Though they don't pound you over the head with the comparisons to Live+SD ratings in the release, this effectively doubles the Live+SD 18-49 rating for that episode from  a 0.4 to a 0.8. Sorry about that, March 5 was the rare week where Caprica had a .5 rating, so its growth was only from .5 to .8, though that's still 60% growth.
