Adult Swim Adds 3rd Quarter '09 as Basic Cable's #1 Ranking Network For Total Day Delivery of Adults & Men 18-34, 18-24

September 29, 2009

Late-Night Network Achieves Solid Ratings, Delivery Growth Among All Young Adult Demos Compared to 2008

With 3rd Quarter '09 performance numbers now confirmed, Adult Swim once again ranks #1 among ad-supported basic cable networks for total day delivery of adults 18-34, adults 18-24, men 18-34 and men 18-24, according to preliminary data from Nielsen Media Research. Despite expanding into the highly competitive 10 p.m. hour in prime time earlier this year, the late-night network continued to build its young adult audience base throughout the quarter, earning solid ratings and delivery growth across its targeted young adult demos. Especially noteworthy is that women 18-34 delivery grew by 35% and women 18-24 delivery by 14% compared to 3rd Quarter last year.

Also of note, the July through September '09 performance extends Adult Swim's #1 quarterly ranking with adults 18-34 among basic cable networks to 16 of the last 18 quarters�since the network premiered separately from Cartoon Network in April 2005. Adult Swim also has ranked #1 in total day delivery of adults 18-24 and men 18-24 for every quarter since becoming an individually rated network.

Among Adult Swim's programming highlights, the Tuesday, Sept. 8 telecast of Family Guy (11:30 p.m.) was the most-watched Adult Swim telecast of the quarter among adults 18-34 (1,650,000), which earned a 2.4 rating. Further highlights of Adult Swim's 3rd Quarter '09 performance vs. its 3rd Quarter �08 numbers include the following:

ADULT SWIM (Monday-Sunday, 10 p.m.-6 a.m.) vs. the Same 2008 Time Period
