A&E NETWORK'S GROUNDBREAKING SERIES "LIVE PD" HITS RATINGS HIGH WITH 2.1 MILLION TOTAL VIEWERS

A&E Network Was the #1 Network On Television Saturday with Adults 18-49

Milestone Follows Triple-Digit Ratings Growth Since October 2016 And Additional 100 Episode Order

New York, NY - July 18, 2017 - A&E Network's hit original documentary series "Live PD" reached a new ratings high on Saturday, July 15, with 2.1 million total viewers and just over 1.0 million viewers in the key Adults 25-54 demo and 871,000 with Adults 18-49, according to Nielsen Media Research. As a result, A&E Network was the #1 network on all of television Saturday with Adults 18-49 and the #1 cable network in Adults 25-54. The ratings milestone follows a 152% ratings growth pattern in total viewers since "Live PD" launched in October 2016 and the fourth consecutive month of growth for A&E in June among total viewers. The network is currently on pace for its fifth consecutive month of growth in July.

"Live PD" is the top unscripted crime series on cable and ranks #1 among original cable programs on Friday and Saturday night with adults 25-54.* Last week, A&E Network ordered 100 additional three-hour live episodes, extending the series run into 2018 and total episodes to 142. New episodes will air every Friday and Saturday night at 9pm ET/PT throughout the summer.

Hosted by Dan Abrams with analysis from Tom Morris Jr., "Live PD" showcases the policing of America, following diverse police departments from across the country in real time as they patrol their communities. Using dash cams along with fixed rig and handheld cameras, the series captures the work of a varied mix of urban and rural police forces on a typical Friday and Saturday night. Abrams and Morris guide viewers through the night giving insight to what audiences are seeing in real time, bouncing between the featured police departments and offering an inside look at each live episode. "Live PD" also features law enforcement officers from the series who appear in-studio as guest analysts to provide additional commentary.

Abrams brings over 20 years of reporting and anchoring to the table and currently serves as the Chief Legal Analyst for ABC News. Morris is a former correspondent for the long-running series, "America's Most Wanted." He previously worked in law enforcement as a Special Police Officer in Washington, DC, and in the federal sector as Diplomatic Security for the US State Department and a declassification analyst for the Navy Department.

"Live PD" is produced for A&E by Big Fish Entertainment. Executive producers for Big Fish Entertainment are Dan Cesareo, David Doss, George McTeague, Kara Kurcz and John Zito.
