Syfy.com Pacing for New Third Quarter Highs in Key Metrics

New York, NY � September 29, 2009 � Underscoring the broad-based appeal of its new brand identity since launching on July 7, Syfy amassed the largest third quarter audience in its 17-year history, establishing a new mark in total viewers with 1.36 million.

The record viewership from June 29th through September 27 catapulted Syfy into fourth place among Adults 25-54, its highest ranking ever in third quarter, versus all basic cable entertainment networks.

Syfy also posted all-time third quarter highs in Women 18-49 (292,000) and Women 25-54 (332,000).

Syfy dramatically improved among upscale Adult 18-49 viewers (versus third quarter '08), gaining +18% in Adults18-49 with $75K+ Household Income.

The gains were driven by the diverse powerhouse primetime schedule, sparked by summer sensation Warehouse 13, Syfy's most watched series ever in total viewers (4.02 million), Adults 25-54 (2.1 million) and HH ratings (2.9), and Eureka, which soared over three million total viewers for the first time ever.

Fueled by Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth -- both on pace for series ratings records -- Syfy captured the third quarter Wednesday 9-10PM (ET/PT) time period among Adults 18-34 and Adults 18-49, while winning the Tuesday 9-10PM (ET/PT) time period in Adults 25-54.

Third Quarter Highlights

In total viewers, Warehouse 13 topped new cable series such as TNT's Hawthorne (4.0 million) and Dark Blue (3.5 million), and Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva (3.1 million). The series finished second in the 2009 freshman class behind only USA's Royal Pains.

The second half of Eureka Season Three delivered a 2.3 HH rating, 1.38 million Adults18-49, 1.72 million Adults 25-54 and 3.17 million total viewers. In addition to breaking the three million total viewers barrier, this is also the series' best performance ever in Adults18-34 and Adults 25-54.

To date, the current season of Ghost Hunters is averaging a 2.1 HH rating, 3.0 million total viewers, 1.9 million Adults18-49 and 2.0 million Adults 25-54. This marks the first time it has averaged more than two million Adults 25-54 and more than three million total viewers.

Destination Truth is also enjoying a strong ratings performance in its third season. The September 9 premiere set record highs in all key demos including Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54 as well as the first time the show averaged more than two million total viewers.

Users also flocked to the new brand identity online:
