Ratings-wise, Caprica has been a Mister Toad’s Wild Ride of awfulness thus far. From a mediocre debut of 1.6 million viewers, we’ve dropped an average of 200,000 viewers every week. How low can it go? Well, pretty darn low, it seems. Last week’s rather bizarre bit of counter programming - running a show no one cares about (Caprica) against a show everyone cares about (The Olympics) - went about as well as you’d expect. Just like I called it last Friday, ratings were significantly below one million viewers, and I’m pretty convinced a whole bunch of them were Croatians in town to support their team for the luge completion, who don’t speak the language, and mistook Caprica City for Vancouver (They do look a lot alike).
Now, as hilarious and entertaining as it normally is to watch a show drop 630,000 viewers in a month, I’m actually a little bit bummed since I’m really kinda’ digging the show while they’re digging their own grave.
