*shrug* I'd think more people would be watching in October — with the onset of colder weather and shorter daylight hours — than in July, smack dab in the middle of summer with great weather and long, nice days.

From what I've read at various forums, a lot of people are not happy with the Iraq war parallels. Sadly, I predict there will be quite a drop next week.
Oh yea, I've seen these reactionary posts around too, nuBSG does get under peoples skin. From the first mini, this show was about the larger dramas in our world, beginning with it's own 9/11 and going on to torture, suiside bombing (remember Leoben in the first season? Cylons did it too!), betrayal, God fearing Cylons, salisious media, abortion, popular suffering, sudden attack fear, the plots are all right out of the newspapers.

If at this point people don't accept that this show is about dramatizing the war torn world around us, and pretty well I say, they should buy a clue.

... mm, just wanna say, direct lines of parallel is not what an allegory is, nor does nuBSG stick to mere metaphor. The Cylons make great fanatically religious terrorists blowing themselves to heaven one season then they are fanatical religious superpower occupiers torturing and executing. This show is reeeaaally good at this stuff, if I may say. The sub-text is all there, but it can wash off like water on a duck's back just as fast. Keep up my friends!

It was actually Doral that was a suicide bomber in "Litmus".

I agree that ratings do mean quite a bit. No question. However, I've never understood the reasoning behind pre-emptions/same week reruns not being counted. Granted, they should be limited to one rerun during the week to ward off a network taking advantage of the system, but the fact remains that the people watching-whenever they do in that initial week-are still watching.

The ratings for the rebroadcasts *do* count. Rest assured, the companies airing commercials during those rebroadcasts don't get to air those commercial for free. They have to pay for that, and the amount of $ they pay is based on the rating, just like it is for the initial broadcast. Every individual timeslot has its own rating. It's just that, by convention, they only tout the rating for the initial broadcast to the press. The ratings for rebroadcasts have in fact been mentioned in a few ratings articles run by Gateworld in the past, but in general, they don't get divulged to the public. But rest assured, the people making the decisions on which shows to run have all of the relevant data on ratings for every single showing of each episode.

However, another thing you have to account for is the fact that, by running the same episode three times, they are able to increase the total number of viewers sure, but that's also a total of three hours of their air time that could also be used for something else. So it's really not as simple as adding up the ratings for all three broadcasts, because you also have to account for how much air time you used up to achieve those ratings.

New Nielsen ratings: Ads, DVRs

There’s melancholy news for fans of Sci Fi’s “Battlestar Galactica.” The executive producers, Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, said in a statement last week that the next season will be the show’s last.

Ouch!!! I'm truly shocked that BSG was renewed at all with horrible ratings like that. But it's no wonder this is the last season, Moore and Eick knew that they'd never get a fifth after the disasterous third year.

That's a very good question. The sci-fi fans? Hmmmm.
The demographic have moved away from the traditional scifi fans while the soapopera/rickylake demographic is growing rapidly

Wait, are you saying BSG re-runs are getting 1.1s? That's not bad at all.
