday, April 15

The final hour of Arnie attracted 320,000 averge viewers, representing Golf Channel's most-watched program on a Tuesday in more than two years (Big Break Ireland, Feb. 22, 2011 - 351,000). It also topped its 2013 timeslot by 295 percent.
