Over the last six weeks, the series, which premiered on Wednesday, January 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, took a look at the most compelling and intriguing stories in Hollywood. From delving into the secret of which of Carly Simon's former lovers inspired her hit song "You're So Vain", to the munchkin mystery in The Wizard of Oz, to whether Barry Williams was really high during an episode of The Brady Bunch -- this six-part series went behind-the-scenes to investigate Hollywood's most fabled myths and legends.

Among Boomers (Adults 40-54), TV Land Myths and Legends scored triple digit increases, posting a 0.6/319,000, up +100% in rating and +102% in delivery over last year. TV Land Myths and Legends features original interviews, archival clips and appearances by celebrities -- many of whom had a direct connection to these legendary stories. Each episode explores extraordinary tales about Hollywood's most memorable stars, TV shows, films and music. The series examines the origin of these myths and rumors -- shedding light on some of pop culture's darkest mysteries. Produced by Gay Rosenthal Productions (Behind the Music and Little People, Big World), the series' Executive Producers are Gay Rosenthal, Paul Barrosse and Sal Maniaci and Co-Executive Producer is Nicholas Caprio.
