A&E'S MONDAY NIGHT LINEUP OF THE EMMY-WINNING �INTERVENTION' AND NEW HIT �HOARDERS' RETURN WITH DOUBLE-DIGIT GROWTH AND A NEW RECORD

SEASON TWO PREMIERE OF �HOARDERS' BECOMES A&E'S MOST-WATCHED ORIGINAL SERIES SEASON OPENER AMONG KEY DEMOS IN NETWORK HISTORY GARNERING 3.2 MILLION VIEWERS

SEASON EIGHT PREMIERE OF EMMY-WINNING SERIES "INTERVENTION" GARNERS 2.5 MILLION VIEWERS, 39% HIGHER THAN PREVIOUS SEASON

NEW YORK, NY � December 1, 2009 � A&E's critically-acclaimed hit Monday night real-life series "Intervention" and "Hoarders" returned last night for all-new seasons with tremendous double-digit growth over their previous seasons, while setting a new record for a season premiere.

The premiere of the second-season of A&E's newest hit series "Hoarders" garnered 3.2 million total viewers and 1.9 million adults 18-49 and 25-54, the best ever season opener for any original A&E series among adults 18-49 and 25-54. Versus the "Hoarders" first season average, the second season premiere posted gains of 52% among total viewers, and 46% among adults 18-49 and 25-54. "Hoarders" was also A&E's most-watched telecast of 2009 to-date in adults 25-54 and total viewers.

The eighth season premiere of A&E's 2009 Emmy Award-winner for Outstanding Reality Program "Intervention" was watched by 2.5 million total viewers, 1.6 million adults 18-49 and 1.5 million adults 25-54. Versus its seventh season, the premiere posted gains of 39% in total viewers, 25% in adults 25-54 and 23% among adults 18-49.

"Hoarders" shines a light on the world of extreme hoarding; a mental disorder marked by an obsessive need to collect things, even if the items are worthless, hazardous or unsanitary. The series takes a fascinating look at the lives of people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of a personal crisis. Whether they're facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, they are all desperately in need of help. The series captures the drama as experts work to put each hoarder on the road to recovery.

The Emmy Award-winning "Intervention" is a powerful and gripping series in which people confront their darkest demons and seek a route to redemption. The series profiles people whose dependence on drugs and alcohol or other compulsive behavior has brought them to a point of personal crisis and estranged them from their friends and loved ones. Each episode ends with a surprise intervention that is staged by the family and friends of the addict, and which is conducted by one of three specialists.

Inspired by the incredible response from viewers, individuals and families in recovery to "Intervention," A&E Network along with leading federal agencies and non-profit organizations launched The Recovery Project. The multi-year, multi-platform initiative was designed to help raise awareness that addiction is a treatable disease and recovery is possible. This past September more than 10,000 people, including individuals and families in recovery, treatment partners and advocates from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, gathered in New York City for a historic walk across the Brooklyn Bridge to symbolize unity and hope for recovery. The walk ended in Cadman Plaza and was followed by a rally featuring public speakers and a performance by Smokey Robinson.

A&E continues to co-host, along with the Partnership for a Drug Free America (PDFA), and leading MSOs such as Time Warner Cable, Cox and Comcast, Intervention Town Hall meetings in cities across the country. The Town Hall meetings offer opportunities for parents, teens, addicts, government officials, health professionals, substance abuse prevention experts and educators to develop a better understanding about the root causes and consequences of addiction.

"Intervention" is produced for A&E Network by GRB. Executive Producers are Dan Partland and Sam Mettler. A&E Executive Producers are Robert Sharenow and Colleen Conway.

"Hoarders" is produced for A&E by Screaming Flea Productions. Executive Producers are Jodi Flynn, Matt Chan and Dave Severson. A&E Executive Producers are Robert Sharenow and Andy Berg.

New episodes of "Intervention" and "Hoarders" air Mondays at 9PM and 10PM respectively on A&E.
