    That seems pretty good (in the range of TNG, B5, Firefly, etc.). I think we've got a winner folks.

    That is some poor logic. With the exception of Firefly those shows weren't in primetime televison

    Firefly only achieved half the viewers with far less competition. We have a winner.

    Firefly also aired almost a decade ago. The value of the numbers have changed

    The competition (pirates and many more choice) has increased substantially since then too. Unless TPTB torpedo this it will be an enduring series.

    Very surprised the numbers went up for the second episode. I do still expect them to drop off quite a bit as the season progresses though. That seems to be the trajectory of most new sci-fi shows, even more so given the underwhelming reception the show has gotten relative to the cost.

    I don't know why I thought the numbers went up, I must have misread. They actually dropped from 9.2 million to 8.7 million, which is apparently much less of a drop than the critics expected.

    Piracy is a non factor to the networks. They aren't making any money off them

    people not watching live are people not watching live

    There wasn't even DVR back in the firefly days and very few choices for viewers. Firefly is eating Terra Novas dust.

    I really can't understand why you'd think that. The show premièred to underwhelming numbers, it's one of the most expensive shows to make around, the numbers are already falling off an the receptions has hardly been all that positive. I wouldn't even count on it getting a second season, let alone being 'enduring' in any sense.

    This weeks episode was adjusted up to a 3.1 in the demo retaining 100% of its premiere audience! Very rare that this happens, and FOX sound mighty pleased by how its performing so far. If it keeps doing this then I am sure it is safe for a 2nd season.

    Let us see how it performs after this next episode. I am not ready to celebrate just yet. It is way too early for that.

    word of mouth is a powerful tool
    Some folks will leave (regardless maybe 5 to 10% per week) and recruitment and getting casual viewers (channel clickers) to stop is the key to offsetting attrition. Quite a few scifi shows are able to do this and some (the failures) are not. I've been telling a lot of folks to give Terra Nova a chance - multiply that by 8 million or so viewers and the outcome is bright.

    Hi all, I have long been on the GW forum. And I see that the forum was based on Terra Nova. I like this series. So I hope you do not mind if I join.

    The water is fine. It takes some getting used to listening to those complaining about only 8 million viewers but after that all is good.

    8 million viewers is a lot. In our country it would be incredible ratings.I'm fond of this series and because I like prehistoric period.So I liked Primeval.We'll see how it will develop on Terra Nova.
