Syfy (ended 2008)
Look at this,this on gateworld.net'200' ratings give Stargate needed boost
Putting an exclamation point (or perhaps a question mark) on today's news that SCI FI Channel has cancelled Stargate SG-1 (story), the ratings are in: and the show turned in a major ratings boost on Friday, August 18.
SG-1's highly publicized two-hundredth episode earned a 1.9 average household rating, according to a GateWorld source -- a 36 percent jump from the previous week's episode, and by far the highest of the summer season.
"200" is the first episode of Season Ten to meet -- and even exceed -- last year's average rating (1..
Stargate Atlantis followed with "The Real World," earning a 1.8 rating. This is an impressive increase of 12 percent from the previous week's episode, and also a season high for the series.
Atlantis has been renewed for its fourth season.
New episodes continue this Friday starting at 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on SCI FI! In "Counterstrike," SG-1 returns to the Ori story arc when they encounter Vala's now fully-grown daughter, Adria (Firefly's Morena Baccarin). And on Atlantis's "Common Ground," Colonel Sheppard is kidnapped by Genii Commander Kolya (Robert Davi), and made a fellow prisoner with a Wraith.
Now,SciFi here's your ratings,36% boost,how can you do this to us?!?To all that live in USA,just keep watching Stargate LIVE and keep ratings strong and then producers will find solution.I'm from Slovenia and I'm not the only one that watches Startgate SG-1 and SGA,there quite few of us in Slovenia that loves SG-1 and SGA.
|Now there really isnt a reason to watch tv anymore. First Carnivalè then Rome,Deadwood,Sopranos and now SG1.|
I'll post what I said on another board, becuase why SciFi would want to cancell this show is beyond me.- I can't believe it! I love this show so much and for them to just cancel it after the 10th season and 200th episode??? I mean even the actors were saying how they hope they'll make it to episode 300 or 400 and so on. Also, they have such a huge fan base! First you've got the people who followed it from the movie, then the people who followed it after it moved from showtime to SciFi, and now it's got whoever followed Ben and Cluadia from Farscape. They've built up such a large audiance over the years, and now they're just cancelling it. I know ratings are down, but like a lot of pepole are saying, they could have advertised it WAY better than they did.
As for Stargate Atlantis- They say that they are renewing it for a fourth season. However, I don't think that it will do as well without Stargate SG-1. I only watch Atlantis becuas it airs right after SG-1 and I'm sure that's the case for a lot of people.
And they're even in the Guiness(sp?) book of World records for longest running SciFi series in America.
I really do hope that another network picks it up.
|They've go to be kidding me. I mean, I didn't think season nine was the best season ever, but they were making a huge comeback with season ten. Even if Sci-Fi is stupid enough to cancel it, another network will pick it up, right?|
