New York, NY – August 12, 2009 – Syfy’s hit dramedy series Warehouse 13 topped the cable competition during Tuesday prime on August 11, reigning #1 with 1.64 million Adults 25-54. The series far out-paced such established hits as FX’s Rescue Me (by 111%) and TNT’s Saving Grace (by 16%), as well as TNT’s first-year series Hawthorne (by 9%).
Drawing 3.35 million total viewers overall in its 9-10PM (ET/PT) time period, the series delivered more Adults 18-34, Adults 25-54 and Men 18-49 viewers than ABC. Warehouse 13 also garnered more Men 25-54 viewers than both ABC and Fox.
Warehouse 13 follows two Secret Service agents who find themselves abruptly transferred to a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and supernatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him to control the warehouse itself.
