SYFY MAKES HISTORY WITH RECORD-BREAKING RANKINGS

SYFY POSTS BEST OCTOBER EVER IN TOTAL VIEWERS, ADULTS 18-34, ADULTS 18-49, ADULTS 25-54, WOMEN 18-34, WOMEN 18-49 AND WOMEN 25-54

Syfy Leaps Into #3 Among A25-54 and #4 in A18-49 � Best Performance in Seven Years

New York, NY � October 27, 2009 � Extending its summer ratings surge into fall, Syfy smashed yet another viewership record with its most watched October prime in history among total viewers (1,452,000), Adults 18-34 (308,000), Adults 18-49 (733,000), Adults 25-54 (797,000), Women 18-34 (141,000), Women 18-49 (356,000) and Women 25-54 (378,000).

Syfy jumped to #3 in A25-54 and #4 among A18-49 versus all basic cable entertainment networks � its second best monthly ranking ever in these demos behind December 2002 when Steven Spielberg�s record-setting Taken premiered.

The record October performance was fueled by strong ratings from Stargate Universe and Sanctuary -- which both premiered this month -- Ghost Hunters and Destination Truth, the two highest-rated paranormal investigative series on television, along with the annual 31 Days of Halloween spook-a-thon.

Syfy also reported that in the Third Quarter, $75K+ A18-49 delivery increased by +21% vs. 3Q �08.
