NEW YORK, N.Y. - Jan. 8, 2013 - An all-premiere line-up helped HGTV to the No.1 spot among all ad supported cable networks on New Year's Day among upscale A25-54, W25-54 and W18-49 . In addition, HGTV secured its highest New Year's Day primetime and Tuesday primetime in network history. The day's programming included the annual live and commercial-free coverage of the 124th Tournament of Roses Parade, the HGTV Dream Home 2013 and two new series, Hawaii Life and Island Hunters. HGTV's total day resulted in more than 18 million viewers tuning in on New Year's Day, up +11% versus last year.

Ratings highlights include:

· HGTV's Prime rating on New Year's Day was the network's highest ever New Year's Day Prime rating ever among HHs, P25-54, M25-54, and M18-49.
