America is fascinated by stars, and so is TV Guide Network. Why? Stars are fun, larger than life and a part of what is news to us all. Now the company that invented TV guidance celebrates the biggest stars in entertainment.

What makes TV Guide Network stand out in the stargazing arena? We're in 83 million homes, and our shows are produced in the heart of Hollywood. Our studios literally open onto Hollywood Boulevard and the famed Kodak Theatre. From the red carpets of the award shows to the emerging idols, we're live, behind the scenes and up close with the personalities consumers want to know. Our perspective? Fair and fun. We're here to celebrate and express the excitement of the entertainment industry.

In just five short years, we've gone from a network with a few hours of programming to one with a robust, cohesive schedule seven days a week. We're now a fully programmed entertainment network. Our signature show, "Hollywood 411," puts star power center stage each weeknight at 9 p.m. It's a full hour of entertainment news that's more spontaneous and less packaged than the other entertainment news programs. We tape late in the day—and get the stories other shows just don't have time to cover. Our hosts are Madison Michele and Chris Harrison, a face familiar from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette."

We also capture the stars of TV's biggest events. Lisa Rinna and Joey Fatone host Hollywood's biggest parties: the red carpets before the award shows. "American Idol" remains TV's biggest draw next to the Super Bowl, and we have the only official pre-show with not one, but two former Idols as hosts. Kimberly Caldwell and Justin Guarini lived the "Idol" experience and connect with current contestants.

We round out our star power with re-airings of "Jimmy Kimmel Live" each weeknight at 7 p.m.; a weekly current star biography series called "Close Up"; "Big Movie Premieres"; "The Fashion Team," where consumers learn how to get star style; and "Look-a-Like," where real people get made over to look like stars.


All programs reach people 18 to 49.
