1.6 Million Journeyed To ‘Caprica’

The Cylons must be laughing their asses off…

Caprica, the prequel series to the phenomenal Battlestar Galactica, bowed to an “unimpressive” 1.6 million viewers this past Friday night. A lot of analysts cite that the fact of the pilot being available online and on DVD for almost a year now could be a reason for the disheartening numbers, especially since that rating falls below averaging numbers for both Battlestar Galactica and Stargate Universe. The same analysts feel that the second episode, which is titled “Rebirth”, will tell the story in terms of viewers and ratings since it is the “true” Caprica premiere. An estimated 2 million had already seen the Caprica pilot prior to last Friday’s broadcast premiere.

While ratings are not my thing (if you let my previous articles on the subject tell you), I have to agree with the analysts on this one. The second episode should be the one to watch for, not just in terms of ratings, but if the show is really worth your time. Don’t let low ratings, or ratings mongers, scare you from something you might potentially like. And that’s my public service announcement for the month.

So what do you think? Is it a sign of the times for Caprica or is it too early to sound the cloister bell (Doctor Who reference…)?
