Alright all you Stargate Universe bashers (I caught up yesterday, it's growing on me...kinda) and alienated Stargate Atlantis fans who are rooting for Stargate Universe to fail: it's doing just as well as SGA did last year (actually better). Though this episode was down, it was the same as the Live+SD ratings for the series finale of SGA in January.
Here's last week's top ten (in terms of viewers) shows for Syfy:
|Rank||Shows||NET||DAY||Time||Viewers Live+SD (000)|
|9||FLU BIRD HORROR||SYFY||Sat||05:00P-07:00P||1,552|
I know what you're thinking as you slap your foreheads: "I can't believe I missed "Flu Bird Horror" and "Timber Falls!"
What does the future hold for SGU? Time will tell.
One thing we don't have to guess at is this: Ghost Hunters isn't going anywhere. It was the only show on Syfy to rank in the top 50 of ad-supported cable shows with adults 18-49 last week. It was #15 out of all ad-supported cable shows with 1.813 million (for the Wednesday 9pm episode on 10/21). It's not as popular with adults 18-34, but it still made the top 50 (again the only Syfy show to do so) at #33 with 813,000 adults 18-34.
But Stargate Universe DID rank with Adults 25-54
It was #41 with 1.224 million adults 25-54. That was still behind the 9pm Ghost Hunters (#16, 1.896 million), Destination Truth (#32, 1.267 million) and even the 8pm Ghost Hunters (#39, 1.241 million).
Sanctuary did not rank in any of the top 50 age demographic rankings we saw.
