 “MANSWERS: THE BEST OF SEASON ONE”
HITS STORES ON TUESDAY, JULY 15

NEW YORK, July 15, 2008 – In its first season, Spike TV’s breakout hit “MANswers” boldly set out to find the answers to the questions no man dared to ask out loud. Released by Spike TV Home Entertainment and Paramount Home Entertainment, “MANswers: The Best of Season One” DVD showcases the top 25 moments from its debut season and arrives in stores nationwide on Tuesday, July 15.

“MANswers” is trivia for men that delivers real answers to the burning questions guys have always contemplated.  The series features re-enactments, expert one-on-ones and man-on-the-street interviews to educate Spike viewers on the taboo topics in terms only guys can relate to.  The barrage of guy-oriented trivia is presented in a fast-paced, irreverent manner and is fodder for settling barroom bets and water-cooler arguments.

The first season of “MANswers” was a ratings juggernaut, finishing with an average audience of 1.1 million viewers and ranking #2 with Men 25-34 and #3 with Men 18-34 in its 11:00pm timeslot on Wednesdays (airing from Sept-November).   The second season of “MANswers” is set to premiere on Wednesday, September 17 at 11p.m. ET/PT.

Miller, executive producer.  Sharon Levy, Tim Duffy, and Wayne Sampson are executives in charge of production for Spike TV.
