National Networks AOCF increased 7.8% and International and Other AOCF improved $1 million versus the prior year period. Operating income was $247 million, an increase of 151.7% or $149 million versus the prior year period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, net revenues increased $107 million, or 16.4%, to $761 million, AOCF increased $36 million, or 14.1%, to $288 million, and operating income increased $179 million, or 91.9%, to $375 million.
