Last Week’s Episode Online
You can watch the entire episode of "Sometimes a Great Notion" at Hulu.com (US) or Spacecast.com (Canada). Hulu also has a version with Ron Moore commentary, also embedded here:
Last Friday’s season 4.5 premiere drew a 1.6 household coverage rating and 2.11 million total viewers. That performance is basically flat when compared to the season 4 premiere. Among the key demographics, however, the show was off slightly more, drawing 1.3 million adults 18-49 and 1.4 million adults 25-54. By way of comparison, the season 4 premiere drew 1.4 million adults 18-49 (-10%) and 1.5 million adults 25-54 (-7%). In a press release SCI FI claimed ‘double digit gains’ in ratings, but that was somewhat misleading in that they compare the season premiere’s performance to the season 4.0 average.
Post 4.5 premiere interviews
Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune has a post-premiere interview with Ron Moore, David Weddle, Bradley Thompson an Michael Nankin about the episode. There is too much to quote here so just go read it.
