'Triangle' Swallows Strong Ratings for Sci Fi

(Posted December 12, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

The Sci Fi Channel has pretty well regained its miniseries mojo with "The Triangle," which has drawn strong and remarkably consistent ratings over the first two of its three nights.

The six-hour miniseries, which was executive produced by Bryan Singer ("X-Men," "House"), Dean Devlin ("Independence Day") and writer Rockne S. O'Bannon ("Farscape"), drew 4.3 million viewers for each of its first two installments Monday and Tuesday (Dec. 5 and 6).

That's about 600,000 more viewers than tuned into the cable channel's December 2004 miniseries "Earthsea." Sci Fi says Monday's premiere, which drew a 3.7 household rating, was the highest-rated miniseries debut on the network since "Taken" opened to a 4.9 rating three years ago.

Tuesday's installment did fractionally better, making it the best-rated program on Sci Fi since the finale of the "Battlestar Galactica" mini in 2003.

On both nights, "The Triangle" was the most-watched entertainment program on cable (it trailed USA's "WWE Raw" on Monday) and outdrew some of its broadcast competition, including everything on UPN and The WB.

The miniseries, which concludes at 9 p.m. Wednesday, stars Sam Neill, Eric Stoltz and Catherine Bell as members of a group investigating the mysterious occurrences within the Bermuda Triangle.
