Syfy spins the numbers for the season to date.

[via press release from Syfy]



New York, NY � September 21, 2009 � With its 3rd season finale airing Friday, September 18, Syfy's hit original dramedy Eureka continued its growth streak turning in its highest-rated and most-watched season ever. With full DVR playback data factored in, Eureka settled comfortably into its new night this summer � Fridays at 9pm � averaging 3.2 million total viewers per week. This was also the show's best season ever in adults 18-49 (averaging 1.4 million per week) and adults 25-54 (1.6 million per week).

For the full season 3 vs. season 2, Eureka has grown its audience by +6% in Adults 18-49, +18% in Adults 25-54 and +20% in total viewers.

Nine of the ten most-watched Eureka episodes ever aired in season 3.

The September 18 season finale of Eureka averaged a 1.7 HH rating, 1.1 million Adults 18-49s, 1.2 million adults 25-54 and 2.3 million total viewers. This summer Eureka has been adding approximately 800,000 total viewers per week from DVR playback data that is not recorded in the overnight ratings.

Eureka was the #2 cable entertainment program in its timeslot on Friday night in both key demos, trailing only a new episode of Monk that aired on USA. Among all cable telecasts for the day Eureka ranked #6 for P25-54 viewers and #7 for P18-49 viewers.

In the 9pm hour on Friday, September 18, Syfy delivered more Adults 18-49 and 25-54s than ABC.

At first glance, Eureka seems like any other cozy, Pacific Northwest town, but it's actually a secret community of geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. What they've unwittingly created is a place where anything imaginable can happen... and does. The series stars Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Jordan Hinson, Erica Cerra, Neil Grayston, and Niall Matter. Co-creator Jaime Paglia, Charlie Craig and Thania St. John are Executive Producers.

Eureka has been renewed for a 4th season with production slated to begin next year in Vancouver. The series is produced by Universal Cable Productions.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel, and currently in 95 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBC Universal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy. Imagine greater.)
