In April Velocity's Primetime delivery climbed +16% in P18-49, +10% in P25-54, +11% in M18-49 and +15% in M18-34 while Total Day delivery jumped +18% in P18-49, +15% in P25-54, + 7% in P18-34, +22% in M18-34 and +12% in Households. April 2016 also marked 54 months of year-over-year Primetime delivery growth for Velocity among Households.

Ratings and delivery growth among Persons 25-54 was driven by new episodes of the WHEELER DEALERS franchise and the world premiere of the original, freshman series IRON RESURRECTION, which now ranks as the #3 most watched new series ever among Households and P2+ for Velocity.
