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)
1 GHOST HUNTERS SYFY Wed 09:00P-10:00P 3,067
2 GHOST HUNTERS SYFY Wed 08:00P-09:00P 2,068
3 STARGATE UNIVERSE SYFY Fri 09:00P-10:00P 2,015
4 DESTINATION TRUTH SYFY Wed 10:00P-11:00P 2,011

9 FLU BIRD HORROR SYFY Sat 05:00P-07:00P 1,552
10 TIMBER FALLS SYFY Sat 03:00P-05:00P 1,488

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.
