    Alphas is Syfy best show since BSG. Period.

  • coolioni

    W13 had a pretty good episosde, probally the best of this very boring season. It was the mid season finale so that is probally why it was up.
    I am still not sure if it will get cancelled or not. I am leaning towards ” It depends on weather episode 20 of this season ends in a clif hanger or not. If it ends in a cliff hanger I bet it get one more shortened season. If it get a good ending episode I bet it ends there if the ratings still stay on average under 1.3 million.

    Alphas totally sucks and is a very boring show. I can see why its viewers keeps going down and down. I cant watch more than 10 minutes without getting bored to death !

    The only show that I am actually exited about seeing is Continuum on SyFy . I saw it on Showcase in Canada and the show kicks ass. SO I am very glad that SyFy is picking it up. I am sure though that they wont promote it well and its numbers are not going to be that good unless they out it on the only good time slot they have which is @ 10pm on Friday.

    Eureka – that isn’t sci-fi, it’s fantasy. Warehouse 13, ditto. Haven – ditto. Those shows aren’t even in the same genre as Alphas. The characters in those shows are almost completely uninteresting and one-dimensional (with the sole exceptions of Claudia and H. G. Wells in WH 13.)

    Continuum is pretty good, but compared to Alphas it’s nothing, Alphas is THE best produced, best written, best acted, best directed, and most plausibly premised sci-fi show in years. It’s gritty, plausible, realistic and serious (with some clever comic touches.) It has a decent amount of action, but it’s not an “action” show primarily. The actors are competent and their characters are engaging and yet flawed real human beings. There is actual character development in the show, as well. The pacing is good in most episodes, if not all.

    The show has become more serial in its second season, which is likely why the ratings have dropped somewhat. Apparently some people who think of themselves as “science-fiction buffs” can’t follow a story line that makes sense over more than one episode…

    What’s Alphas been averaging so far?

  • ivan

    are the viewers really so little ,this are thousands rith???:D

  • ivan

    Or the three zeroes in the caps are the rest from the numbers :d

  • Jay

    God Romo is terrible. Choke artist.

  • who cares

    The biggest problem for Alphas is that the majority of their viewers either watch it on the internet or download it from torrent sites. Each week, Alphas is normally in the Top 5 downloaded show. A little bit off topic, but this is the same for Fringe. People are” watching these shows, just not on TV, which hurts the ratings.

    Why do people do this? My guess is that the people who watch these shows are either “tech savy”, and believe it is “cooler” to download it rather than watch it on TV, and have to sit through commericals. On the other hand, maybe these people can not afford cable, and as a result have to download the show.

    In conclusion, there are a lot more people watching Alphas than what is being shown in the numbers. However, the method that is being used to view the show might end up being its downfall.

    They shouldn’t have had Major Crimes outside of summer. It was doing better before the competition with broadcast TV.

  • Joseph

    ESPN’s “NFL Monday Night Football” has been the most-watched program, broadcast or cable, every week so far this season and will likely remain that way for the rest for the season.

  • Plok

    While everything seems to be in decline on Syfy, Merlin has grown through the years (thanks to its freshness and increasing quality, I think), and has a good chance now to be the most watched scripted series on the channel. These are the season averages:

    1.708m – Merlin (s4)
    1.684m – Warehouse 13 (s4)
    1.592m – Eureka (s5)
    1.446m – Being Human (s2)
    1.353m – Alphas (s2)
    1.261m – Sanctuary (s4)
    1.159m – Lost Girl (s1)
    1.140m – Lost Girl (s2)

    I’ll tell you what the issue is with Alphas, it re-airs at 10PM…

    I never, and have never, watched it at 8pm…and half the time I watch WH13 at 11PM

    I imagine the numbers at 10PM for Alphas are probably pretty decent, keep in mind they switched timeslots from 10PM to 8PM midseason. I imagine many folks simply watch Alphas at 10 out of habit, which probably cuts into the 8PM ratings.

  • The End

    @luisl

    Probably not a fan of Stargate SG1 or Atlantis huh? Don’t mean to offend you but Alphas doesn’t come anywhere close to the quality of anything Stargate related besides Stargate Universe.

  • The End

    @Richard Steven Hack

    Eureka is actually classed as Science fiction. Pretty much everything in this show falls under the Science fiction catergory.

    Syfy/NBC/Fans/Critics/Everyone but you class this show as Science fiction.
