NEW YORK, NY - December 19, 2017 - For the twelfth consecutive year, USA Network will end 2017 as the #1 most-watched ad-supported cable entertainment network - the longest streak in television history.

USA's 2017 success was driven by a powerful mix of new and returning series, including THE SINNER, the #1 new cable series of the year; CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST, the year's #1 half hour cable series; perennial ratings juggernauts WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW and WWE SMACKDOWN LIVE; and original dramas COLONY, MR. ROBOT, QUEEN OF THE SOUTH, SHOOTER and SUITS - all of which ranked #1 in their time period among key demos.*

2017 HIGHLIGHTS:

THE SINNER is the #1 new cable series of the year among P18-49, P25-54, P18-34 and P2+. Throughout its run, the series ranked as Wednesday's #1 primetime drama in all of television (broadcast and cable) for P18-49, P25-54, P18-34, W18-49, W25-54, W18-34 and W2+. Recently nominated for two Golden Globes(R) and two Critics Choice(R) awards, the acclaimed series is also 2017's #1 new cable drama on STB VOD.**

Driven by WWE MONDAY NIGHT RAW and WWE SMACKDOWN LIVE, USA Network is the #1 cable entertainment network on Mondays and Tuesdays (P18-49, P25-54, P2+, M18-49, M25-54, M18-34, M2+).

USA's stable of original dramas, including COLONY, MR. ROBOT, QUEEN OF THE SOUTH, SHOOTER, THE SINNER and SUITS, all ranked as the #1 cable drama in their time period during their premiere run.***

Powerhouse unscripted series CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST is the most-watched half-hour series of the year among both P2+ and W2+ in ad supported cable -- and the #1 cable entertainment series in STB VOD.

USA is the year's #1 cable entertainment network for social engagements (3.3 billion total), more than double its nearest competitor. Additionally, 2017 was USA digital's best year since 2010 for video streams (web and app).****

USA's original series garnered significant acclaim and accolades in 2017, including four Emmy(R) nominations, three Golden Globe(R) nominations including Best Television Limited Series (for THE SINNER), and three Critics' Choice(R) nominations.
