    Sci Fi Orders Third Round of 'Battlestar'

    Though it will come as a surprise to no one, Sci Fi Channel is readying a third season of its grim space opera "Battlestar Galactica." The series fell off somewhat during its second season-dropping from an average of 1.7 million 18- to 49-year-old viewers last year to 1.5 million. But the program still helped lead Sci Fi to consistent Friday night victories over all of basic cable, besting runners-up TNT, USA Network and Spike. Sci Fi had no comment as the renewal deal was still being finalized.

    Last week the network announced fellow Friday night dramas "Stargate SG-1" and "Stargate Atlantis" were renewed for 20 episodes each and noted that the 10th-season renewal of "SG-1" makes it the longest-running science fiction television program of all time, outlasting "The X-Files," "Twilight Zone" and every iteration of "Star Trek." -JAMES HIBBERD

    Congrads BSG! Though I never doubted the renewal of that show. Happy!

    Here's to hoping that cast renewals are less ambiguous than what's been going on at SG1 recently.

    To be honest, doesn't the cast have one of those "five-year' plans going on? Same as Atlantis?

    Unless it for the story, I mean some most die for the sack of the story. Theres to much Death in this world to realisticly believe they we will make it to the end.

    Not necessarily. BSG doesn't seem to be lining up its timeline to our seasons. I don't recall the dates listed in this seasons episodes, but looking back at my DVDs I see that in "Kobol's Last Gleaming" Helo had been on Caprica for 50 days. The story arc from there to where we are now in season two could not have lasted for more than a few weeks. So we could only be around 65-70 days for 1.5 seasons. Since Roslin said she had like 6 months to live, it could be several seasons before she dies.

    Just FYI:

    The Futon Critic:
    http://www.thefutoncritic.com/cgi/newswire.cgi?id=7022

    LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- Sci Fi is on track to renew its popular original series "Battlestar Galactica," industry insiders reported over the weekend.

    An official announcement is expected later this week once the deal is finalized.

    "Battlestar," despite a 12.96% dip in viewership this season, remains the network's most-watched series with an average 2.06 household rating - slightly ahead of lead-ins "Stargate SG-1" (1.98 rating) and "Stargate Atlantis" (1.99 rating).

    Both "SG-1" and "Atlantis" got the thumbs up for the 2006-07 season last week, also despite dips in viewership from their previous 10-week runs (down 5.37% and 12.00% respectively).

    "Battlestar" nevertheless has been responsible for seven of Sci Fi's 10 most-watched broadcasts in 2005 - its two season openers leading the pack with a 2.6 household rating each.

    In "Flight of the Phoenix" the doctor told Roslin that she was down to a matter of weeks, which makes me wonder what Mary M.'s contract with the show is.

    An episode in the second half is going to deal with her. Something I guess "halts" the cancer.

    Yeah, that was mentioned in a video interview. Guess we just have to wait it out. At least we have another season.

    Sweet.

    As someone said. I think they signed a multiseason deal with the cast. Atlantis did until season 6 I think, then of course Ford left anyways.... lol
