'THE TRIANGLE' SCORES!

NIGHT ONE OF SCI FI'S ORIGINAL MINISERIES 'THE TRIANGLE' SHATTERS RATINGS RECORDS

NEW YORK, NY--December 6, 2005--The premiere of Night One of SCI FI Channel's Original Miniseries 'The Triangle' averaged a 3.7HH rating and over 4.3 million viewers (P2+) in its 9-11pm block! Night One of 'The Triangle' is the highest-rated program to air on SCI FI since 2003 and is the Channel's highest-rated and most watched miniseries premiere night since the Emmy Award-winning 'Steven Spielberg Presents TAKEN' (12/2/2002, 4.9 HH/6.1 million P2+).

SCI FI's audience of over 4.3 million bests the #2 entertainment program of the day, Nickelodeon's 5pm telecast of Spongebob, by nearly half a million viewers. 'The Triangle' also delivered more total viewers than Fox's 'Arrested Development' (4.1 million P2+) and 'Kitchen Confidential' (3.1 million P2+), as well as all programs on the WB and UPN.

'The Triangle' was the #1 non-sports program on cable Monday--second only to WWE's 'Monday Night Raw' on USA--in HH ratings and P2+ audience delivery. SCI FI's miniseries 'The Triangle' continues tonight @9pm and concludes on Wednesday, December 7.

In the tradition of SCI FI's blockbuster December miniseries events 'Legend of Earthsea,' 'Battlestar Galactica,' 'Steven Spielberg Presents TAKEN' and 'Frank Herbert's Dune,' 'The Triangle' has wowed audiences and brought in record ratings for the Channel.

'The Triangle' marks the first collaboration between Hollywood filmmaking talents Bryan Singer ('X-Men,' 'Superman Returns') and Dean Devlin ('Independence Day'), with a teleplay by Rockne S. O'Bannon from a story by O'Bannon and Singer & Devlin. In the SCI FI Channel miniseries, billionaire Eric Benirall (Sam Neill) is losing his cargo ships and their crews at a frightening pace-and now, he wants answers. Looking to put an end to these disappearances once and for all, Benirall commissions a diverse team of discipline-specific experts, to get to the bottom of this legendary anomaly.

Benirall's handpicked team features lead skeptic and Florida-based tabloid journalist Howard Thomas (Eric Stoltz), deep ocean resource engineer Emily Patterson (Catherine Bell), meteorologist/adventurer Bruce Geller (Michael Rodgers) and psychic Stan Lathem (Bruce Davison). Pulled together with the promise of limitless funding for their research and the chance for once-in-a-lifetime riches, the team sets out to solve this most daunting of puzzles. Deepening the mystery is Meeno Paloma's (Lou Diamond Phillips) first-hand encounter with the deadly forces at work in the Triangle. The lone survivor of a Greenpeace expedition lost at sea, Meeno is having difficulty readjusting to the life he had before that fateful expedition. A research expedition with the promise of riches soon becomes a frantic, head-turning ride through the unstoppable force that is 'The Triangle.'
