NEW YORK, September 26, 2006 � The third quarter of 2006 made Oxygen history, delivering the network�s highest rated quarter ever in Primetime among Households, Women 18 � 49 and Women 18 � 34. In Total Day, third quarter 2006 was the most watched quarter ever among Households, Women 18-49, Women 18-34 and Persons 2+.

Ratings have been fueled by a strong 3Q06 programming schedule of original series including The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, Mo�Nique�s Fat Chance, Preston Bailey: Mr. Fabulous and Snapped. Oxygen�s film package also garnered record ratings, with the television premieres of titles Raising Helen and What A Girl Wants.
