The fine folks at the SyFy Network (I really can’t type that without laughing because I keep thinking Sifee) are trumpeting the ratings numbers for the series finale.
Battlestar Galactica’s epic series finale, airing from 9-11pm on Friday, March 20, added to its phenomenal ratings with the inclusion of Live + 7 DVR data. Overall, the episode averaged a 2.2 Household rating, 3.1 million total viewers, 2.1 millon Adults 25-54 and 2 million Adults 18-49. This was the best performance for Battlestar Galactica in total viewers, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-49 since the February 4, 2005 episode.In addition, among all SCI FI original series telecasts in the network’s 16 year history, this is the #5 most-watched original series performance in Adults 25-54 and the best performance for any original series on this measure since 2005, and is the #4 most-watched telecast in Adults 18-49. A limited-edition, uncut version of the highly-anticipated pilot of Caprica, the new drama series from the producers of Battlestar Galactica, will premiere on DVD from Universal Home Entertainment on Tuesday, April 21, 2009.
I’m not sure what SyFy (Lol) gains from releasing the DVD before Caprica airs on the channel. Ah, I guess this is truly it, the final Battlestar Galactica Post and it’s about the ratings. I can’t imagine there’s much more news about the show other than Caprica – which I’m counting as a totally different thing. But then again, I am scheduled to speak with David Eick sometime in the next few days. Anyhoo
