The Controversial TV Series - Which Exposes the Unfaithful and Confronts

Them On Camera - Makes Its Los Angeles Debut This Saturday!



Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Western International Syndication

    LOS ANGELES, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles will finally get a peek
 at the new show-all reality series that has been heating up the tube in other
 major cities around the country.
     Starting this weekend, "Cheaters" will air Saturday nights at midnight on
 KCAL (Channel 9).
     Since debuting in the U.S. last October, the syndicated series has
 continued to gain markets and will be seen in 80% of the country by September
 2001.  Among them, the show ranked #1 in its time period during the February
 Sweeps among Adults 18-34, 18-49, and 25-54 in Cincinnati (WXIX), San Antonio
 (KMOL), and Corpus Christi (KIII).  "Cheaters" also drew phenomenal ratings in
 such markets as New Orleans -- where it ranked #1 on WDSU on Saturdays at
 midnight, producing a 6.2/15 for households and a 7/31 for Adults 18-34 -- and
 Cincinnati with a 6.2/22 for Men 25-54, airing at 7 pm Saturdays.*
     "Cheaters" acts on requests from victims who suspect their partner of
 cheating.  The show retains licensed private investigators who employ the
 latest in professional surveillance techniques and equipment, including hidden
 video cameras and microphones.  Armed with the incriminating evidence, host
 Tommy Grand, along with the victim, camera crew and bodyguards, embark on the
 "bust," confronting the infidel on camera and capturing every moment of the
 emotionally-charged situation as it unfolds.
     "'Cheaters' is investigative television -- a documentary in which viewers
 have found entertainment value," says Bobby Goldstein, a former attorney who
 created and executive produces the series.  "The program not only exposes the
 cheaters, it also brings to light the consequences of infidelity, driving home
 some of the terrible imagery of the by-products of cheating.  In that sense,
 we are actually providing a public service and we are certain potential
 cheaters will think twice after viewing the program."
     "Cheaters" is produced by Goldstein/Habeeb Entertainment, Inc., and
 distributed in the U.S. by Western International Syndication.  Tommy Grand
 serves as the host.  The executive producers are Bobby Goldstein, Tommy Grand,
 and John McCalmont.  The series debuted in the U.S. on October 2, 2000.
