Publish date:

Syfy's Friday night paring of veteran original series Eureka and freshman drama Haven generated strong returns for the network.
The July 9 fourth season premiere of Eureka - about a small town of geniuses and the havoc that their top-secret work often wreaks -- drew 2.5 million viewers during the 9 p.m. hour, slightly below the 2.6 million viewers the series drew last summer for the mid-season premiere of its third season.
The series, which stars Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield and Joe Morton, also drew 1.2 million adults 25 to 54 and 1 million adults 18 to 49 during its season debut, according to Nielsen data.
Haven, a new drama series bases on Stephen King novella The Colorado Kid, drew 2.3 million viewers in its series premiere at 10 p.m., retaining 93% of Eureka's lead-in audience, Syfy officials said. Haven also garnered 1 million adults 25 to 54 and 857,000 adults 18-49 for its debut.
