'BATTLESTAR' SEASON 3 PREMIERE LEADS SCI FI TO TRIPLE-DIGIT RATINGS GAINS

#1 Cable Series for the Night

'SCI FI Friday' Reasserts Dominance

New York, NY - October 9, 2006 - Building on the summer ratings heat that brought SCI FI more than 15 million new viewers via its original series 'Eureka,' 'Who Wants to Be A Superhero?' and 'ECW,' the Channel kicked off the fall with the hotly-anticipated season 3 premiere of 'Battlestar Galactica' (October 6, 9-11pm ET/PT). In the face of stiff competition, the two-hour opener was the #1 cable series of the night. And in combination with its lead-ins, 'Heroes' (rebroadcast @ 7pm) and 'Doctor Who' (new episode at 8pm), SCI FI reasserted its dominance on Friday nights, with triple-digit demo increases vs. 4Q05.

The 'Galactica' season 3 premiere delivered a 1.8 HH rating with 2.2 million total viewers (P2+) - out-delivering its season 2.5 average in total viewers (+2%), P25-54 (+7%) and P18-49 (1.4 million, +4%).

SCI FI's 7pm-11pm SCI FI Friday lineup averaged a 1.4 HH rating, 1.7 million total viewers (P2+), 1.2 million P25-54s and 1.0 million P18-49s. Compared to the same time period last year (4Q05), this reflects increases of:

� +93% in P2+

� +75% in HH Ratings

� +120% in P25-54

� +134% in P18-49
