Warehouse-13-Syfy

I'd already posted Warehouse 13's numbers for last night, but this was to good to pass up on...

SYFY'S SUMMER SENSATION Warehouse 13 GAINS MOMENTUM AS IT HEADS TOWARD NEXT WEEK'S SEASON FINALE

Wins Tuesday 9PM Time Slot Versus All Ad-Supported Cable Networks

Crushes CW's Melrose Place Head-to-Head By More Than One Million Total Viewers

New York, NY September 16, 2009 With just one week left in its record-breaking freshman season, Syfy's summer sensation Warehouse 13, against stiff broadcast competition, once again captured its 9PM (ET/PT) time period among Adults 25-54 versus all ad-supported cable networks on Tuesday, September 15. Warehouse 13 is the most-watched series ever on Syfy.

Gathering momentum toward the September 22 season finale, the smash hit jumped 29% among Adults 18-49 and 17% in Adults 25-54 versus last week's performance.

In the 9PM slot, the episode entitled "Nevermore" featuring Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica) as Myka's father, Warehouse 13 bested CW's Melrose Place by more than one million total viewers.

Overall, Warehouse 13 delivered a 2.2 Household rating and just under 3 million total viewers (2.93 million) along with 1.6 million Adults 25-54 and 1.3 million Adults 18-49.

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.

The series is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. It is executive produced by Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) who also serves as showrunner. David Simkins (Dresden Files) is executive producer; and Stephen Surjik (Monk, Burn Notice) is producer/director of the series.

UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS was established to create a sustainable pipeline of quality content and derive the greatest value from it across multiple platforms. The studio will be an industry leader in unique and innovative programming for USA and Syfy, and all cable networks.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in 95 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
