Getting people to watch Blake's 7 in the states is going to be an uphill battle since the average Sci-Fi fan would probably see it as a Firefly rip-off (ignoring the fact that the original show has been around for decades prior).
I suspect that those who know about Firefly will largely also know about Blakes 7. Anyway, in order to survive, the show will have to rely on more than name recognition and those who know of the original show. Indeed, it'll have to attract more viewers than Firefly did.
A show on Syfy is never going to attract more viewers than Firefly did. Difference being Firefly was a Fox show.
