Ratings Streak Reaches Record 16 Months of Growth

Network Ranks Top 10 Among Key Demos

SCI FI Channel has announced that it has scored its best summer ever for ratings. With its 1.0 HH average primetime rating (782,000 HHs/1,062,000 P2+) – an 11% increase over Summer 2002 – SCI FI also extended its streak of year-over-year ratings growth in August to 16 months, currently the longest primetime ratings streak in television.

The Channel also remains in the top 10 in major demo categories, including Persons 18-49 (ranked # 10), 25-54 (#7), Females 25-54 (#9) and Men 25-54 (#7). The biggest win was in the category of Men 18-49, with SCI FI up 11% in primetime (ranked #7).

Stargate SG-1, recently renewed for an eighth season, once again led the charge. With an average HH rating of 1.6 (1,320,000 HHs/1,869,000 P2+) for its Friday night original episodes, it was SCI FI’s highest-rated series for the summer. The June 13 two-hour premiere of Stargate SG-1’s seventh season delivered a 1.9 HH rating, and with 2,425,000 viewers, the telecast attracted more viewers than any episode of Stargate in the program’s cable history. Additionally, Monday night’s block of back-to-back Stargate repeat episodes (7-11 PM) continues to be a powerhouse for the Channel – delivering an average 1.2 HH ratings – a 100% increase over 2002’s average rating in the same time period.

In August, SCI FI delivered a .99 HH rating, a 4% increase over August 2002's .95 rating (both ratings round to a 1.0), and was the Channel’s highest-rated August ever. SCI FI delivered an average audience of 794,000 HHs (+7% vs. 2002) and 1,083,000 viewers (+1% vs. 2002). Additionally, the increase over August 2002 extends the network's streak of consecutive months with year-over-year ratings growth to 16 months.
