"THE STRAIN" DELIVERS EYE-CATCHING PREMIERE RATINGS

The Strain Series Premiere and Encore Runs Combined to Deliver 8 Million Total Viewers With 4.7 Million Total Viewers for Its Initial Airing at 10 PM Sunday Night

Ranks as the #1 Cable Series Premiere in Adults 18-49 in 2014 (Live+3)

FX Projects the Total Audience Delivery Will Pass 10 Million Viewers and It Will Rank as the #1 Drama Series Premiere Ever for FX Inclusive of Live+7

LOS ANGELES, July 18, 2014 - Television viewers have been infected by The Strain, FX's newest critically-acclaimed drama series from Guillermo del Toro, Carlton Cuse and Chuck Hogan and starring Corey Stoll.

So far this week, the series premiere and its encore telecasts of The Strain have combined to deliver an impressive audience of 8 million Total Viewers and 4.2 million Adults 18-49 (most current and non-inclusive of one additional telecast and Live+3 on one episode). The network projects that, inclusive of Live+7 data, VOD, digital and electronic purchases, the series premiere of The Strain will deliver over 10 million Total Viewers.

The first airing of the series premiere episode (7/13/14, 10:00-11:40 PM) posted 4.73 million Total Viewers and 2.43 million Adults 18-49, making it cable's number-one ranked series premiere in delivery of Adults 18-49 in 2014 (Live+3 basis). With Live+7 delivery, FX projects that The Strain will rank as the #1-rated drama series premiere, ahead of The Americans.

John Landgraf, CEO, FX Networks and FX Productions, "For a show to come out of the gate like this in the most crowded environment in TV history is just amazing. It's always gratifying when a show comes together from a creative, production and marketing standpoint. Working with Guillermo and Carlton to bring the unique vision of Guillermo and Chuck's books to the screen has been a thrill."

Episode 2 of The Strain, "The Box," airs this Sunday, July 20 at 10:00 pm e/p. The four survivors begin manifesting strange symptoms, but Eph (Corey Stoll) and Nora's (Mia Maestro) attempt to quarantine them is thwarted as the disinformation campaign begins. Meanwhile, in jail, Setrakian (David Bradley) receives a surprise visit from an old - a very old - acquaintance. (Written by David Weddle & Bradley Thompson; directed by David Semel)

The Strain is a high concept thriller that tells the story of "Dr. Ephraim Goodweather," the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.

The Strain stars Corey Stoll, David Bradley, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Richard Sammel, Jonathan Hyde, Miguel Gomez, Natalie Brown, Ben Hyland, and Jack Kesy. Co-Creators, Executive Producers and Writers Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan co-wrote the pilot script for The Strain, which was directed by del Toro. Emmy(R) Award winning Writer and Producer Carlton Cuse serves as Executive Producer/Showrunner and Writer. Gary Ungar also serves as Executive Producer. The series is produced by FX Productions.
