SG-1, Atlantis fall to season lows
Thursday - January 19, 2006 | by Darren Sumner
Ratings for Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis fell to season lows in their second week of new episodes, losing more than 10 percent of the previous week's viewers. SCI FI's Battlestar Galactica fared little better on January 13.
SG-1 led off the night, with "Collateral Damage" earning a 1.7 average household rating. This is down two-tenths of a point from the previous week, and took the place of September's 2-hour mid-season finale as Season Nine's lowest to date.
The show did remain steady among viewers aged 25 to 54, a key demographic for The SCI FI Channel.
In a rare occurance, Stargate Atlantis lost viewers from its lead-in show in the 9 p.m. slot. "Epiphany" earned a 1.6 rating, down four-tenths of a point -- a full 20 percent -- from the previous week's mid-season premiere.
Atlantis's previous low mark of the season was also its 2-hour September finale, which earned a 1.7. "Epiphany" is also the lowest-rated in the series' short, one and a half-year history.
Battlestar Galactica finished off the night at 10 p.m., with "Resurrection Ship, Part 2" earning a 1.9 rating. This is down two-tenths of a point from the previous week, and ties "Resistance" and "Flight of the Phoenix" for the season low.
Galactica remained SCI FI's highest-rated show of the week.
The three series earned ratings of 1.0, 0.7, and 0.6, respectively, during the late-night reruns of these episodes.
New episodes continue this Friday starting at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on SCI FI!
