Rumor: SciFi to plan schedule around BSG

Gateworld is reporting this morning that SciFi is considering running the entire season of Battlestar Galactica (which kicks off again October 6) in one, long 20 episode block. Last year, the series ran in two blocks of 10 epiosdes each with a mid-season cliffhanger.

This move would create a six month gap in the seasons of Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis if it were to become a reality. It also shows that while there are other shows on SciFi that attract a good audience (such as last week's premiere of Eureka) that in terms of buzz and attention, SciFi knows where it's bread is buttered--and that is Battlestar Galactica. It could also be seen as SciFi trying to find a way to offer original programming year round to attract and keep viewers to the network.
