Court TV Wraps up 2006 as Most-Watched Year Ever

December 19, 2006

Court TV will conclude 2006 claiming the most-watched year in prime time in its 15-year history. The network posted best-ever figures among total viewers (913,000), Adults 18-49 (389,000) and viewing households (719,000).

Court TV R.E.D (Real. Exciting. Dramatic.), the network�s weeknight 8pm-9pm action strip, which attracted key adult and male viewers, contributed to the record-setting deliveries. Adults and Male 18-49 viewing to the R.E.D. block were up 29% and 43%, respectively, over the time period in 2005, while total viewing increased 15%.

R.E.D., which joined Court TV�s schedule in January 2006, earned a 13th place ranking in its time period among Adults 18-49 for the year, an improvement of 8 places over 2005.

Most Shocking, part of the R.E.D. rotation, was Court TV�s breakout hit of 2006. Premiering on October 4, Most Shocking delivered over a million total viewers every night and earned consistent top ten rankings among Adults 18-49 and total viewers. Most Shocking more than doubled its time period�s delivery of Adults 18-49 (+109%).

R.E.D. features a wide array of new original programs that have generated growth among Court TV�s Adults 18-49 and young Male audience. These include Beach Patrol, Hot Pursuit and SWAT USA, in addition to a variety of World�s Wildest programs (�Police Stings,� �Police Shootouts,� among others).

Court TV�s original signature series are up over year-ago in key demo delivery, including Psychic Detectives (+12%), Forensic Files (+15%), Body of Evidence (+17%), Dominick Dunne�s Power, Privilege and Justice (+22%) and The Investigators (+31%).

Among Court TV�s original series successes in 2006, were Haunting Evidence which debuted in June, averaged (its nine premieres) 1,007,000 total viewers and a 1.0 household rating in the Wednesday 10:30-11pm time slot. Murder By the Book premiered on November 13 in the Monday 10-11pm time period and became an immediate hit. The series first five airings averaged more than a half million Adults 18-49 (522,000) and 1,322,000 total viewers. Murder By the Book dramatically increased the delivery to its time period among Adults 18-49 (+30%) and total viewers (+41%).

Specials that contributed to Court TV�s banner year include the following:

� Disorder In The Court, which earned a 4th place ranking in its 8-9pm time period on November 6th for delivery of Adults 18-49 (735,000)

� On Native Soil, Court TV�s 9/11-related documentary, which became the network�s most-watched program of the summer
