Apparently SGA is doing VERYwell. The article said they six months
selecting the actors, as "Chemistry was essential, in addition to the
ability to deliver the irreverent humor that punctuates the scripts."
SGA's premiere pulled in 4.2 million viewers, making it the highest
rated episode of any series on the SciFi Channel. Also, "in addition,
its presence gave a boost to "Stargate SG-1," which drew 31 percent
more households than its average over summer 2003. By the end of
"Stargate Atlantis"' summer run, it had become the No. 1 Friday night
