SCI FI'S 'TIN MAN' MAKES RATINGS HISTORY

Most-Watched Program in SCI FI History

Top Cable Miniseries of 2007

SCI FI #1 Entertainment Cable Net Across All Three Nights

New York, NY � December 5, 2007 � SCI FI Channel's Tin Man miniseries delivered on its promise to go beyond the yellow brick road and found ratings gold � becoming the top cable miniseries of 2007. Over its three nights, this wild re-imagining of L. Frank Baum's Wonderful Wizard of Oz also became the most-watched program in SCI FI history, surpassing the success of the Channel's previous Emmy-winning events, Steven Spielberg Presents TAKEN and Frank Herbert's Dune.

OVERALL

During its three-night primetime run (December 2-4 @ 9-11pm), Tin Man averaged a 3.6 HH rating/3.4 million HHs, delivering 5.3 million total viewers (P2+), more than 2.9 million viewers P25-54 and 2.7 million viewers P18-49.

--In total viewers (P2+), Tin Man sailed past SCI FI's previous records � TAKEN (5.0 million) and Dune (4.6 million)

--The six-hour, three-night event drew an even 50-50 split among male and female viewers

--Tin Man made SCI FI #1 in primetime (8-11pm) among all entertainment cable networks for all three nights of its broadcast � averaging more than 2.3 million P25-54s and more than 2.1 million P18-49s. This beats the #2 network across the same three-day span by +77% and +40%, respectively.

*The above includes live plus same day info only. Full DVR playback data should be available for the miniseries by end of December, which will further increase the project's overall viewership totals.*

NIGHT 3

Night 3 of Tin Man (December 4 @ 9-11pm) brought in a 3.5 HH rating/3.2 million HHs, delivering over 5 million total viewers (P2+), 2.7 million viewers P25-54 and 2.5 million viewers P18-49. Night 3 of Tin Man was the #1 cable program for the day among P18-49s and P25-54s

NIGHT 1

Night 1 of Tin Man (December 2 @ 9-11pm) became the Channel's most-watched telecast ever in overall viewership (P2+), as well as in both of its key demos, P25-54 and P18-49. The wizardly delivery bested all of SCI FI's previous offerings, including the Emmy-winning Steven Spielberg Presents TAKEN.

--Night 1 of Tin Man ranks as the #3 basic cable entertainment telecast of 2007 among P25-54s

SCI FI will rebroadcast the miniseries, in its entirety, on Sunday, December 9 @ 5pm-11pm ET/PT.
