Stargate Universe Flat in Week Two; Sanctuary S2 Premiere Down

stargateuniverse-101309Week two of Syfy’s new original series Stargate Universe drew 2.4 million viewers, on par with last week’s series premiere which drew 2.35 million viewers.  While flat, it’s actually a fairly good sign that the show held week-to-week in total audience.  I actually expected a decline.  It’ll be interesting to see what happens next week because, frankly, I found the third episode (week two) incredibly weak.

Never the less, it’s important to note the positive increases, especially in the key demos (both A18-49 and A25-54). The show drew 1.37 million A18-49 (+22% from last week’s 1.12M) and 1.49 million A25-54 (+13% from last week’s 1.32M).

Meanwhile, the season two premiere of Sanctuary drew 1.85 million viewers (down a significant 31% from last year’s series premiere of 2.7 million).  Among the demos, it drew 946,000 A18-49 and 1.15M A25-54. As with total viewers, that was down a significant 12% among A18-49 (from 1.08M) and 18% among A25-54 (from 1.40M) from last season’s premiere.

On the plus side, the show was on par with last season’s finale (2 million total viewers, 900,000 A18-49 and 1.13M A25-54).

Syfy’s press release — which, of course, contains a fair amount of spin — follows after the jump. Continue reading Stargate Universe Flat in Week Two; Sanctuary S2 Premiere Down
