Live plus seven-day ratings for Tin Man parts 2 and 3 will not be available until next week.

Tin Man's success extended to the Web, where weekly unique users on SCIFI.COM were at their highest levels since Omniture measurement began in June 2006, topping 1.4MM. The Tin Man section set a new record for SCIFI.COM on December 4, 2007, night three and the finale, with 1.2 MM page views. This section represented 55% of all traffic on SCIFI.COM that day. In video streams, Tin Man represented 83% of all streams on SCIFI.COM with 286,000.

SCI FI's Tin Man is the top cable miniseries of 2007.
