Record-Setting truTV Unveils Plans to Strengthen Network's Growing Lineup

truTV Now Ranks Among Ad-Supported Cable's Top 10 Networks in Key Demos

NEW YORK, April 27 -- truTV - one of the fastest-growing networks on television - today revealed details about several additions to the network's lineup of original programming, including a second season of CONSPIRACY THEORY WITH JESSE VENTURA, along with new projects from Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg's Katalyst (Punk'd) and Reveille (The Biggest Loser, The Office).

truTV, a Top 10 network with key audiences, had a breakthrough year in 2009, thanks to solid branding and popular programming. The network achieved strong growth with its targeted adult 18-49 audience, along with a five-year drop in median age. In the first quarter of 2010, truTV went on to record its most-watched quarter ever among adults 18-34, adults 18-49, men 18-34 and men 18-49. truTV also finished the first quarter as one of ad-supported cable's Top 10 networks in primetime delivery of adults 18-49, jumping from 16th place a year ago.

"When we introduced the truTV brand, we decided to target an audience we call real engagers - viewers who love exciting, real-life action," said Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager, truTV/In Session. "We have built a lineup that has attracted a strong fan base - and it only continues to grow."

truTV's success includes adding 70 new advertising clients during the last year. "There are many great reasons to invest in truTV right now," said David Levy, president of sales, distribution and sports for Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. "truTV has momentum and is pulling off an amazing feat - it is a male-focused network that attracts both men and women."

Today marks the first time truTV has staged its own Upfront presentation. truTV also announced an array of programming plans.
