OWN DELIVERS HIGHEST RATED MONTH IN NETWORK HISTORY

OWN Ranks As Top 20 Ad-Supported Cable Network In August

For Three Consecutive Months, OWN is a Top 3 Cable Network for African-American Women 25-54

Los Angeles - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network scored its highest rated month in network history in primetime in August across all key demos delivering +23% growth in total viewers, +26% growth in W25-54 and +27% African American women 25-54 versus last month. OWN ranked as a Top 20 ad-supported cable network for the month in women 25-54 and for three consecutive months, OWN has ranked as a top three cable network for African-American women 25-54.
