Weak Start for Syfy’s Stargate Universe: Two-hour Series Premiere Draws 2.35M Viewers

Last night was the series premiere of Syfy’s Stargate Universe and although MGM’s (the studio who produces the show) PR team is in full spin mode, the premiere numbers really aren’t anything to be happy about.  The two-hour premiere drew a 1.7 HH rating and 2.35M viewers, with 1.12M viewers within the A18-49 demo, and 1.32M within the Adults 25-54 demo.

The issue here is that in comparison to other Syfy premieres, this is very weak.  For instance Stargate Atlantis debuted with 4.2M viewers in 2004, Eureka pulled in 4.1M for its 2006 premiere and just this year, Warehouse 13 opened with 3.5M viewers.  Even the season one premiere of Battlestar Galactica (3.1M) performed better.

Having said all that, if the show manages to hold at this level, Syfy would likely be satisfied.

The full press release follows after the jump. Continue reading Weak Start for Syfy’s Stargate Universe: Two-hour Series Premiere Draws 2.35M Viewers

Lou Diamond Philips, Three Others, Added to Cast of SGU: Stargate Universe

sguloudiamondphillips-022509The cast for SCI FI’s new Stargate original series is expanding.  SCI FI has announced that Lou Diamond Philips, Ming-Na, Elyse Levesque and Alaina Huffman have been added to the cast of the new series, SGU: Stargate Universe.

SGU follows a band of soldiers, scientists and civilians, who must fend for themselves as they are forced through a Stargate when their hidden base comes under attack. The desperate survivors emerge aboard an ancient ship, which is locked on an unknown course and unable to return to Earth. Faced with meeting the most basic needs of food, water and air, the group must unlock the secrets of the ship’s Stargate to survive. The danger, adventure and hope they find on board the Destiny will reveal the heroes and villains among them.

Lou Diamond Phillips (Che, La Bamba) is Colonel Telford, a proud lifelong military man, who puts his faith in the chain of command. Stubbornly confident, he’s highly regarded by his superiors. He is the chosen leader of the ill-fated expedition.

Ming-Na (ER, Vanished) is Camile Wray, a human resources executive with the international oversight committee that governs the Stargate program. Now the highest ranking member of that division left stranded on the ship, she carries herself with a misguided sense of superiority over the other military and civilian survivors.

Elyse Levesque (Smallville, Men in Trees) stars as Chloe Armstrong, the daughter and aid of a U.S. Senator. Politically savvy, but with a wild side, she is considering following in her father’s footsteps, until she finds herself trapped on the ship. As tensions rise, her character will be tested and her place among the group revealed.

Alaina Huffman (Smallville, Painkiller Jane) portrays MSGT. Tamara Johansen. Unable to afford medical school, the Air Force was the best option for the strong-willed field medic. Faced with the mounting pressure and a lack of in-depth experience, she will be forced to rise to the extraordinary occasion of needing to treat the seriously wounded.

SGU: Stargate Universe launches this October with a two-part opening episode directed by Andy Mikita.  The full press release announcing the new additions, can be read in full after the jump. Continue reading Lou Diamond Philips, Three Others, Added to Cast of SGU: Stargate Universe
