(Washington, D.C. – March 27, 2013) National Geographic Channel’s (NGC) INSIDE COMBAT RESCUE – which joins Pararescuemen or PJs on the front lines in Afghanistan – closed out its run as the channel’s highest-rated new series for the 2012-13 TV season. The series averaged P25-54 0.5 across six premiere telecasts, and earned a P25-54 0.4 for its finale this past Monday, March 25 at 10 p.m. The premiere episode, Visions of War, which kicked off on Monday, February 18, is still one of NGC’s Top 10 most watched premiere telecasts with total viewers P2+ for 2013.
INSIDE COMBAT RESCUE takes viewers inside the harrowing world of the brave airmen who put their lives on the line so, as their motto says, “that others may live.” It was the first time in history that the United States Air Force allowed cameras to follow these highly skilled airmen, with advanced medical training, to war. From heroic acts of bravery in the field to training, pranks and comradery back at base, the series offers a 360-degree view of this band of brothers.
