Network Original Holds Record Numbers for Sunday and Monday's Premiere

#1 Telecast for Household & Key Demo Deliveries Among All Cable

New York, NY, June 28, 2006 - AMC's premiere of its first-ever original movie event, Broken Trail on Sunday, June 25th and Monday, June 26th was the second most watched cable movie since 1995 and delivered the network all time record ratings.

After shattering ratings records Sunday evening, the epic western-themed movie scored again for Monday's conclusion, with a stellar 7.67 HH rating, HH delivery (6.8 million) and total viewership (9.7 million). For total day Monday, Broken Trail was the #1 telecast on all household deliveries among all cable.

The following details demographic delivery for the Sunday and Monday premiere:

Rob Sorcher, AMC's Executive Vice President of programming, packaging and production stated: "We're thrilled so many viewers chose to join AMC for our premiere of Broken Trail, and the continued rating success across night two is a testament to the cinematic quality of this epic movie."

Broken Trail is a heroic western story set in the American West at the close of the 19th century. The film is executive produced by and starring Academy Award? winner Robert Duvall, co starring Academy Award? nominee Thomas Haden Church and directed by Emmy award winning director Walter Hill.

The ratings success of Broken Trail is a culmination of a multi-tiered strategy behind the launch of AMC's first original movie. The network's largest-ever marketing initiative was unleashed in support of the film and included nationwide brand presence through advertisements in top tier national print, radio and online outlets, as well as local television, print and outdoor coverage in key AMC markets. An extensive online presence was also created with a Broken Trail mini-site, and leading up to the film's premiere, behind-the-scenes vignettes and trailers ran nationally in select movie theatres. AMC's Broken Trail attracted Ford Motor Co. to sign on as the presenting sponsor where the company will promote its "bold moves" campaign through traditional and non-traditional avenues.

In addition to the production of Broken Trail, AMC has made a number of original programming announcements from AMC, including a co-production agreement with BBC for the critically acclaimed drama "Hustle" and the network's first dramatic pilot, "Mad Men," produced and written by Matthew Weiner (The Sopranos) and set in advertising world of the 1960s.

AMC's commitment to original programming garnered record ratings growth for 2005 leading to the best year ever in the history of the network. 2005 ranked as the network's strongest year in Primetime HH ratings, Household, and A18-49 & A25-54 deliveries. Additionally, AMC ranked among the top 20 networks in primetime performance of key demos.

Western-themed programming has proved to be successful for AMC. The network's exclusive licensing agreement with Paramount Pictures in 2005 provided the network with 32 of John Wayne's greatest films, including the world premiere of the fully restored, digitally remastered High and the Mighty and Island in the Sky. The premieres of these movies, as well as the premiere of the 20th Anniversary of Clint Eastwood's Pale Rider, ranked among AMC's top ten highest rated telecasts ever.

AMC has also aired a number of successful stunts including: 'Best of the West' in June 05, 'Christmas with the Duke' in December 05; and 'Make My Sunday' and 'Make My Saturday' in February 06 and May 06, all of which delivered successful ratings for the network. Ten of AMC's top 25 telecasts ever are Westerns.
