"THE MEGAN MULLALLY SHOW" DEBUTS WITH STRONG LOCAL MARKET PERFORMANCES

New Talk/Variety Show Scores in New York, Chicago and Many Other Top Cities; "Mullally" Maintains Lead-In Across All Markets

HOLLYWOOD, CA�Sept 19, 2006- NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution's "The Megan Mullally Show" debuted in national syndication Monday with strong local market performances in many of the nation's top markets.

Mullally's first show grew over its lead-in or improved over its year-ago time period average in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Houston, Tampa, Seattle, Miami, Denver, Sacramento, Orlando and in a number of markets beyond the top 20, according to Nielsen Media Research metered market data.

For its debut, Megan averaged a 1.2/4 HH rating and share in the metered markets, maintaining 100% of its lead-in. Across all markets, "The Megan Mullally Show" on average held its share in each quarter hour.

On WNBC-TV New York, "The Megan Mullally Show" averaged a 1.5 rating/5 share, more than doubling its lead-in ("Passions") and topping its lead-out ("Ellen"), while growing each quarter hour. On WMAQ-TV Chicago, the show grew 175% over its HH lead-in (local programming) and improved its time period by 21%.

Other strong performances included WISH-TV Indianapolis (2.4/5), KMBC-TV Kansas City (2.4/8), WISN-TV Milwaukee (3.0/12), WVTM-TV Birmingham (2.7/7), KFOR-TV Oklahoma City (4.8/15) and WLKY-TV Louisville (2.4/8).

Inspired by classic talk and variety shows, but with a distinctly modern-day sensibility, "The Megan Mullally Show" is tipping its hat to cross-generational audiences this season. Two-time Emmy Award-winner Megan Mullally, coming off eight seasons as wisecracking socialite Karen Walker on NBC's "Will & Grace," moves into the driver's seat as host for this daytime talk show.

Corin Nelson, veteran daytime producer and winner of five Emmy Awards as show-runner on "The Rosie O'Donnell Show," serves as Executive Producer. "The Megan Mullally Show" is distributed in national syndication by NBC Universal Domestic Television Distribution and is currently sold in more than 95% of the U.S. for the 2006-2007 TV season.
