NEW YORK, April 19, 2011 -- The "TV Land Awards 2011" scored huge, record-breaking numbers for the network, attracting over 2 million viewers for its premiere telecast on Sunday, April 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. This makes it the network's most watched "TV Land Awards" show ever. The star-studded special, which was held in New York City for the very first time, was the highest rated TV Land Awards show since 2004 across all key demos and posted double-digit gains in rating and delivery over last year's show. The "TV Land Awards 2011," which honored John Travolta and the cast of "Welcome Back, Kotter," Michael J. Fox and the cast of "Family Ties," Bill Cosby and the cast of "The Cosby Show," the cast of "The Facts of Life," Regis Philbin and music duo Daryl Hall and John Oates, reached nearly 7 million viewers for its premiere night on the network.

The "TV Land Awards" averaged over 2 million viewers, up +20% over last year's show. Among the network's target Adults 25-54 audience, the special earned a 0.8/856,000, an increase of +19% in rating and +16% in delivery over 2010's telecast. The special was a hit among Women 25-54, posting a 1.0/503,000, up +32% in rating and +30% in delivery over YAGO. And among the network's core Adults 40-54 audience, it posted a 1.3/697,000, up +19% in rating and +17% in delivery over 2010's show.

This year's "TV Land Awards" attracted a 48% larger audience to the Awards site section of TVLand.com versus last year, making it the most visited TV Land Awards to date. Social Media played a role in helping to drive this increase, specifically the TV Land Facebook Fan page which drove users to engage with posts on the page via comments and likes, and ultimately clicking through to TVLand.com for additional content around the TV Land Awards. Additionally, the photo gallery featuring celebrities on the red carpet at the show was a hit with visitors on the site, with each fan viewing nearly all 50 photos contained within the gallery.
