A Disappointing Start For Caprica - Featured

From THR:

Syfy's Battlestar Galactica spinoff Caprica got off to a weak start Friday night, drawing 1.6 million viewers. That's below the averages for "Battlestar" and "Stargate: Universe" on Fridays, and well below their premieres ("Universe" drew 2.4 million last fall).

Of course, most "Battlestar" fans interested in "Caprica" had probably already seen the first episode, since the pilot has been available on DVD and online. Syfy says that between Hulu, iTunes and Syfy.com, they've received about 2 million viewers pre-premiere. The second episode is always more telling than the first, and this time that goes double for "Caprica."

I agree, I didnt watch the premiere myself friday having bought the dvd version, and reading somewhere that it was edited, just a bit, for airing on tv; definitely plan on tuning in for this weeks episode though

it probably didn't help that it was up against Hope for Haiti on almost every other network.

I was one of the 1.6 million, having actually missed it the first go around, always low on cash for the DVD, and then just waiting to watch the series premiere with family. Loved it, by the way. Kinda wish I hadn't waited so long, but I ended up doing the same thing with BSG.

Well i imagine it was expected since everyone on the net got the pre-aired copy!
I saw this last May for chirst sakes!
I am sure the second will do better ... i will be on at least!

I'm hugely excited for Caprica, maybe filling the space that SGU has failed to fill. I have the DVD - it's dark and intreguing and very promising. Looking forward to the series.
