BOO! DESTINATION AMERICA SCARES UP VIEWERS WITH MONSTER RECORD RATINGS - BEST WEEK EVER IN NETWORK HISTORY

(Silver Spring, MD) - This past week (3/31/14 - 4/6/14), Destination America tied for its Best Week Ever in Prime among HH delivery (190k), driven especially by the weekend's performance (Friday-Sunday), filled with the frightening, season-two premiere of MOUNTAIN MONSTERS and the ingenious backyard duo in HILLBILLY BLOOD's season-three finale. Friday also marked the network's best Friday night ever in key demos among P/M25-54/18-49 for HH and P2+ delivery.

The season-three finale of HILLBILLY BLOOD on Saturday, April 5 at 9/8c finished as the series' highest rated season yet.

By creating "hillbilly vodka" from local potatoes and heaters out of cow pies, two of HILLBILLY BLOOD's episode premieres from the third season ranked as Destination America's top-10 telecasts ever among M25-54.

The season-two premiere of Destination America's hit series MOUNTAIN MONSTERS produced stellar ratings for the network on Friday night at 10/9c, earning its best telecast ever among HH rating and delivery (0.81/473k) and second best among P2+ (672k) delivery. The premiere of MOUNTAIN MONSTERS beat out competitors including H2, TNT, MTV, Tru, NGC, TRV and CMT for delivery of M25-54 in its timeslot and outperformed Destination America's previous 6-week time period rating average by triple-digit increases in key demos: 243% in M18-49, 242% in M25-54, 226% in P2+, 224% in P18-49, 213% in HHs, and 185% in P25-54.
