The hour-long daytime series, distributed in national syndication by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution, is currently sold in more than 95% of the U.S. for the 2006-2007 TV season.

On her September 12 show, Ms. Stewart will unveil the details of Martha's Ultimate KB Home Giveaway, a uniquely interactive "watch and win sweepstakes," which will award one lucky viewer with a Martha Stewart-designed KB Home. Valued at up to $400,000, the home will be located in one of the Martha Stewart KB Home communities in Cary, North Carolina (outside of Raleigh), or Fairburn, Georgia (outside of Atlanta). To enter the sweepstakes (which runs from September 12 to October 6), viewers will be asked to watch the daytime show to get Martha's daily clue and find the KB Home Key hidden online in a photo-realistic room located on the marthastewart.com website and the show's affiliate websites. In addition to the home, which will be given away on October 17, THE MARTHA STEWART SHOW will also give three viewers the chance to win a new 2007 Chevrolet Suburban (valued at $51,000 each).

Martha Stewart said: "I am so excited about our home giveaway sweepstakes. We are very proud of our collaboration with KB Home and we're very pleased that one viewer will have the opportunity to enjoy all the things that I believe make a house, a home."

Once on the sweepstakes site, viewers will be able to access a personalized tour of the game with Ms. Stewart, with a chance to execute multiple tasks including turning on the faucets, lifting up pillows and looking underneath vases for the special key. Each day, a new room vignette will appear with a new hiding place for the key. Players on marthastewart.com can also link to their hometown's affiliate station site to play a "bonus" round of the game. Viewers can also receive additional entries by sending the game link to a friend and by clicking on a link for info about the KB Home communities.
