NEW YORK - December 15, 2010 - Delivering double-digit growth across all key demos, Oxygen Media is pacing for its best year ever and is the fastest growing women's network among W18-49 and A18-49 in 2010, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Additionally, Oxygen's digital properties posted double and triple-digit increases with Oxygen.com pacing for its best year ever in uniques (up +62% vs. 2009) and video streams (up +111%).

"Oxygen has connected with young women like no other network," said Jason Klarman, President, Oxygen Media. "By engaging them on every platform, we've supercharged our growth across every metric."

Since the acquisition in 2007, Oxygen is the fastest growing network in cable entertainment (outperforming MTV, History and TLC) among A18-49.

While growing the overall audience by double digits in 2010, Oxygen recorded its youngest audience ever in primetime with a median age of 39.2 years (2.7 years younger vs. 2009).

Oxygen's 2010 growth was fueled by its original series "Hair Battle Spectacular," "Bad Girls Club," "Love Games," "Running Russell Simmons" and "Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood." "Hair Battle Spectacular" became the network's most watched freshman series ever, while "Love Games" was the highest rated series premiere ever among all key demos and total viewers.

Combined, the network had 53 telecasts draw more than one million viewers (up from 27 in 2009) and 28 telecasts deliver more than one million viewers in A18-49 (up from eight).

Oxygen's digital properties delivered significant double and triple digit gains this year-to-date with Oxygen.com recording a +62% increase in uniques and a +111% increase in video streams, according to Omniture. Oxygen mobile experienced enormous success with an astounding +239% increase in total page views and a +250% jump in average monthly uniques, year-to-date. The network's innovative digital content platforms were a major contributing factor to the year's ratings accomplishments and continue to be a huge driver in enhancing the Oxygen viewer experience. For this season's premiere of "Bad Girls Club Miami," Oxygen brought social TV to the next level launching OxygenLive TV, which, for the first-time ever, merged social media giants Facebook and Twitter with program content. The "Bad Girls Club" Facebook page now claims more than two million fans and was often a Top 10 trending topic on Twitter throughout the calendar year. Most recently, Oxygen added Blurts and Miso to further enhance fan experience during "Bad Girls Club."
