DISCOVERY CHANNEL SETS RATINGS RECORDS IN 1Q17 WITH BEST QUARTER EVER IN P25-54

The network hit ratings gold once again with the hit series GOLD RUSH coming in as 1Q17's #1 unscripted cable series across P/M25-54, M18-49, M18-34, and P2+. GOLD RUSH was the quarter's #1 series on all of TV - including scripted - on Friday nights across M25-54, M18-49, and M18-34. And lastly, fan favorite ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER delivered the #1 spot on Sunday nights for unscripted in P2+.
