On CAPRICA, ratings, pacing, and the future.

Airlock Alpha spoke to SyFy executive Mark Stern this week and let him expound on why the network is 100% behind their new series CAPRICA. Stern says the network is supporting the show "for the long haul," and fans should not let early ratings news get them down or make assumptions about the show's future. Not surprising for a BSG-based show, the DVR+7 ratings are actually higher than expected despite the live Friday ratings being lower than BSG's ever were.

Stern also has some interesting things to say about what is coming up in the next few episodes before the mid-season break. After we see the rest of the first 10 episodes, CAPRICA goes on hiatus until late summer.
