Eureka renewed

To no one's surprise, Sci Fi Channel has ordered another season of its highly rated series Eureka. The show will begin production on a second 13-episode season in summer 2007 in Vancouver.

Eureka is the network's highest-rated, most-watched series of 2006, averaging 2.7 million veiwers a week. Eureka broke the network's ratings records when it premiered July 18, and that episode remains the highest-rated series telecast in Sci Fi Channel history.

The October 3 Eureka finale beat CW's third-season premiere of Veronica Mars in males 18-49 and 25-54 and put Sci Fi as the top-ranked cable network in the 9 p.m. time slot.

The show tells the story of a town called Eureka, nestled in the US Pacific Northwest. Shrouded in mystery, the small town is home to a community of geniuses assembled by the US government ...

Sci-Fi calls for more Eureka

When TV.com visited the set of Eureka earlier this summer, one of the highlights of the tour was the brand-new, monstrous interior set of the Global Dynamics building. It was a material sign that the Sci-Fi Channel was financially committed to the series, which was then filming its second season.

The investment appears to be worth every penny, because the set will once again be used for another season. The cable network announced yesterday that it had renewed the show for a third season of 13 episodes, with the premiere scheduled for summer 2008. Production will begin early next year in Vancouver.

The second season premiere of Eureka currently reigns as the network's all-time highest-rated broadcast, and Sci-Fi credits the show's second season with bringing in three million new viewers.

"Eureka rose to an even higher creative level in its sophomore season, combining entertaining, compelling stories with ...

Battlestar dips in viewers

Battlestar Galactica suffered casualties in its fight against the evil robot Cylons.

The Sci Fi Channel series' October 6 season-three premiere garnered 2.2 million total viewers. That's down from the 3.1 million the show drew for its season-two premiere in July 2005.

Still, the episode, which featured Apollo in a fat suit and told of the humans creating an insurgency to battle the Cylons on New Caprica, was the number one cable program on Friday night. In the important 18-49 demographic, the show was watched by 1.4 million viewers.

Science fiction fans have had a lot to choose from since Battlestar left the airwaves.

This fall, NBC premiered Heroes, which is drawing high ratings and was given a full-season pickup last week. The Sci Fi Channel also has a new darling in the quirky comedy-drama Eureka, which was ...

TV.com On Set: Sci-Fi flyby
scifi_dig_press_tour_wtabs.jpg

Talk to just about any network television producer, and you'll find that one thing there can never be enough of when creating a show is money. Cash flow determines the show's flow. On-camera talent, off-camera talent, fancy sets, special effects--even what's in the caterer's tent--is all dependent on a program's budget.

Traditional sitcoms and standard dramas are generally pretty easy on a network's wallet--limited sets, little special effects, and low overheads result in bloated salaries for actors (hence Charlie Sheen's rumored $1 million paycheck for each episode of Two and a Half Men). Jerry and Elaine never traveled by spaceship around Manhattan--in fact, the number of sets where the majority of Seinfeld took place can easily be counted on two hands.
