Irrelevant to BSG's fate but a good sign for Caprica:
Overall, the January 16 episode, the first of the series' highly-anticipated final installment, averaged a 2.0 HH rating, 1.8 million Adults 18-49 (up +38% over the Live +Same Day ratings), 1.9 million Adults 25-54 (+35%), and 2.8 million total viewers (+32%). This was the best performance for Battlestar Galactica in total viewers since the season 2 premiere in July 2005.
Sorry..not impressed...Yeah, I know viewing habits are different...but 2 million? This show just is not seen beyond the genre fans it has. Heck, almost the same amount of people watch GENERAL HOSPITAL every day....and compared to TNG, and even Deep Space Nine's ratings (both sydicated) BSG isn't even in the same ball park....
And one must ask why are nuBSG's numbers down compared to its own highs from seasons one and two??? Erosion...pure and simple.
