TBS has been undergoing a brand transformation and programming evolution that began last year with the launch of seven high-quality, distinctive marquee originals with a 100% renewal rate. In 2018 the powerhouse cable brand will continue to build on that extraordinary success with new seasons of its returning hit shows and the launches of several highly anticipated new series.  Additionally, TBS and TNT experienced their best year ever on VOD, scoring more than 185M combined transactions, while the networks’ apps also blew past their yearly download goals with latest tally of nearly 7M downloads in 2017 alone.

After an aggressive start to its transformation three years ago, TBS has established itself as television’s #1 comedy network with 5 of the top 20 cable comedies and 3 of the top 3 new scripted comedies on cable. Last fall TBS continued its impressive streak with the network's launch into unscripted with the classic game show reboot Snoop Dogg Presents The Joker's Wild, and the celebrity-led rap battle competition Drop the Mic, both of which became the top two new unscripted cable comedies in 2017 (#2 and #3, respectively). The winning combination of scripted and unscripted programming drew a combined 18.5 million new viewers to the network. TBS ranks as one of cable's Top 3 networks in primetime with adults 18-34 and 18-49 and is already well positioned to repeat its chart-topping victory from last year. Additionally, TBS also established itself as one cable's Top 10 networks in social media engagement, drawing more than 32 million fans and 313 million engagements from a total of 1.5 billion post impressions.
