Not if the ratings fall to the point where Sci-Fi isn't making money anymore.

Ratings don't really matter for a show like BSG anyway, since it makes huge money in DVD sales.
As long as Universal TV Production is willing to pony up the difference between what Skiffy makes from ads at their low ratings, and the actual production costs for the show...

^ Exactly. If you want to see Season 4.5 ratings will have to go up more than likely. Didn't Moore say in an interview that Sci-Fi hasn't confirmed if they'll produce season 4.5 because of the strike?
I think they've already signed up so they'll be forced to back it no matter how bad the ratings get. They could always back a cheap-o version of BSG, where the cylons are animated on an old 386 computer in some studio in Cambodia and cast members are replaced by chris crocker & ted mcginley

Those ratings are gritty and realistic.

Sackhoff admits that despite her boundless confidence and enthusiasm, the low ratings for "Galactica" are a "bummer" and part of the reason she accepted a role on the short-lived "Bionic Woman" series, which made her realize she should appreciate the richness and complexity of Starbuck.

Perhaps if they had quit playing all the stupid games and taking forever to release the Season 3 DVDS and waiting almost a year before showing the show again then perhaps there would have been more interest in it.

I love BSG, but even my interest waned during the hiatus. I'm waiting for them to screw us over with the final 10 episodes. I'm sure they wont air until Fall 2009.

What do they expect? I'm a hardcore fan and even I lost interest in the year long wait. It's all their doing. This show could be on NBC, as big or bigger a hit than Heroes.

The show is a money-maker for Sci-Fi, and that is what determines whether a show stays on the air; ratings are incidental to that because the determine the ad prices.
Actually I read the show was operating at a loss with each episode and costing skiffy money, if people aren't watching the advert slots will make less. That's why they tried to squeeze this season out for another two years. Except this time 'round it might get beat by re-runs of Spongebob and StarTrek Enterprise.

^ Rock bottom will be if Sarah Jane gets more viewers than BSG.

Damn, I thought the new ratings were out, is there any older thread that is still active?

MoO has been resurrecting all of his "nuBSG SUX!!!" threads since the Season 4 premiere... I think he just can't stand the fact that people are enjoying it.

Considering the ratings dropped as low as 1.2, 1.8 isn't that bad. BSG deserves to have higher ratings but like other serial shows, it's really too hard a show to get into unless you're caught up with everything.

Re: Ratings are in !

Com'on people...this is stupid. Do you really think Sci-Fi is going to cancel this series after the long advertising campaign and this being the final season anyway? They'll let it play out....and yes, for the entire 20-episode order. They'd have a riot on their hands from fans if they'd cancel it before the last half of the season. If you thought Farscape was bad, you haven't seen nothing yet.

Besides, isn't there several other venues/outlets now where you can get access to the episodes? So I'm just wondering how relative these ratings are anymore. Not to mention DVR time-shifted viewing.

Considering they've already started shooting the back nine, I would bet a coke that they're going to go all the way. They can't not, at this point.
