But that argument really doesn't hold true, in the sense that the film they aired last year did better and had the same problem (attracting an audience during Thanksgiving weekend). This is SCI FI's flagship program. It SHOULD be doing better, and it was heavily promoted. Don't forget that the advertising campaign included the webisodes. Though the producers/writers have stated the purpose of the film was to flesh out background stories, and that may certainly be true, the sole reason SCI FI greenlit it was because they felt the project could attract more viewers to the network, not necessarily to the series. And in that respect, they failed. Razor was off by 14% year-to-year (last year's Saturday film on the comparable day drew a 1.4).
