NEW YORK - December 15, 2016 - USA Network is on track to end 2016 as the most watched ad-supported cable entertainment network for an 11th consecutive year -- the longest streak at #1 for a cable or broadcast network in the history of Nielsen metered measurement.

In 4th Quarter 2016, USA is also on track to be up +5% vs. last year -- one of only three Top 10 networks to show year over year ratings growth among the key 18-49 demo. "We are so proud to end 2016 at #1 for the 11th straight year," said Chris McCumber, President, Entertainment Networks for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment.
