Nat Geo WILD's "The Incredible Dr. Pol" Delivers Record Ratings For The Network In All Key Demos On Saturday, Jan. 18

With a 1.0 HH Rating and 0.6 P25-54 Rating, the Favorite House-Call-Making Veterinarian Sets All-Time High for the Network

WASHINGTON, Jan. 21, 2014 -- Nat Geo WILD's No. 1 series The Incredible Dr. Pol breaks network records again, hitting a 1.0 HH rating (597,000 HH delivery) and 0.6 P25-54 rating (357,000 P25-54 delivery) on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 9 p.m. ET - the highest rating in Nat Geo WILD's history in all key demos (HH, P25-54, W25-54, M25-54, P18-49 and P2+).

In addition to the 357,000 P25-54, the episode, The Incredible Dr. Pol: The Bull Pen, delivered 858,000 total viewers P2+.

"Dr. Pol's appeal crosses all demographic boundaries and is clearly becoming must-see family television on Saturday nights," said Geoff Daniels, general manager and EVP of Nat Geo WILD. "We could not be more thrilled with his continued success, and I can truly say the best is yet to come this season."

Currently in its fifth season, the series began 2014 with a marathon on New Year's Day, delivering the network's most-watched Wednesday night with 476,000 total viewers P2+. The season premiere on Saturday, Jan. 4 (0.3 P25-54, with 697,000 total viewers P2+), also propelled the network to its highest-rated Saturday in five months before this weekend's record ratings.

About The Incredible Dr. Pol

You would think that after more than 30 years of practicing veterinary medicine, raising three kids, maintaining a bustling practice and eating all the farm-fresh steak he can get, this senior would slow down. Nope, not Dr. Pol! He's a rare breed that thrives on helping all creatures great and small. And lucky for us, he's still going strong with his down-and-dirty approach to veterinary medicine. Having serviced thousands of patients since opening his now-thriving practice in 1981, Dr. Pol is the definition of passionate. His day isn't complete unless he's checked a cow for pregnancy or helped a goat with pneumonia. Once again we join the good doctor as he travels around the Michigan countryside, making house calls to a variety of farm animals. Regardless of their size or condition, if they are kicking or biting, Dr. Pol is the man with the goods to heal.

The Incredible Dr. Pol continues on Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Nat Geo WILD.
