WARNER BROS. DISCOVERY CLAIMED FIVE NIGHTS OF MORE THAN A 50 PERCENT SHARE OF PRIMETIME CABLE VIEWING AMONG ADULTS DURING FIRST QUARTER

New York [April 8, 2024] Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) delivered five nights of more than a 50 percent share of primetime cable viewing among Adults 18-49 across ad-supported cable during the first quarter of 2024. Ratings drivers included TNT Sports' coverage of the 2024 NCAA Men's Tournament in March as well as Investigation Discovery's Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV, Food Network's Tournament of Champions and Wildcard Kitchen and Adult Swim's Ninja Kamui. During the quarter, WBD's popular lifestyle, entertainment, sports and news brands - including CNN, Discovery, Food Network, HGTV, Investigation Discovery, TBS, TNT, TLC, Adult Swim and OWN - also outperformed competitors with ten nights of more than a 40 percent share of primetime cable viewing among Adults.

Attracting more than 142 million total viewers on average each month, WBD's US Networks accounted for viewing by nearly one-third of Adults who watched cable during prime. Passionate viewers kept five of the coveted brands - TBS, TNT, TLC, Food Network, and HGTV - among the top 10 of ad-supported cable networks, with TBS also ranking as the #1 cable entertainment network in total day and prime among Adults. Successful unscripted freshman series in Q1 included: Quiet on Set: The Dark Side of Kids TV (#3, ID), Wildcard Kitchen (#6, Food Network), Hustlers Gamblers Crooks (#8, Discovery), Love & Translation (#9, TLC) and Stupid Pet Tricks (#10, TBS).

"Our true crime series like Quiet on Set and The Curious Case of Natalia Grace: Natalia Speaks have worked well across platforms, and we've seen a similar performance with our adult animation titles like Ninja Kamui," said Kathleen Finch, Chairman and CEO, US Networks, Warner Bros. Discovery. "These big hits, along with the performance of our freshman series and live premium sports offerings, laid the groundwork for us to attract a significant share of the available nightly cable audience this quarter."
