Bravo Ranks As #1 Cable Network In Brand Recall And Engagement Among Adults 18-49

NEW YORK - April 29, 2011 - Bravo Media is the highest-ranked network for Product Placement Effectiveness in Broadcast and Cable over the last five years, securing at least twice as many top placements as any other network, according to Nielsen IAG. This marks the first time a network has released data covering this length of time including over 2,000 product placements. Bravo led all broadcast and cable networks in driving Brand Opinion of integrated advertisers with 31 of the top 100 product placements over the last five years and scored as the No. 1 most-engaging cable entertainment network in the highly coveted 18-49 demographic.

Bravo continues to rank as the No. 1 cable network for brand recall and brand opinion lift among adults 18-49 and claimed 10 of the top 20 major product integrations in first quarter 2011.

"Nielsen's effectiveness data has consistently shown a relationship between attention paid to TV programs and the impact achieved by product integrations, so it's gratifying to see so many of our sponsorship partners among the top product placements over the last five years, said Susan Malfa, Senior Vice President of Ad Sales, Bravo Media and Oxygen Media. "Bravo is cable's leader for engagement every year, well ahead of the rest of the pack and often in front of broadcast networks as well."

Bravo consistently delivers the most affluent, educated, and engaged audience in all of cable entertainment -which results in product placements resonating with fans and directly boosting viewer perceptions of the integrated brands. Specifically, the product integration challenge during the "Top Chef All-Stars" February 16th episode ranked as the highest Brand Recall of all major product placements on cable during the first quarter 2011, and in the top five product placements including broadcast networks. Bravo's highly engaging and culturally relevant programming attracts receptive fans and viewers allowing partnerships with integrated advertisers to breakthrough with great success and results.
