Despite low ratings and a mixed reception from genre fans, Syfy isn't ready to cash out its cubits and give up on 'Caprica' just yet.
Mark Stern, Syfy's EVP of original programming, told Airlock Alpha that the cable net is committed to the show "for the long haul."
Stern says Syfy wasn't expecting the 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel series to become a hit right out of the gate, not even with fans of Ron Moore's celebrated sci-fi show.
"It's not 'Battlestar Galactica,' it's its own animal. And we definitely recognize that it's going to find its audience and it's going to grow its audience," he said.
'Caprica's January premiere reeled in only 1.6 million viewers, but the low turnout was expected, since the two-hour pilot was released on DVD last fall and had also been streaming for free online since December. But the low ratings continued, with the series' second and third episodes pulling in fewer than 1.4 million viewers each (less than 'Swamp Loggers', as our friends at Buddy TV have pointed out.)
