    Default Stargate Atlantis boosts Stargate SG-1

    A friend sent an article from a trade magazine, TelevisionWeek.
    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."

    It added....

    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
    nonsports entertainment program on both cable and broadcast with 18-
    to 49-year-old men."

    Yes, it is, but Sci-Fi is a cable channel, meaning a lower percentage of people actually get the channel that those you get broadcast channels (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, UPN, WB).

    Maybe they didn't take that into account. Not that I'm saying...

    It's great to see that Stargate Atlantis has boosted the ratings, meaning a stronger record for the show. Despite the fact these figures are for the US, I think here in the UK it is Sky One's top viewed show, as far as I know. It's certainly proving popular amongst viewers.

    Not as as many viewers in the UK as in the US, but Rising scored over one million viewers, and so forth have scored close to one million.

    But there are less people in the UK, and 1.18 million is briliant for a non terestrial channel.
