Indeed. There were several instances where reruns of ENT on Sci-Fi were watched by more viewers than first run BSG. One time I can directly think of, with the apparent death of Starbuck... its ratings were struggling compared to reruns of a cancelled show! Of course, they turn to ENT for episode marathons during the holidays and continue to go through the series an episode a week. All this even despite buying the rights to the more popular TNG... Surely they wouldn't press on when they have twice as many episodes from a 'superior series' to replace it with?
I'm not an expert, but if my memory serves, BSG got about half or maybe two thirds of the viewership Enterprise did (1-2 million as opposed to 2-3 million), and SG: Atlantis did about as well. Now, both of those shows have since ended, but my understanding is that both endings were the result of creative decisions, and both franchises and now getting continuations in the form of Caprica and Universe.
Save Enterprise is closing shop

This is nice that we're back in talking about things and hopefully it doesn't stop in a week or two, I think we've found new things to do in terms of securing Enterprise's future for example i read CP wishing that Enterprise got a mention in the new film we know a second film is coming so you know maybe that wish could come true if given the right nudges regardless it is all fresh food for thought.

We should probly include Scifi on our may mailer, as if they request new episodes of Enterprise from CBS/Paramount, that can show the demand that is needed to get it back, even if CBS decided that they would not give it to Scifi, they may want it for CW or CBS.
But if Scifi begins to ask for more Enterprise (maybe they already have?), and the Fans are asking for more Enterprise, there is a demand for the show, and TPTB may listen.
I plan on sending several letters and phone calls the 1st week of may, and think it may be a good Idea to continue sending 1 letter a week, and 1 phone call a week, for the month of may, as it would be a good time for intensified efforts.
