Trial and Error ratings are in! yes or no, will SGU be cancelled?

Mid-term election night turned out to be no help for Stargate Universe, as viewers voted with their remotes for network and cable news coverage. “Trial and Error” drew an estimated 967,000 viewers (Live + Same Day) in its 9 p.m. time slot.
That’s a drop of 4 percent from the previous week, and SGU‘s second dip under the 1 million mark for the Tuesday night broadcast.

So fans is this the end of the show? Will it be cancelled and when? Do you think the last 10 episodes will be on DVD only? What went wrong?

Re: Trial and Error ratings are in! yes or no, will SGU be cancelled?

I am going out on a limb and fuck it...SGU will get a 3rd season because SYFY will move the back 10 to fridays and give it 2 episodes to prove itself...SGU will get closer to 1.5 million and SYFY will keep it on fridays to share the slot with Sanctuary over the course of a year.



The loss of viewers was in the older demo, I could of told SYFY that would happen on a election day/night. Simple fact SYFY should of aired SGU season 2 a few weeks earlier to allow for a break to avoid Baseball/Election. Also airing before the rest of network TV gets going allows SGU to get a foothold on Tuesday nights.

I liked the episode but not thrilled about the ship that can get into peoples minds. Just seems too far fetched to me. Though if its like Moya from Farscape then maybe.

I think if they do cancel the show at the break then they should just not air the finally 10 and stick them on DVD. That way me and many others would actually buy the Season 2 Dvd.


What would suck is they come out and cancel the show during the break. And the final 10 episodes turn out to be what we been wanting this whole time.
Trial and Error with its faults was funny and big improvement. And finally Eli gets some. Though she is a fallen Angel(Supernatural fans) it was nice to see Eli become a man.

Though honestly i was watching the coverage on FoxNews and watched the 11pm showing of SGU.

I live in Taxachusetts, so I needed a diversion from the train wreck when the polls closed at 9. The ep was pretty good.

If it's not dead yet, it's certainly on life support.

8 reasons you should watch Stargate Universe tonight and beyond!

http://blastr.com/2010/11/7-reasons-...uld-watc-1.php


really good read, hence why the back 10 might be really good.

"That takes us to the big part one of our midseason two-parter called 'Resurgence,' where we find something off the path, and now that we have control of the Destiny for the first time we explore something that we soon find out we shouldn't have. And we end up basically caught in a war that has been going on between two races"

Nope. Only a random selection.

Trial and Error:
Total U.S. HH Rtg: 0.8
Total U.S. A18-49 Rtg: 0.4
Total Viewers: 0.967



SGU got trounced more than House Democrats. I guess some of last week's SGU viewers were watching the election results instead:

Yes i stoled that line but its a good one lol. Atleast it seems the ratings are settleing down a bit.

They can't cancel Stargate as well as Law and Order in the same year.

It's just mean.

It's kind of reassuring in some ways that people are more interested in election results.

That depends on how you watch. If you're watching as it airs, it only counts in the ratings if you have a Nielsen box. If, however, you record the show with a DVR, make sure to watch within two days after the episode airs in order for it to receive some consideration.
