The SciFi Channels Battlestar Galactica is set to return October 6th at 10pm EST, but will only air 10 episodes this year before taking the bizarrely annoying mid-season break that SciFi does with their big shows. I don't understand why they do it, the last mid-season break was so long that I totally lost interest in Stargate Atlantis for a while.
Blade, the series based on the movie franchise of the same name, debuted on Spike TV with a bang that gave the channel its best ratings ever. 2.5 million people tuned in for the premier last Wednesday -- whether or not the series will continue to draw those kinds of numbers remains to be seen, however.
Following it's decline in the ratings, The O.C. is having its season order cut down to just 16 episodes, signalling the likely demise of the series next year. USA's The Dead Zone is going to be hitting iTunes soon, as will the pilot for the Blade series. The latter of the two will be available for free. And lastly, The WB is set to go off-air September 17th, followed by the birth of another crappy netlet, cleverly named The CW the very next day.
