'200' ratings give Stargate needed boost

Monday - August 21, 2006 | by Darren Sumner

Putting an exclamation point (or perhaps a question mark) on today's news that SCI FI Channel has cancelled Stargate SG-1 (story), the ratings are in: and the show turned in a major ratings boost on Friday, August 18.

SG-1's highly publicized two-hundredth episode earned a 1.9 average household rating, according to a GateWorld source -- a 36 percent jump from the previous week's episode, and by far the highest of the summer season.

"200" is the first episode of Season Ten to meet -- and even exceed -- last year's average rating (1.8).

Stargate Atlantis followed with "The Real World," earning a 1.8 rating. This is an impressive increase of 12 percent from the previous week's episode, and also a season high for the series.

Atlantis has been renewed for its fourth season.

New episodes continue this Friday starting at 9 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on SCI FI! In "Counterstrike," SG-1 returns to the Ori story arc when they encounter Vala's now fully-grown daughter, Adria (Firefly's Morena Baccarin). And on Atlantis's "Common Ground," Colonel Sheppard is kidnapped by Genii Commander Kolya (Robert Davi), and made a fellow prisoner with a Wraith.
