    0.5 for Lost Girl is great. Matching Syfy original programing on friday night is great.

  • Jon23812

    I hope Gravity Falls does better next week.

  • Hillbilly

    Lost Girl returns in January. Yippie Skippe! :cool:

  • The End

    Nice to see people supporting Lost Girl more. Every week the numbers slowly grow.

  • Martin

    Nice numbers for Lost Girl, definitely earned that renewal. I love these cheaper canadian imports that Syfy gets, really good shows but at a lower budget which means they can get lower ratings and still be renewed.

    Can’t wait to see what Continuum gets when it premieres.

    I know Continuum, Defiance, Sinbad and the second half of this season of Warehouse 13 premieres in April 2013 and that makes it obvious that one of those shows will be on on Fridays. I hope they put Sinbad on Fridays so Continuum can get a better chance at success.

    I could see Defiance, Warehouse 13 and then Continuum in that order.

    No point using Warehouse 13 as a lead-in to Defiance as a). it doesn’t need it as it is probably gonna be really big, maybe even bigger than w13s first season, and b). it is not strong enough to be used as a lead-in anymore.

    I hope though that this means that Alphas will still be renewed as I could easily see it being partnered with Being Human and keeping Lost Girl on Fridays where it is much stronger. All of these premiere in early January 2013 and then by the time these are over the other 4 shows can premiere in mid April 2013.

  • The End

    @Martin

    Showcase renewed Lost Girl, not Syfy. Syfy picked up the third season of the show from Showcase. See here
    http://www.showcase.ca/blog/archive/2011/12/9/the-succubus-stays-lost-girl-renewed-for-season-3.aspx

    Continuum, which has a 2nd season in production is in the same position as Lost Girl. Both these shows are renewed on the strength of their Canadian performance alone.

  • Poweranimals

    Does anyone have the numbers for My Babysitter’s a Vampire at 8 and Code 9 at 8:30?

  • Kaylie

    I knew Disney wouldnt do so well this week. It was a weak night. Kudos to Gravity Falls who at least progressed overtime :)

  • Jared

    Pretty good numbers for Ghost Adventures on Travel Channel. We hardly see any shows from Travel Channel make the cable top 100.

  • Rodrigo Gutierrez

    Boss is always steady at a little under 400,000 viewers. :(
    Hope it gets one more season.

  • Ryan Stoppable

    @Poweranimals:

    My Babysitter’s a Vampire (8:00) – Disney

    Code 9 (8:30) – Disney
    2.133 million viewers, #6; 0.385 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #20

  • Azzman

    XIII is the best show on Fridays that no one’s watching..Guess people don’t know about it or they don’t have the Reelz channel?

  • everton

    gooooooooooooooooooooooo nick

  • juan

    thats very good for Lost Girl, hope it comes back strong in january

  • jimmy

    anyone have the ratings for “Cheer” on CMT Friday?

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Friday’s episode of Strike Back was another excellent episode. This show is, next to Nikita, the best action show on the air. And certainly the one with the most shooting by far! And a lot of hot babes! :-)

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Azzman: Is the XIII you’re referring to the original mini-series, or the series called “XIII: The Series”? If so, it’s a rerun.

    But I agree, it was a pretty good series, similar to, if not as intense, as “24″. If you like it, you should watch Strike Back, which is better.

  • melvin

    wow without jessie on fridays, disney is really doomed, i thought gravity falls will do better epecially with the street fighter themed episode
