BBC AMERICA registered the highest ratings growth in prime time among television networks for September 2011, up 55% year on year*. The channel also recorded its best ever quarter in Q3 prime and total day, up 18% and 23% respectively**.

BBC AMERICA General Manager, Perry Simon, said: "We've recorded best ever ratings three straight quarters in a row and introduced new drama and comedy destinations Dramaville and Ministry of Laughs. These results underline the sheer quality and strength of the programming we're delivering to viewers, which will continue to grow as we add original programming to our slate in the coming months."

The channel's top-rated shows in Q3 included iconic sci-fi series, Doctor Who, and the world's biggest car show, Top Gear. It also won acclaim for 1950s conspiracy thriller The Hour and powerful detective series Luther.

BBC AMERICA airs its first unscripted original series next month, panel show Would You Rather? with Graham Norton, premiering November 5 as part of the Ministry of Laughs.
