Yeah. It was buzzworthy for about a year and a half, but it started bleeding ratings pretty quickly after that.

OTOH, the original BSG was such a huge hit that the network had to go out of its way to kill it. Twice. (In modern money, each episode of the original BSG cost about $3.7 million. They couldn't afford to keep it on the air.)
