To me the ratings on this show really are a small piece of the puzzle. Scifi really makes up for the expense of the show on its DVD and iTunes sales. It is also the only anchor that Scifi has at the moment. That being said the fact that it was placed in a new time slot competing against a new fall
lineup after a lonnnngggg wait I think that the ratings seem respectable. I also think that the next two episodes are more important than the premiere. If the rating stays at around 1.8 like last season it should be fine.
