NATIONAL NIELSEN RATINGS FOR THE WEEK OF JANUARY 31 - FEBRUARY 6, 2011

FOX WINS FIVE OF SEVEN NIGHTS, MOVES INTO TV'S TOP SPOT

Winning five of seven nights last week, FOX moved into first place this season, outperforming the next highest-rated competitor (CBS) by four tenths of a ratings point. Thanks to strong performances on Monday by HUMAN TARGET and LIE TO ME, two dominant nights of AMERICAN IDOL, a winning new Friday lineup and a record-breaking SUPER BOWL XLV, FOX delivered the highest rated week on any network among Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers in over three years (since January 2008).

In addition, FOX delivered the largest in-season weekly ratings advantage (+505%) between the first and second place networks in at least 20 years among Adults 18-49.

Key weekly highlights:

· On Monday at 8pm a special telecast of HUMAN TARGET gained +75% from its most recent telecast, followed by an original LIE TO ME that out-rated its prior season average with originals by +16% among Adults 18-49 and +22% in Total Viewers.

· Wednesday's one-hour AMERICAN IDOL audition episode dominated the night and for the first time this season outperformed its equivalent night last year in Total Viewers by +2% (vs. 24.5 Mil on 1/26/10). Compared to the previous week's 8-9pm hour, AMERICAN IDOL grew by +5% among both Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers and beat the next highest rated program of the night by +157% in Adults 18-49 and +122% in Total Viewers.

· Thursday marked the very first time FOX has won the first night of the February Sweep among Adults 18-49. FOX retained 97% of its previous Thursday's performance and beat the next highest rated network of the night by +74% in Adults 18-49 and +16% in Total Viewers (16.0 vs. CBS' 13.8 Mil.).

· On Sunday, FOX posted its highest rated night ever among Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers. Coverage of the Super Bowl led FOX to the highest rated night on any network in 15 years among Adults 18-49 (since 1/28/96, Super Bowl on NBC) and the highest rated night ever in Total Viewers.

· SUPER BOWL XLV on FOX drew 111.0 million Total Viewers and became the most-watched Super Bowl - and in fact the most-watched television show - ever.

· Following the game, a special episode of GLEE posted an 11.1 rating among Adults 18-49 with 26.8 Mil Total Viewers, earning its highest ratings ever.

· Sunday's GLEE is the highest rated scripted series telecast on any network in three years in Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers (since HOUSE post-Super Bowl on 2/3/08).
