Sci Fi Channel Writeup in EW

The Sci Fi Channel gets a full page writeup in this week’s Entertainment Weekly. They talk about the standards…ratings (Battlestar Galactica was last year’s most-watched cable miniseries; the premiere of Stargate: Atlantis drew 4.2 million viewers) and demographics (43% of the audience is female). They also talk about how NBC, overseeing the Sci Fi channel since its merger with universal, sees the Sci Fi Channel as “the next big thing”. They also mention upcoming projects like Ursula K. Le Guin’s EarthSea, Frank Darabont’s remake of The Thing, Ridley Scott’s remake of The Andromeda Strain and and armageddon-ish miniseries by Martin Scorcese.
