I’m not sure I will keep posting these ratings in their own table, I’ll certainly report them weekly in some fashion, but like it or not the show has been renewed already for a second season.  As a result, I can’t see these season one ratings mattering much to a season three renewal.  It will be interesting to see what happens as they near intersecting with Caprica’s. I can easily predict a whole lot of bickering about SGU being renewed for a season two (which again, it already has been) if Caprica doesn’t wind up getting a second season.

Stargate Universe is a very polarizing show with the fans.  It has some diehard fans who adore it, but it seems to have alienated fans of SG1 and Atlantis, and particularly the Atlantis fans are mad at Syfy as they perceive SGU as being the reason Atlantis was canceled (my understanding is that isn’t the case).
