Ratings for The Dresden Files, Battlestar Galactica, Monk and Pysch [UPDATE] January 23, 2007 6:42 pm

The new Sci Fi series Dresden Files, as well as the returning Battlestar Galactica had trouble finding an audience Sunday night, as ‘Dresden’ failed to get to a good start and ‘Galactica’ was off from its Friday night average.

At 9:00 p.m., The Dresden Files earned a 1.37 household rating and was watched by 1.732M viewers. Among the key demos, it delivered 882,000 adults 18-49 and 1.005M adults 25-54. A weak debut for a new series.

Battlestar Galactica did not fare much better at 10:00 p.m., though it did manage to slightly build upon its lead-in. It earned a 1.39 household rating and was watched by 1.802M viewers.

There was some positive news, however, as among adults 18-49 it averaged 1.255M and drew 1.293M adults 25-54. Much better demo numbers than its lead-in.

Compared to its Friday night average this past season, it was down 100,000 viewers. And off even more from the 2.1M it averaged during the second half of season 2.

Elsewhere in cable television, USA Networks season debuts of Monk (5.16M viewers) and Psych (3.78M viewers) were more solid, though Psych was off in terms of its series launch last season (6.1M) and around 1M viewers shy of its season 1 average.


The second week of Battlestar Galactica and The Dresden Files showed signs of some improvement (Click to read).

It has to be said that this was up against the Colts/Patriots AFC Championship game (which was a fantastic game that drew a lot of viewers) AND a new episode of Desperate Housewives. SciFi is reportedly VERY happy with the numbers for both shows.
