Just wondering if anyone has heard/got the overnight numbers for episode 4? It's a big one cuz it's the last episode before the go/no-go decision for series 2. Though it's being re-broadcast on USA Network is very good sign for the future, I'd just like to know the numbers.
SCI FI Friday nudges up in ratings MONDAY - JANUARY 31, 2005
The January 28 broadcast of The SCI FI Channel's new primetime line-up improved on the premiere week's ratings, with Battlestar Galactica once again leading the pack. All three original series -- including Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis -- turned in improved numbers for the night, with Atlantis posting the biggest gain.
Stargate SG-1 led off the night at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific with "Prometheus Unbound." The episode, guest starring Farscape's Claudia Black, drew 2.5 million people and earned a 2.1 average household rating, up one-tenth of a point from last week. The episode even beat a new episode of UPN's Star Trek: Enterprise in total viewers, SCI FI reported -- despite the fact that the cable channel is available in fewer U.S. homes.
Black will return for the first five episodes of Season Nine, premiering this summer on SCI FI.
Stargate Atlantis made a strong improvement over the previous week's numbers with a 2.4 average household rating -- three-tenths of a point better. The 9 p.m. broadcast of "The Defiant One" drew 2.9 million viewers, up 12 percent from the mid-season premiere.
Finally, new series Battlestar Galactica took the top prize for the second straight week at 10 p.m. "Act of Contrition" earned a 2.5 household rating, up one-tenth of a point from last week. Three million viewers tuned in for the episode, making it SCI FI's top-rated program of the week.
The strong numbers made The SCI FI Channel the number one cable channel of the night among viewers age 25 to 54 and men 25 to 54, and second among viewers 18 to 49.
More brand new episodes of all three series continue this Friday at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on SCI FI!
