Syfy’s “Powerful Mondays” fuels 8% rise in July viewers, but Eureka‘s end in sight?

by on Aug.04, 2011, under Television

The new “Powerful Mondays” lineup on Syfy featuring Eureka, Warehouse 13, and Alphas certainly seems to be doing the trick for the network – overall viewers were up 8% in July, plus double digit gains in 3 key Male demographics over July of last year – 18% in Men 18-34 (126,000), 16% in Men 18-49 (341,000), and 13% in Men 25-54 (392,000).

Syfy launched Summer Premiere Week on July 11, showcasing the “Most Powerful Night of the Week” with Eureka at 8PM, Warehouse 13 at 9PM and newcomer Alphas at 10PM. That night became Syfy’s highest Monday time period audience for scripted series in more than 10 years.


Based on Live +7 DVR data, the July 11 premiere episodes averaged:

Eureka Monday, July 11 at 8PM ET/PT
2.1 HH rating
2.8 million total viewers
1.32 million Adults18-49
1.47 million Adults 25-54

Warehouse 13 Monday, July 11 at 9PM ET/PT
2.7 HH rating
3.56 million total viewers
1.72 million Adults 18-49
1.88 million Adults 25-54

Alphas Monday, July 11 at 10PM ET/PT

However, we could be saying goodbye soon to the good townsfolk of Eureka. According to Deadline, Eureka is set to conclude with a final 6 episode season to begin filming in October. Season 4.5 is currently airing while Season 5 (13 episodes) is currently filming, so we still have a way to go, but it will be sad to say goodbye.
