A series about a secret U.S. town full of geniuses, 'Eureka' broke Channel records with its two-hour premiere on July 18. The 'Eureka' premiere remains the highest rated series telecast in SCI FI Channel history. Topping off the Channel's best-ever third quarter in household delivery and total viewers, 'Eureka' scored the following ratings milestones:
