(Los Angeles) - Discovery Channel's landmark series, SERENGETI by American Idol creator Simon Fuller and multi-award-winning wildlife filmmaker John Downer debuted as the highest-rated nature documentary on all of television since Discovery's North America in May 2013 among P25-54, earning a 1.20 L+3 rating on Discovery. The premiere was also Sunday night's most-watched cable telecast, averaging 3 million total viewers on the network and ranking as Sunday's #1 cable telecast across all key men: M25-54, M18-49, and M18-34.

In addition, the premiere of SERENGETI reached 6.3 million total viewers across all of Sunday's airings on all Discovery networks including Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, Science Channel and Discovery en Espa´┐Żol.
