NICKELODEON STRIKES SPONSORSHIP DEALS FOR BRAND-NEW "NICKMOM" CONTENT DESTINATION WITH GENERAL MILLS, TARGET AND RECKITT BENCKISER

NEW YORK - Feb. 8, 2012 - Nickelodeon today announced that General Mills, Target and Reckitt Benckiser have signed on as charter sponsors for NICKMOM, the network's new multiplatform content destination targeting moms. These multi-million dollar deals will include brand integration, content development and sponsorships across both the new NICKMOM TV block, debuting 4Q12 on Nick Jr., and NICKMOM.com, which launched last year.

"With the creation of NICKMOM we are offering a unique comedy and entertainment destination created just for today's moms," said Jim Perry, Head of Sales, Viacom's Nickelodeon Group. "Our partners clearly understand the value of moms and recognize our ability to serve moms with relevant entertainment across all platforms."

The announcement was made today during a presentation to advertisers in New York City, where Nickelodeon presented its plans and TV and digital programming slate for NICKMOM, including: the pick-up of NickMom Night Out, a 26-episode stand-up comedy series; and more than 50 new projects in development.

The presentation also included exclusive research findings from Nickelodeon's latest research study, "UnMommed," conducted in partnership with Reckitt Benckiser, offering an in-depth look at the modern family dynamic and the role moms play within it. Findings included: modern moms run their homes like businesses; technology allows moms to mother 24/7; and despite their many skills, backgrounds and experiences, the moms' identity revolves around the role of motherhood. The NICKMOM presentation was also punctuated by performances from several mom comics, including Sherry Davey, Caroline Rhea and headlined by Wanda Sykes.

The NICKMOM nightly TV block, launching this fall on Nick Jr., will feature a mix of original long- and short-form humor-based programming, including talk shows, stand-up and sketch comedy, hidden camera and more. NICKMOM.com blog debuted last November and currently features editorial franchises, photos and video. Throughout this year, the site will evolve into a robust, mom-focused humor site complete with more editorial, photos, videos, gaming and community, becoming a fully integrated site timed to the TV launch.

Nickelodeon, now in its 32nd year, is the number-one entertainment brand for kids. It has built a diverse, global business by putting kids first in everything it does. The company includes television programming and production in the United States and around the world, plus consumer products, online, recreation, books and feature films. Nickelodeon's U.S. television network is seen in more than 100 million households and has been the number-one-rated basic cable network for 17 consecutive years.
