Now headed into season five and the landmark 100th episode, SCI FI Channel’s StargateAtlantis closed out season four in a ratings upswing.
The season four finale "is the best P25-54 performance for Atlantis in Live + Same Day data since 8/18/06, the night of the Stargate SG-1 200th episode," says SCI FI in their press release distributed a few minutes ago.
(Stargate SG-1 led viewers into Atlantis before it was cancelled after a record ten-season run.)
Here’s the full text of the SCI FI release:
