The highly anticipated finale of “Battlestar Galactica” on Sci Fi drew 2.4 million viewers, the largest audience in three years for the series.
Friday night’s two-hour wrap-up of the space saga drew a 1.7 household rating. It also had 1.5 million adults 18 to 49 and 1.6 million adults 25 to 54, the best since season 2.5 in 2006.
The early national ratings from Nielsen cover live viewing.
Sci Fi, which is changing its name to Syfy in July, plans to keep the “Battlestar” franchise alive. It will air a movie, “The Plan,” directed by “Battlestar’s” Edward James Olmos in the fall.
And the “Battlestar” prequel “Caprica” is expected to air early next year. A two-hour pilot is expected on DVD in April.
