Ratings Drop

From Gateworld:

Ratings for Battlestar Galactica's January 13 episode dropped in its second week of new episodes, while Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis fell to season lows.
"Resurrection Ship, Part 2" earned a 1.9 average household rating on The SCI FI Channel last week, down two-tenths of a point from the previous week. This ties "Resistance" and "Flight of the Phoenix" for the lowest-rated episode of the season to date.
Galactica remained SCI FI's highest-rated show of the week.
Stargate SG-1 earned a 1.7 rating in the 8 p.m. timeslot with "Collateral Damage." This is down two-tenths of a point from the previous week, and took the place of September's 2-hour mid-season finale as Season Nine's lowest to date.
The show did remain steady among viewers aged 25 to 54, a key demographic for The SCI FI Channel.
In a rare occurance, Stargate Atlantis lost viewers from its lead-in show in the 9 p.m. slot. "Epiphany" earned a 1.6 rating, down four-tenths of a point -- a full 20 percent -- from the previous week's mid-season premiere.
Atlantis's previous low mark of the season was also its 2-hour September finale, which earned a 1.7. "Epiphany" is also the lowest-rated in the series' short, one and a half-year history.
The three series earned ratings of 1.0 (SG-1), 0.7 (Atlantis), and 0.6 (Galactica) during the late-night reruns of these episodes.
New episodes continue this Friday starting at 8 p.m. Eastern/Pacific on SCI FI!
