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 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.
