STAMFORD, Conn., Jan 21, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- World Wrestling
Entertainment(TM) said today that it is excited with UPN's decision to exercise
its option to renew WWE(R) SmackDown!(TM) for two more years, keeping the
program on UPN at least through September 2006.

Dawn Ostroff, President, Entertainment, UPN, made the announcement during the
Television Critics Association press tour this past Sunday.

"UPN's renewal of WWE SmackDown! for two more years is great news for us and all
WWE fans," said Linda McMahon, CEO of WWE. "We are delighted to continue to be
part of the UPN family."

Since its debut on UPN on August 26, 1999, WWE SmackDown! consistently has been
the network's most successful program and a magnet for male teens on Thursday
nights. WWE SmackDown! continues to be UPN's highest rated show among total
viewers and across virtually all key adult and male demographics. With an
original SmackDown! 52 weeks a year, UPN has consistently ranked as the number
one network on Thursday among male teens, and a solid third among persons 12-34
and young men, behind only CBS and NBC.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
