Atlantis finale scores 1.5 rating
Monday - January 12, 2009
Ratings for the final season of Stargate Atlantis stormed back on Friday night, with “Enemy At the Gate” earning a 1.5 average household rating (Live + Same Day) for the SCI FI Channel, the network is reporting. This is up three-tenths of a point (25 percent) from the December 12 episode (“Identity”).
Ratings for the previous week, January 2′s “Vegas,” are not yet available, though early viewership signs indicate a slight lift over the 1.2 earned by “Identity.”
SCI FI reports that 2.02 million viewers watched the series finale — 973,000 adults in the 18 to 49 demographic, and 1.12 million age 25 to 54. It’s a season-high in key demographic measures, and ties “The Lost Tribe” for the highest rounded-off ratings number.
The network calls it the best performance for an episode of Atlantis since the Season Four finale in March.
Atlantis‘s lead-out show, Sanctuary, drew 2 million viewers and earned a 1.6 rating for its first season finale — its best performance since the series premiered in October.
SCI FI also reports that with time-shifted viewership accounted for (Live + 7 Days figures), Stargate Atlantis averaged a 1.6 rating and 2.1 million viewers for its final season. Sanctuary averaged a 1.8, including its big draw for the series premiere.
