Eureka S3 premiere blitzes US SciFi ratings

The Eureka Season 3 premiere episode ’Bad to the Drone’ which aired on 29 July, brought home 3,363,000 total viewers for the NBC owned US scifi broadcaster SciFi Channel. The episode is now the highest-rated and most-watched episode of any SCI FI original series since the Eureka series premiere on July 18, 2006. "In total viewers, it ranks as the 4th most-watched episode of any SCI FI original series ever” a channel representative said.

Eureka, a series about a small town of geniuses and the havoc their top-secret work often wreaks, takes a shocking turn in this week with the demise of one of the show's leading characters. The arrival of Allison (Salli Richardson) and Nathan's (Ed Quinn) wedding day coincides with an apparent loop in time, and Sheriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson) is baffled that he, and only he, is reliving Allison's wedding day over an over again. Carter also gets an unexpected extended visit from his free-spirited sister Lexi (guest star Ever Carradine. By episode's end, one of Eureka's heroes will fall.

Other cast members include Jordan Hinson as Zoe Carter, Erica Cerra as Deputy Jo Lupo, and Neil Grayston as Douglas Fargo.

Co-creator Jaime Paglia and Charlie Craig (The X Files, Brimstone) are Executive Producers and Thania St. John and Bruce Miller are Co-Executive Producers. Eureka is produced by the Universal Cable Productions. Source: NBC
