THE HUB WRAPS 2012 WITH FIFTH CONSECUTIVE QUARTER OF YEAR-OVER-YEAR AUDIENCE GROWTH ACROSS KEY DEMOS

Q4 Momentum Powered by Launch of New Series "Littlest Pet Shop" And Continued Strength of Original Series

LOS ANGELES -- The Hub TV Network continued its ratings momentum as it wrapped up its second full year of programming by delivering strong 4th quarter 2012 results that cap a run that now extends to five consecutive quarters of year-over-year audience growth. The solid fourth quarter included the successful debut of the much-anticipated animated Hub TV Original Series "Littlest Pet Shop," produced by Hasbro Studios.

"Littlest Pet Shop" was the top-ranked original series on the network in 2012, and its pairing with the hit series "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic" produced a potent Saturday morning block (10 a.m. - noon ET) for The Hub.

In the fourth quarter, the powerhouse block of "My Little Pony Friendship is Magic" and "Littlest Pet Shop" (Saturday, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.) earned hefty year-to-year delivery gains among Kids 2-11 (+75%, 226,000), Kids 6-11 (+112%, 106,000), Women 18-49 (+97%, 73,000), Adults 18-49 (+95%, 119,000), Persons 2+ (+91%, 404,000) and Households (+90%, 254,000).

For the quarter, the top five original series on The Hub with Kids 2-11 were "Littlest Pet Shop," "My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic," "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series," "The Aquabats! Super Show!" and "Care Bears: Welcome To Care-A-Lot."

The top five original series on The Hub with Kids 6-11 were "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series," "Littlest Pet Shop," "Family Game Night," "Dan Vs." and "The Aquabats! Super Show!."

The network's December Total Day performance marked the twelfth consecutive month of year-over-year gains among Kids 2-11, Kids 6-11, Women 18-49, Persons 2+ and Households.
