Sci-Fi Fodder

Reminder: "V" Returns This Week

Just a quick reminder - "V" returns on Tuesday, March 30th at 10:00 PM ET on ABC. (Yup - right after "Lost"). There will be nine glorious Sci-Fi episodes for our viewing pleasure.

"V" was well received in the short run, garnering the title of "...the highest-rated new drama series on television". But, in a recent poll, "V" was running at a moderate-yet-favorable 'Keep It!' rating of a 60%, which pales in comparision to the almost 90% approval rating for the best performing show in the poll, "Castle". ABC gave "V" a very strong timeslot (following "Dancing With The Stars" and "Lost"), so expectations are high.

With expectations so high, 60/40 is not exactly a ringing endorsement of the show. I suspect that ABC will require a 'Castle-like' rating for "V" to earn a second season. Let's hope that "V" returns strong, and that the the ratings are better than just 'favorable'.
