ID Springs into Best May Ever in Prime Up Double Digits Across All Key Demos

Investigation Discovery is in full bloom celebrating its best May ever in prime delivery among P2+ (744k), HH (619k), P25-54 (345k) and W25-54 (227k). The network bolstered its lead in May delivering high ad-supported cable ranks across the board -- # 5 network for both P25-54 and W25-54 in daytime; #7 network for P25-54 and #4 in W25-54 in total day; and #19 in P25-54 and #14 in W25-54 in prime.*

ID continues to dominate with May 2014 marking its 14th consecutive month of year-over-year total day (9a-3a) gains in delivery among the coveted W25-54 demo, and since the beginning of the season, the network has experienced year-over-year double digit prime gains among P2+, HH, P25-54, and W25-54. The explosive growth in May was fueled by top performers including The Perfect Murder (974k P2+), Nightmare Next Door (925k P2+), House of Horrors: Kidnapped (912k P2+) and Most Infamous (873k P2+).
