It'll likely be announced within the next day or two. GateWorld will post a news story. I'm guessing just over 1 million, but maybe it will get more than that due to it being the series finale.

Yeah, either later today or early tomorrow. Unless it's inexplicably huge and SyFy decides to issue us a press release. That of course would be yet another punch in the face. Seeing as it'll neither be huge and SyFy will chose to ignore it's existence that won't happen...

The majority of season 2 has floated around 1 million viewers with Epilogue rating the highest (i think) with an approximation of 1.1 million viewers. My guess is there won't be much of a jump though as "fans" who lost interest along the way probably won't care enough. Besides, if you hadn't been watching it'll make very little sense and the emotional impact would be lost.

Taking the series as a whole the trend was 'the more awesome it is, the lower the ratings' and this sort of stabilised around 1 million ( jojo'ing up and down a few hundred thousand ) which isn't so weird because the entirity of season 2 as awesome.

Due to it's awesomeness ( and because it was actually terrific as a series finale, with the goodbyes and Destiny shutting down and all ) I'm going to say, based on the trend... 700K :)

I hope it's more of course.

It would be a massive slap in the face to SyFy if it got several million or more..

Apparently, Gauntlet got 1.134 million viewers, while Sanctuary has plummeted to only 756k. Talk about a serious turn around.

Syfy needs to learn how to manage time slots.

Hehe, reported to 4 significant digits (not the poster's fault I know as it's just copied from elsewhere.) The probability of there being 1.135 or 1.133 million viewers is almost the same as 1.134. There are large uncertainties involved, which news reports most often ignore.

Anyway, not very impressive and to be expected. With so much choice in entertainment these days I fully expect that more and more shows are going to be struggling.

It's impressive for SGU, and for any show in that time slot on a minor network.

That is so ****ing hilarious/ironic or something stupid it's not even funny. Like wow. What a turnaround.

If sanctuary does keep dropping, it does prove a point.

Luckily we can hope Sanctuary viewers keep dropping in that timeslot without it damaging the shows chance of another season, because they got picked up already. We're not sanctuary haters or anything that actively wish sanctuary's demise.

The "turn around" I was referring to was Sanctuary plummeting to the center of the Earth, viewership wise. Contrast this to how they were doing in the Friday slot last year.

From Syfy's posting on the main gateworld page, it seems that 'bump up' we got is normal for the ending of a series.

May 12th, 2011, 08:26 PM
Indeed, which makes it kinda funny people were expecting it to be in the 700k's or around that. It was nice of Syfy to reply, and to get their side of the story; makes me feel a lot better about it all. C'est la vie.
