Hit series like Operation Repo, All Worked Up, The Smoking Gun Presents: World's Dumbest..., It Only Hurts When I Laugh, Top 20 Most Shocking and the new, record-breaking series Hardcore Pawn have lifted the network to its best third-quarter performance ever among adults 18-49 and men 18-49. truTV, which has steadily climbed the charts since its January 2008 rebranding, also garnered a Top 10 primetime finish for the quarter with men 18-49.

"truTV's branding and programming strategy is paying off with one record-breaking performance after another," said Marc Juris, executive vice president and general manager of truTV. "This quarter also brought us one step closer to chalking up truTV's biggest year ever."
