'Battlestar Galactica' Ratings Adrift

TVWeek's James Hibberd: Rated

By Published on .

Last Saturday's much-anticipated "Battlestar Galactica" two-hour movie "Razor" had an unspectacular debut. The stand-alone entry in Sci Fi Channel's Peabody-winning series garnered a 0.8 rating among adults 18 to 49 and was seen by 1.7 million viewers.

That's almost exactly what the entire third "Battlestar" season averaged, but well below its season premiere last fall.

Tricky to tea-leaf what exactly this might mean for the upcoming fourth (and final) season, since "Razor" wasn't a continuation of last season's cliffhanger. Also, Sci Fi aired "Razor" on Thanksgiving weekend, which couldn't have helped.

For those who missed the airing, the "Razor" DVD will be released Dec. 4.
