So Eureka S4 is going to have 22 20 episodes. How do you think Syfy will schedule that? Do you think they'll run it consecutively into January (allowing for the rumored July 16 start date and holidays)? Or do you think they'll break it up somehow?

I suppose they could pair it with Sanctuary in the fall, but I'd read somewhere else that they were looking at the Being Human remake to be paired with Sanctuary. And there's also SGU to consider.

What do you all think?

EDIT: 07/12/10 Obviously the above was written before we knew that SGU and Sanctuary were moving to Tuesdays. ;)

Well, we still don't know when the second half of S4 will air. All indications seem to be that we will have the first ten episodes and then a mid-season break of yet-to-be-announced length.

Hopefully the ratings continue to stay high for the show, however. :)

Here are the available viewership numbers for last summer (source: TV by the Numbers). I couldn't find numbers for all episodes unfortunately.

3.9 2,600,000
3.10 2,680,000

3.11 - 3.14 numbers not available

3.15 1,989,000
3.16 2,060,000
3.17 2,377,000
3.18 2,300,000

The first press release said 22 episodes (back when it was renewed). The more recent press releases (that I've seen) have said 20. *shrugs* I don't know, but I'm just going with the more recent number.

Syfy has ordered 20 episodes of Eureka....

And from a Sci Fi Wire article about the changes this season... (http://scifiwire.com/2010/07/10-developments-will-chan.php#more)

And it redoubled on itself over the course of the season, and it made for probably the best 10 episodes we've done. And later in the article....
And the plan is hopefully that is going to happen in the back 10 episodes as well
They've made it pretty clear, not only here but in other articles that I posted in the news thread, that we will have 10 episodes this summer, and then a break. And then here Paglia talks about the back 10 episodes, so 10 + 10 = 20.

Though Eureka was down a few hundred thousand viewers and dropped 0.2 of an adult 18-49 ratings point from its premiere and Haven was down 0.1, both still topped 2 million viewers and turned in fine performances on Friday, especially if Caprica and Stargate Universe are the benchmarks.

Maureen Ryan from the Chicago Tribune interviewed Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia at Comic-Con and in her writeup of the interview she says that the second half of S4 will air in early 2011. This is the first thing I've seen anywhere saying when the second half of the season might air, and I hope it's accurate. Many people also assumed that the second half of S3 would air in early 2009, and that turned out to not be the case.

Here's the link (http://featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com/entertainment_tv/2010/07/eureka-felicia-day.html) - beware of spoilers. :)

From the recent Q&A for the episode Founder's Day on the Eureka Unscripted Blog:


Are we getting all 22 episodes this year (Summer 2010 - early Spring 2011) or will it be like Seasons 3.0 and 3.5 when we only got 8 episodes in 2008 and 10 in 2009?

We're actually doing 20 episodes. Nine will air this summer, a Christmas episode will air in December, then the back ten episodes will air after the new year. Hopefully, early, not next summer.

Oh I know. :( If they really end up postponing 4.5 until next summer, I wish they'd go back to the old 13 episode seasons. We get more episodes that way. :S

Taking this with what was said earlier, I'm thinking they don't know for sure when Syfy is going to decide to air the second half. They know it'll be in 2011, and they hope it's earlier rather than later, but it might end up being just like last time. :S

I'm still in the middle of my 'jumping up and down pitching a fit' stage. I'll try and figure it out later.

Considering Syfy has 6 "big" shows right now (Stargate Universe, Caprica, Sanctuary, Eureka, Haven and Warehouse 13) and they want to serve the audience with round-the-year new original content, it would be logical to have 2-3 shows running simultaneosly.

That could possibly mean:

Summer season (Jun-Sep 2010): Warehouse 13 S02, Eureka S4.0 & Haven S01
Fall season (Oct-Dec 2010): Stargate Universe S2.0 & Sanctuary S3.0
Winter season (Jan-Mar 2011): Caprica S1.5 & Eureka S4.5
Spring season (Apr-Jun 2011): Stargate Universe S2.5 & Sanctuary S3.5

That way all shows would get their season aired in one year and the audience would get new episodes the whole year. The emphasis (three shows at once) would be on summer when the audience is usually considerably bigger.

If they're going to keep the show summer only, I wish they would go back to the 13 episode seasons. We actually get more episodes a year that way. *sigh* A 20 episode renewal sounds great, until you find out you're only getting 10 episodes a year.

EDIT: As I've looked back through this thread (not that it's that long), it does look like the cast and crew hoped and maybe even believed at one point that the second half would air earlier. That would explain Colin's "disappointed" comment in the article above. I wonder what happened. It's interesting that the S5 renewal (http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2010/08/17/eureka-renewed-by-syfy-for-a-5th-season/60187), unlike the S4 renewal, does not specify a number of episodes ordered. So I wonder what will happen with that.

Thanks for posting Killdeer. I wondered when the show was coming back for the second of Season 4.

If SYFY keeps this summer only thing up then Season 5 won't air until 2012 and the second half of 5 until 2013, assuming 20 episodes, and by the time season 4 the second half airs the show could have 7 or 8 episodes filmed of season 5. I know the rest season 4 needs to air first but that's what I think could happen.

I know the rest season 4 needs to air first but that's what I think could happen.

I may be wrong about this....please someone correct me if I am....but I'm guessing S5 will probably not start filming until early '12 if they're planning on a Summer '12 premiere. That's, I believe, the way it happened between Seasons 3 & 4. There was a huge break between filming the seasons - that's how Salli Richardson's hair could grow about a foot. ;) I think filming for S3 wrapped up late in '08. And they didn't start filming S4 until early this year.

That has to be a little frustrating for the cast though. I mean I'm just speculating here, but if true that means they're more or less out of work for a year. Not that they can't find other shows to work on. But it just seems like a weird situation all around.

It seems to me that it's a business strategy. Each half season is packaged and sold as if it is a full season, and thus the producers are getting twice as much for half of what they used to produce and release. The consumer always loses, except at least we get something we wanted, even if we're paying twice as much. :(

Well, and there's also the issue of the cast raises. I can't find it now, but I saw a short interview with Colin Ferguson back between S3 & S3.5 talking about this. He was very nice and diplomatic about it - I didn't get the impression that he was complaining. But basically what he said was that the cast have raises built into their contracts for every season. But if it's technically not a new season, they don't have to give the raises.

feels like 2 or more years for one season with the long breaks
this will die out soon and there goes next one of the good shows what are left in tv to watch

i have syfyunivers.ru channel now so basically it's worst then uk version even ... shows clark and luice superman show like 6 times a day

so cant help out with any ratings even
would like to see more west channels on my tv then east one's
but well my country is to small to afford west tv channels so cant help out with ratings
why not make international channel where they show every episode in the same time and get raitings like that
think of 101 countrays 6 biljon people even if it's a 5% of it who will watch and make it worldwide
then all who like can watch it and ratings would be fine to make a show last longer then few seasons

raduzhok
February 13th, 2011, 06:28 AM
Eventually, everything will head into the 'streaming' approach to watching, so they won't even be airing it on tv. The network (syfy in this case) is going to lose big time, but then, so too, will the production company, because with streaming, unless they start charging on that front, while we may have to wait however much time before it airs there, we do have the advantage of waiting, and watching the whole thing thru. Will they still even put it out on DVD/Blue Ray at that point? There is a strong chance, being able to buy a season, will be a thing of the past. :(
