The Sci-Fi Channel reports that their 4th quarter ratings are up over last year's numbers, in part due to Battlestar Galactica:
Fueled by strong performances from its original programming, the SCI FI Channel had its second-strongest fourth quarter ever among adults 18 to 49. It trailed the fourth quarter of 2002, when the blockbuster miniseries Steven Spielberg Presents Taken premiered. SCI FI ranked a strong number six in cable prime time for the last quarter of 2006 among adults 25 to 54.
Battlestar Galactica, which began its third season Oct. 6, showed growth among younger and female audiences, and outpaced the hit show's second half of season two by about 8 percent among adults 18 to 34. The series was up 15 percent among teens, 20 percent among women 18 to 34, 17 percent among women 18 to 49 and 14 percent among women 25 to 54. The average age of viewers was younger by more than a year compared to the previous season.
