Absolutely. It is completely different from anything else currently on TV and is a no-brainer shoe-in for most people's weekly TV watching schedule. Dinosaurs, jungles, future tech, strange bugs/animals/diseases/food all keep viewers attention.
The show has ALOT of potential for the future (exploring the mysterious area where the Phoenix group sent Mira's people to scout and find something), now being able to live without any link to the future, domesticating some of the animal species, rebuilding the tech for the bridge from possible notes or calculations or even the drawings left behind by the son).
If anything, it's always more interesting than bland sitcoms and appeals to the adventurous side of everyone. Maybe more of the colony against the odds than the constant infighting and subterfuge would help solidify people's opinions of the show.
