BRAVO BREAKS RATINGS RECORDS WITH BEST FEBRUARY IN NETWORK HISTORY IN ALL KEY MEASURES

'PROJECT RUNWAY' LEADS THE WAY, DELIVERING RECORD-SETTING NUMBERS IN WEDNESDAY PRIME TOPPING 2 MILLION VIEWERS

New York - March 1, 2005 - Viewers are answering the call to 'Watch What Happens' on Bravo as the network reaches several ratings milestones in February. Led by one of the most talked about series on television, 'Project Runway,' plus additional originals and blockbuster films, Bravo's audience increased in all key demos compared to last February 2004 ( +31% in P18-49; +18% in P25-54; and +22% in total viewers), while also attracting the youngest audience to date with a 41.5 median age in primetime (down 4.1 years from last February). February also delivered Bravo's best Wednesday and Saturday prime averages in key demos (P18-49/P25-54) in Bravo's history. Also of note, in the network's history, February 2005 primetime is the 6th highest rated month in P18-49 viewer totals, 7th highest rated for P25-54 viewers and 5th highest rated in total viewers for Bravo in primetime (8PM-11PM), according to in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

"Bravo's February ratings performance reflects some amazing achievements by the network that loves great movies and strives to produce the most buzz-worthy originals," said Lauren Zalaznick, Bravo President. "It also shows that people are quite literally tuning in to Bravo to 'watch what happens,' resulting in the channel's best February ever and the youngest month ever."
