NEW YORK – June 27, 2012 – During second quarter (April-June), Syfy delivered its most watched second quarter among total viewers and Adults 18-34 in four years. The channel also posted its highest rated 2Q in Adults 18-49 since 2009.

 

Compared to 2Q ’11, Syfy rose 7% among Adults 18-49, 4% among Adults 25-54 and 4% in total viewers, while continuing its year-long growth among younger viewers, soaring 18% in Adults 18-34 and 18% in Women 18-34.

 

Syfy also saw its best June since 2008 among total viewers and Adults 18-34, while averaging the most Adults 18-49 since 2009.

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 more than 98 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)

    Wait, wasn’t that when they canceled Stargate Atlantis??????
    Still bitter.

  • USAmerica1st

    No, @Observer, maybe it was when they cancelled Caprica. Also bitter.

  • The End

    @Observer

    Stargate Atlantis wasn’t cancelled, MGM wanted to produce movies. Mutually ended by both parties.

    Some conspiracy theorists think that SGA was ended for SGU, except no concrete answer to that has come from MGM or Syfy. Dun..dun..dunnnnnnnnnn.

    I would hope Syfy would be doing better because regardless of whether they’re running mostly reality shows or not they’re running a LOT more shows than they used to run in the second quarter (even if the shows used to be scripted). In other words, more programming for probably the same amount of money should add up to more viewers and more profit although here are the Primetime Average and 18-49 Primetime Average Numbers for the Past THREE years only (all I have) so you decide (from TVbtN own weekly charts):

    Primetime Average Viewer Numbers Syfy:
    2010-1,010,000
    2011-1,078,000
    2012 (so far need one more week for 2nd Quarter) – 1,123,000

    18-49 primetime viewing average Syfy:
    2010-479,000
    2011-398,000
    2012-467,000 (need one more week for second quarter)

    @The End, iSGA wasn’t actually mutually ended by both parties (if you mean MGM and Syfy); Syfy got scr*wed on that deal but it’s all water under the bridge now.
