TLC RINGS IN RECORD RATINGS FOR 2018; A TOP THREE CABLE NETWORK FOR WOMEN

--Network on Track for Best Ratings in 15 Years--

--#1 with Younger Women on Sunday Nights with Hit Franchise 90 Day Fiancé Record Performance--

(Silver Spring, MD) - TLC is celebrating the holiday season with its highest ratings in 15 years and closing out 2018 as the #3 ad-supported cable network in Prime among W25-54. In addition, the network dominated on Sundays and Wednesday nights. Sunday nights delivered the strongest numbers ever among P/W25-54 and W18-49 thanks to the hit franchise 90 Day Fiancé; and Wednesday ratings were the highest ever among W25-54 driven by veteran series 600-lb Life and fan-favorite freshman series Dr. Pimple Popper.

"2018 was a banner year for TLC," said president and general manager Howard Lee. "From reviving beloved series Trading Spaces, expanding our wildly popular 90 Day franchise and introducing viewers to new stories of transformation with Dr. Pimple Popper, our focus is always on nourishing the superfan. We are laser-focused on sharing authentic, compelling stories viewers can't find anywhere else, giving our audience more of what they want while providing an escape from the chaos of their everyday lives."

Digital also experienced record growth in 2018. TLC GO had 101.7M streams, up +88% vs. 2017, making it its best year on GO yet. In addition, the 90 Day Fiancé franchise saw 17 consecutive weeks of US Twitter trending during Happily Ever After S3, Before the 90 Days S2, and 90 Day Fiancé S6.
