Who Boosts SCI FI Ratings

The new updated Doctor Who boosted SCI FI Channel's ratings on Friday nights by double digits, the network reported. The new version of Doctor Who, produced by the BBC, wrapped its first season on SCI FI on June 9.

Doctor Who averaged a 1.3 household rating and 1.5 million total viewers in its 9 p.m. Friday timeslot, a 44 percent increase in ratings and a 54 percent increase in viewership over the same timeslot in the second quarter last year.

In key demographics, Doctor Who averaged 778,000 viewers aged 18-49, a 57 percent increase over 2005, and 942,000 viewers aged 25-54, a 56 percent increase.

Executive-produced by Russell T. Davies and Julie Gardner, the 13-episode hourlong drama starred Christopher Eccleston and Billie Piper.

ABC Entertainment announced that it was picking up nine of its most popular shows, including Lost and Pushing Daisies, for the fall season; the announcement comes with the expected end of the three-month-old writers' strike likely this week.

Roy Scheider, a two-time Oscar nominee best known to genre fans for starring in Steven Spielberg's '90s TV series SeaQuest DSV and 1975's Jaws, died Feb. 10 at age 75, the Associated Press reported; he died of complications from multiple myeloma, a cancer of the blood cells.

The Eye fell to fourth place from second in its second weekend in theaters, taking in $6.6 million for the three-day period to raise its domestic total to $21.5 million after 10 days of release.
