Battlestar Galatica's ratings were down again versus the previous week's Friday @10pm airing, but only by 60,000 viewers. Based on fan reaction to this past Friday's episode I doubt we'll see any significant bleeding next week. The fans seemed to have loved the episode.

I'll be hanging on for sure at least one more week now that Comcast in San Francisco has added SciFi HD to the high definition lineup (channel 736), and hopefully I won't experience any problems with the HD telecast. Mild spoilers below the data table.

Date Episode HH Rating/Share Viewers (millions) 18-49 Rating/Share
04/04/2008 He That Believeth in Me 1.3/2 2.138 1.1/3
04/11/2008 Six of One 1.1/2 1.801 0.9/3
04/18/2008 The Ties That Bind 1.1/2 1.741 0.8/3

I think I'm just worn out by last year and want them to just get to Earth already. Sure, the Cylons are now immersed in a great civil war, sure they're now as human as we as the humans (killing, really killing their own). But as sure as I'm sitting here this ends with humans and Cylons coexisting peacefully on planet Earth.

I'm pretty sure I'm not a Cylon, but there's a song playing in my head anyway: "Cylon and Human" to the tune of Ebony and Ivory.

In the meanwhile, it's very cool to see them blow stuff up -- I'm sure it will look even cooler in high def. Still a tragic waste of some perfectly good number 6 models.
