Friday nights are still considered tv ratings black holes by the suits at 30 Rock. AnHDMe said:What confuses me is... if it has been doing poorly in the Friday night ratings...
why move it to Sunday night? That seems like a bad night too...
The problem with that, as it relates to BSG... is that BSG is a decidedly adult show. Ok, older kids can watch it... but I wouldn't classify it as "family" fare given the violent and sexual nature that it often takes. Mind you I'm not offended, but it is not typical Sunday night "family" programming.Nick said:Sunday evenings, on the other hand, are considered the time when families come
together to relax and regroup after a hectic round of weekend activities and before
the start of a challenging new week.
If true, that confirms what I was thinking... that an adult-natured show like this wouldn't play well on Sunday nights. Usually it's a bad sign when a network starts moving a show around anyway, making it hard for new viewers to find.UKintheUS said:I would Say make the most of the show while you can its ratings have slipped again on Sunday nights.
Next week is the superbowl... and with BSG having lower ratings already anyway, I'm sure they assumed even lower ratings if they went up against the superbowl next Sunday night... so they are probably doing the show a favor by skipping that week.skidog said:Sunday nights at 9 pm sucks. I have to get up early for work, I wish it was on at 8 instead. Also I see we get a new episode in 2 weeks, WTF, it just started the new season and already we get them skipping a week.
