Scare Tactics?

Anyone know how Scare Tactics is doing? The way Scifi is trying to push it in various time slots makes me think it is flopping badly.

Re: Scare Tactics?

I dunno how its doing in the ratings, but I find myself turning to it every Friday just so I can see how little Shannon Doherty is wearing.

I suspect that there are many besides you who do just that.

I caught part of one, got to watch a fat man get scared, and then turned the channel. However, my IQ has been permanently damaged, I fear.

Re: Scare Tactics?

From what I've read, Scare Tactics ratings were through the roof on the first week. Perhaps another sign of the apocalypse.

Anyhoo, I was wondering....

Do you think they can kill her off, like they did with her character on Charmed?

Hey, maybe if the ratings start falling. Anything for a quick boost, eh?

Re: Scare Tactics?

This is from Variety and the full article can be found here:
http://www.variety.com/story.asp?l=s...84317&c=14

The news is good and bad...

Quote:
First the good news: "Scare Tactics" brought in 2.16 million total viewers for its two back-to-back original half-hours April 4 at 10 p.m., numbers 50% higher than Sci Fi's primetime average. Program also funneled more people 18 to 49 -- 1.37 million -- to the network than any other original series premiere in Sci Fi's history.


On the other hand, "Tremors" harvested 2.43 million total viewers over two hours during its two-episode premiere week, but the series managed to deliver only 1.6 million a week later from 9-10 p.m.

Re: Scare Tactics?

I STILL can't fathom why these two shows are doing SO WELL. I mean, they're both a major step down from..... Oh... wait. I guess Sci-Fi finally found their target audience! Well, good for them!

Re: Scare Tactics?

People will be happy to know that SciFi pulled Tremors but apparently Scare Tactics is still on the air.

From the Lee at the SFTV news list:

Quote:
Tremors
3/28/03 1.8 (avg for 2 hours)
4/04/03 1.2
4/11/03 1.3
4/18/03 1.2
4/25/03 0.8

Scare Tactics (Avg for hour)

4/04/03 1.5
4/11/03 1.3
4/18/03 1.2
4/25/03 0.8

Info from my source is that last year Farscape averaged a 1.2 for April (Tremors averaged a 1.1), but Farscape's adult demographics were stronger. Scare Tactics also skews younger in it's demographics as well.

In other shows, Cleopatra 2525 dropped to a .3 last week. Roar has been getting around a .6 rating and the midnight Farscapes have been averaging a .3 .

With Tremors leaving the schedule, Roar is now moved up to 8 pm ET/PT on Wednesdays, followed by a movie.

Re: Scare Tactics?

Thanks for the information,Lyta. We may get lucky and "Scare Tactics" will join the list of failed shows.
