Re: BSG ratings rock!
Once an endpoint for the series was decided, I stopped caring about ratings. They only matter to me when the survival/renewal of future seasons is at stake. I stopped bothering with LOST's ratings too once they announced the end-point of the series.
Indeed. At this point, ratings won't affect anything. BSG is ending. It's final episodes have been filmed and will air. Fans will get to watch the story reach its natural ending. The same is true for "Lost". The end-date has been selected. ABC isn't going to cancel it beforehand. Ratings don't really matter anymore. The only thing I care about is telling good stories.
