New York, NY � January 18, 2005 � SCI FI Channel kicked off 2005 with a bang, with the series premiere of its critically-acclaimed new original, 'Battlestar Galactica.' The gritty two-hour debut (Friday, January 14, 9-11pm ET) was the #1 cable program on Friday for P25-54, P18-49, M25-54, M18-49 and M18-34. It also delivered the best January performance of any program in the history of SCI FI.

With a 2.6 HH rating and 3.1 million viewers P2+, Battlestar staked its claim as:

#1 for cable (8pm-11pm) among P25-54

#1 for cable (8pm-11pm) among P18-49

SCI FI's highest-rated January program ever

SCI FI's second highest-rated series telecast ever, behind only Stargate Atlantis' series premiere in summer 2004

The series also scored high with coveted demos, delivering 2.2 million P25-54s and 1.9 million P18-49s.

Battlestar won a decisive victory over UPN's 'Enterprise,' outperforming its new episode in total viewers, P25-54 (2.2 million vs. 1.7 million) and P18-49 (1.9 million vs. 1.5 million). In M25-54, Battlestar delivered 1.5 million viewers � beating 16 of the top 20 programs on the six broadcast nets that night, including 'JAG' and Fox's premiere of 'Jonny Zero.'

SCI FI owned Friday night among M25-54, more than doubling the demo for the nearest competition � 'CSI' on Spike TV. Also among M25-54, SCI FI claimed the Top 3 cable telecasts of the day (Battlestar's 9pm premiere and the 8:30pm and 11:30pm broadcasts of 'Battlestar Galactica: The Lowdown').

Battlestar Galactica will join SCI FI Channel's powerhouse night of original programming, "SCI FI Fridays," on January 21, assuming its regular time slot of Fridays at 10pm ET/PT. With the proven ratings muscle of 'Stargate SG-1' (8pm), 'Stargate Atlantis' (9pm) and now 'Battlestar Galactica,' Fridays are destined to become the biggest night of sci-fi on television.
