MTV DELIVERS SIXTH CONSECUTIVE QUARTER OF GROWTH

Four of Top-15 Original Cable Series in Q2 2011 -- More than Any Other Network

"Ten Spot" Ranks #1 Among all Cable Nets with 53% Ratings Jump In Time Period

MTV2 Delivers Its Highest Rated Quarter Ever

New York, NY - June 29, 2011 - MTV, a division of Viacom Inc. (NYSE: VIA and VIA.B), delivered four of the top 15 original cable series of 2Q 2011, more than any other network, and marked its sixth consecutive quarter of growth, with ratings up 6% over the last year period. In addition, MTV scored four of the top five cable telecasts of the second quarter, which saw broad growth across the network's diverse lineup of established reality franchises, newer hit reality series and scripted launches.

MTV's top original cable series of the second quarter were "American's Best Dance Crew" (#10), "Real World: Las Vegas" (#11), "16 and Pregnant" (#12) and "Teen Wolf" (#13).
