I had a feeling this thread would get bumped after the post I made in that "Does Season Four suck?" thread.
Anyway, BSG is now back to the same level as season 3. The new viewers who were sampling the show are gone, so it's just us hardcore dudes left.
Accoding to SyFy Portal ratings are up a bit, actually.
Not that it bloody matters.
I wouldn't count on SyFy portal for reliable rating information. The actual rating info for past seasons and this season has been posted in this thread ad nauseum. Season 3 was mainly in the 1.1-1.4 rating range and that's what season 4 is getting now.
And you are right. It doesn't matter.
