Sporting a brand new haircut, remnicient of Audrey Hepburn and Halle Berry and probably being blessed by every hair salon across the country, “V” has done wonders for ABC ratings with 14.3 million viewers among adults 18-49 on the night of the premiere, on November 3, 2009, easily the best numbers for any new show this season.

 “V” will air in two parts, with four episodes before the holidays, and the remainder in 2010 right after the Olympics are over.  During this hiatus, you can catch Morena Baccarin in the upcoming big screen drama “Stolen Lives,” alongside Josh Lucas and “Mad Men’s” John Hamm.

Stargate Universe Ratings Drop Amid Controversy

November 12, 2009

Seems like Stargate Universe has hit a bump in the road or to put it in more appropriate vernacular, a huge asteroid belt.  On October 31, 2009, longtime Stargate writer, Joseph Mallozzi, left an ill-conceived rant on his popular blog denouncing disgruntled fans who had posted crude and negative opinions over various internet sources, such as twitter, syfy and even his own blog, all voicing their extreme displeasure about the new incarnation of Stargate.  There are now over 500 posts on Mr. Mallozzi’s Blog with regard to only this topic. 

On October 1, 2009, Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune on wrote her own unflattering review of SGU, mirroring what the fans had been saying, which in turn stirred up Brad Wright, one of the producers of Stargate Universe, who slammed back with his own rebuttal which can be found in Ms. Ryan’s second article on November 8, 2009, where she claims that she has now stopped watching Stargate Universe.

So far it looks like everyone is losing in this Stargate tug of war.  The writers and producers of the show seem entrenched in their belief that if the fans don’t like it, then that’s too bad and the fans are responding by not watching the show and posting about it everywhere. 

SGU’s ratings have fallen almost 18% in the US not long after it’s phenomenal premiere at the beginning of October from 1.974 million viewers to 1.626 million viewers as of last Friday’s episode.
