'Eureka' is SCI FI's highest-rated, most watched series of 2006, bringing in over 5 million new viewers (P2+) to the Channel through last week's episode. 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:

--In its first season, 'Eureka' delivered a 2.2 HH rating, 2.7 million P2+ viewers, 1.5 million P25-54 and 1.3 million P18-49.

--'Eureka' outperformed last year's time period average by +175% in HH ratings and +206% in P2+ viewers.

--'Eureka' has been a top five cable program on Tuesday nights nine weeks out of its 12-week run; always remaining inside the top ten.
