Don't worry about Caprica ratings - yet

Caprica drew only 1.6 million viewers last Friday which is a low showing. That's worse than Stargate Universe, Warehouse 13, Eureka, and it's almost worse than dirt cheap Sanctuary. What you have to remember is that Caprica has been on DVD and online for months and months. Syfy estimated the number of people that already watched the pilot to be 1.5 million even before the premiere. Couple that with the 1.6 that watched on television and that's a great number. Take off a couple hundred thousand or even a million, and it's still strong. This Friday's ratings will be the real test when those who didn't bother to tune in to something they already saw come back to see the next episode.
