    V isn't on the Fall schedule.

    But this can't be true. Syfy's press releases about SGU are spinning the numbers to make SGU looks great. Mallozzi is also spinning the numbers. They obviously try their best to make it appear that SGU is a huge ratings hit.

    So my conclusion is, that Briangate isn't "used".
    I think if they are doing anything like that it's more like "Well, we wish the numbers were better, but they're really kinda ok. But let's tell everyone outside this room that the show is REALLY in danger and see if they can get more people to watch it live to raise the ratings for us."

    Obviously, it's wild speculation, but I've seen entertainment companies tell their "temp workers" at trade shows that if product X doesn't sell more soon, then the product won't have a sequel even though the sequel is already in development and they intend to finish it no matter what.

    I'm sure this has been discussed before here but could someone explain to me why Incursion, Part 1 has an increase of+ 19%. Or am I getting old? Or is that just a typo?

    I just don't think that this is true is this case. Syfy, TPTB and SGU actors are all spinning the numbers to make it appear that SGU is doing very well.

    It's for Incursion Part 1 had an increase of 19% from the previous episode but yet it had a season low for the entire Series 1. I'm just confused.

    Patrick Gilmore linked the ratings report on Twitter. Followed by a command to "Get people hooked on SGU."

    Actually it's a -19% in viewers, so a typo

    Lol well your certainly right about gossip. Heck what do you think Twitter and Facebook is really all about? The marketing people love facebook and twitter for the reason you just mentioned. The Holy Grail of marketing. [how to win friends and influence people].

    If they put SGU the same time as V it's a suicide.

    What they should do is put SGU after V then advertize SGU during V.

    SGU and V are on completely different stations. Walt Disney is not about to advertise for their competition. Its no more suicide then SGU competing with the NCIS shows

    So now with the tweet from Gilmore, everybody is on the same page? "Get everyone who likes the show to watch it live and get more people to watch. " Ok - that's a plan - we're agreed? C'mon everyone! Let's join the SGU word-of-mouth Jihad!! Tell your friends and neighbors! Convert 3 people apiece by October and you can claim Superfan status!!

    I've been in the room when people plan this kinda stuff. I'm just the IT guy setting up some visitor's laptop to the wireless network, but they just keep talking.

    Oh c'mon guys!

    V isn't even on this fall. It's a spring show.

    And before we hear it again, Glee has been moved to a different night.

    I think it's a bit worse because V is also science fiction.

    I doubt being of the same genre is going to be a huge factor.
