12:00 AM, 21-NOVEMBER -06

SCI FI Channel's award-winning series Battlestar Galactica will move to a new timeslot starting Jan. 21, 2007: Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT, following the premiere of the new original series The Dresden Files at 9 p.m.

Battlestar Galactica has been airing episodes of its current third season on Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The current season picks up the story of the ragtag fleet of human survivors as they flee the Cylon menace. Executive-produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, the series stars Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Jamie Bamber, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Grace Park. —Patrick Lee, News Editor

Finally, SFC is expanding their nights of original series. This is cool. AND we finally have a premiere date for the Dresden Files!

I dislike when time slots for tv shows get moved because every time I've ever seen them moved they get killed in the next season mostly because I believe people are used to when the show was on and can't remember when the new time slot is or it conflicts With another higher rated show.

I don't like this either, they had a perfect time slot with the Stargate series lead-in and Battlestar at 10 p.m. on Friday nights. Then they started moving and scheduling everything around and the ratings started to drop, not by a whole lot but it obviously has sci-fi channel worried.

Not too worried, I am sure, as it is still SFC's highest rated original series after ECW. The ratings drop is simple scheduling. The previous half seasons of BSG, and the other SFC series were always premiered in July and February. This year, they threw BSG into direction competition with the first runs of the new season on the networks. Bad move. Not enough audience to go around.

This is a smarter move, really, as their is not much competition on Sunday night at that time slot. Plus, as I said, it opens up another night of original programming, puts it back to back with what promises to be another darker series in The Dresden Files, AND it opens up a pretty much permanent slot for Doctor Who and Torchwood, should SFC pick up Torchwood, which I think they will. Torchwood didn't really have much of a place, as it definitely needs to be a 10 PM time slot for that.

Let's not forget that when FOX premiered X-Files, it was also on a Friday night. It wasn't until they moved it to Sunday that it really picked up an audience. And Friday nights are a death slot for TV shows, as the core audience they are going for, the 18-35 market, is usually out on the town on Fridays. How many shows, including the original Star Trek died on Friday nights? I could easily name a dozen off the top of my head.

No, Sunday is a much better slot for it.

I could name just as many or maybe more that died after being moved from there time slot. But right now at 5am and with only 5 hours sleep in the past 24 I probably couldn't name one... sorry brain is funky and I'm a recovering insomniac, but anyways I remember a lot of shows that are gone that I thought where good because they where moved to a deferent time.

I'll tell you one show, Threshold which wasn't doing that bad in the ratings on Fridays at 9 p.m. was switched to Tuesday night at 10 p.m., on top of that a two-week hiatus. So when Threshold did go on the air probably half of the viewers couldn't find it, which means lower ratings and eventually cancellation.

CBS= Coldcase
ABC =Desperate Houswives
FOX= American Dad & War At Home
NBC=--------- Football now in Jan don't Know
CW= Top Model

NBC and CW may change but I don't see much compatition. Maybe people turning in early to get up for work may hurt it though

Will someone shut that man up
NEVER!

Anyone want to come with me to 30 Rockafeller in New York to talk some sense into those jarheads they call execs?

I get the feeling that they want to cancel BSG.

Look, I didn't hear any screaming or squishing sounds.

I would love to but I don't have the time or the money to go. I like the new BSG even though I don't get to see it live.

I really think you folks are panicking over nothing. BSG's ratings are down, but so is everything on Sci Fi channel. It IS the fall season here, folks. ECW, Sci Fi's highest rated show is down about a million viewers to 1.6 million from it's summertime ratings, too. BSG is only off ECW's ratings by 100K viewers at 1.5 million for second place. It is not in danger of cancellation yet. It is getting far too much atention from the critics and fans to be in danger yet.

That's a good possibility, if most of the people that have a Nelson box that tracks the ratings decide to go to sleep early it would hurt the show. I don't think it's a good move but will see.

Back in '78 ABC aired Battlestar Galactica on Sundays at 8PM; can these chimpanzees do nothing without a road map?

On my local cable system the Sci-Fi Channel moved off expanded basic, preferring to serve only digital cable customers (well that's the story Comcast gave me).
I was confused because this further limits their audience---I mean I'm trying to reach the entire English-speaking world, and they're moving into an even smaller market? I'd like to see someone make that make sense.
Thing is, I refuse to "upgrade" to digital until I have no other choice but by then, I hope to have most of the Sci-Fi Channel's best programming on DVD.

Star Trek, Classic Battlestar Galactica, Babylon 5, the first few seasons of Stargate: SG1---seems like the best programming the Sci-Fi channel offers, came from somewhere else.
Stargate: SG1 and Stargate: Atlantis, Classic Star Trek and Farscape I get in syndication. Anything else worth watching is available from Netflix or Blockbuster, so who really needs the Sci-Fi Channel?

As Captain Gideon of the Earth Alliance starship Excalibur once said, "Screw 'em."
