The rating matches “Doppelganger,” which aired two weeks earlier, as the series’ lowest rated episode to date.
Stargate Atlantis was once again the top-rated original drama on SCI FI Channel for the week. ECW wrestling earned a 1.6 rating, and the special live Halloween edition of Ghost Hunters turned in an impressive 2.1.
A large portion of Atlantis‘s viewership now watches the show time-shifted using TiVo and other digital video recording services, most which is not accounted for in the “Live + Same Day” rating from Nielsen Media Research. The show reportedly recovered to ratings in the 1.2 to 1.4 range when the full week of DVR viewing is factored in, although those numbers have not been published by SCI FI.
The show takes a break for Thanksgiving this week, but don’t miss “Miller’s Crossing,” another brand new episode of Stargate Atlantis, November 30 at 10 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on SCI FI Channel!
