NEW YORK, July 24 -- For the second straight week, Lifetime Television's new powerhouse Sunday night drama lineup "Side Order of Life," "State of Mind" and smash hit "Army Wives" propelled the network to the top spot in primetime (8-11 p.m., ET/PT) on July 22 among households, W18-49, W25- 54, and W18+.

Driving the network's year-long increase in younger viewers -- Lifetime is up 17% YTD among W18-34 -- "State of Mind" followed in the bootprints of sibling "Army Wives" record-setting episode-to-episode growth by leaping 11% in W18-34 (1.0 rating) and 8% in W18-49 (1.4 rating) in its second outing at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), compared to its July 15 premiere.

"Side Order of Life" finished #1 among W18-49 (1.1) as well as #1 among W25-54 (1.4) in its 8 p.m. (ET/PT) time period.

For the second week in a row, "Army Wives" beat the three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) in its 10 p.m. (ET/PT) time period among W18-34 and W18-49. The ratings juggernaut "Army Wives" was also the #1 ad-supported cable program for the entire week (July 16-22) among W18-34 and W18-49.

Said Susanne Daniels, President, Entertainment, Lifetime Networks: "We feel these ratings demonstrate that in just two short weeks our new original programming has clearly resonated with women. With their engaging and intelligent perspectives on the modern dilemmas all women juggle in their lives, Side Order of Life and State of Mind, along with our water cooler hit "Army Wives," have stamped Lifetime as the place for women to turn on Sunday nights."
