It's No Joke! Nick At Nite's Hi-Jinks Scores Triple Digit Gains For Premiere Episode

Over 2.8 Million Total Viewers Tune in to Network�s Original Hidden Camera Show

Nick at Nite #2 Basic Cable Net Among Total Viewers for Premiere�s Time Period

New York, NY, August 4, 2005 � Nick at Nite�s hidden�camera series, Hi-Jinks, drew triple digit gains for the network�s premiere telecast on Tuesday, August 2 at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT, averaging over 2.8 million total viewers and posting a 2.4 HH rating. The network�s latest original, in which adults play good-natured pranks on kids, fueled the network to triple digit gains in household rating, total viewers, demo delivery and rating, powering Nick at Nite as the #2 basic cable net among total viewers for the premiere�s time period.

Each week also features instantly recognizable stars lending their talents to play tricks on unsuspecting kids. Last night�s episode featured actress/model Vivica Fox (Kill Bill Volume I) holding a casting session to find teens to appear in a commercial for her new fragrance, �Foxy,� which smells awful. Other pranks in the show included a dancing bear at the zoo and giant cell phones sold to teens.

Nick at Nite improved +117% over the same time period last year, averaging over 2.8 million total viewers. The premiere installment posted a 2.4 household rating for the airing, up +100% over 2004. The telecast averaged a 0.6/593,000 among Adults 18-49, Nick at Nite's core audience, lifting prior-year levels by +100% in rating and +113% in delivery.
