Powered by Pork Butts, Brian “Pig Man” Quaca and Ted Nugent Muscle Their Way to Top 15* of All Nets with Key Male Audiences

Not all of the TV universe tuned in for twerking teens or raging chemists on Sunday night as Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor television for the American sportsman, hammed it up all evening with “Aporkalypse 2013,” which rated in the Top 15 among all cable networks and was No. 1 among mid-sized networks for M18-49 and M18-34.*

Airing Sunday, August 25 exclusively on Sportsman Channel, Aporkalypse 2013 was a marathon of wild hog stories, adventure, and eradication including episodes from “Pig Man: The Series,” hosted by Brian Quaca and featuring special guest Ted Nugent; “MeatEater with Steven Rinella,” “Gun It! with Benny Spies,” Tom Miranda’s “Territories Wild” and “Travelin’ Hunter with Tony Smotherman.”

Even among the twitter-verse, Sportsman Channel was the talk of the night with an eruption of twitter squealing – some tweeters declaring they were skipping music-award programs in favor of watching Sportsman’s killer outdoorsmen each attacking America’s feral pig epidemic in their own unique manner.

The series snagged the No. 1 ranking by pulling a .5 rating for M18-49 and a .4 for M18-34 8 pm to 9 pm hour among all mid-sized networks.*

“The ratings success and social popularity of Aporkalypse is   fueled by great characters, incredible stories, and lots and lots of pigs”, said Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel. “Sportsman is delivering great unscripted TV comparable with the best lifestyle networks, and on Sunday night we were happy to be ranked among the best.”
