Well, despite some tough competition and many people undoubtedly travelling for Thanksgiving, SGU managed to get quite a decent up-tick in both overall viewers and the key demo. More info on the ratings here:
So next weeks action packed episode, Resurgence, is the final episode for season 2.0. We need to keep the ratings going up. The decision for season 3 might be made in as little as a few weeks time, so now is the time to make the final push. Let’s prove to MGM and Syfy that this show is worth renewing. We all need to go into overdrive mode. Our best bet now is to promote this next episode as much as humanly possible. So Tweet, Blog, Facebook, Email, Talk about it and even invite people to watch SGU next Tuesday live at 9PM. Go to different entertainment news sites and comment on their SGU articles and/or ask them to run a story on the upcoming mid-season finale (or Stargate Universe in general). We need to make SGU a hot topic on the Internet and get people to watch live the next episode. We suggest you use these two awesome trailers to promote the show;

Also, though live ratings are important, you can help support the show in many other ways. Buying the DVD’s or BluRay season sets, purchasing the episodes on Itunes or Amazon, watching the show on Netflix, Hulu, Syfy rewind, or OnDemand all help quite a bit. Even if you just buy an episode or two, it helps. Every bit counts. This is the week we have to support SGU as much as possible, even if we have to spend a bit of cash to do so. The full first season is out on DVD and Bluray at a decent price, and the half seasons have dropped in price as well (On Amazon). If you haven’t picked up the DVDs yet now is the best time!
Also, if your in another country, watching the show live, or writing to your local station suggesting they pick up SGU is helpful as well!
You can also help by emailing Dave Howe and Mark Stern, (two key decision makers) about season 3, or just email Syfy’s main feed back line.
Tweet @Syfy on twitter and let them know how much you want a season 3 under the tags #SGU and #giveSGUseason3……. And be sure to follow us on Twitter and be tweeting under the tags #SGU and #giveSGUseason3 between 8-10 on Tuesdays EST. (or whenever SGU airs in your country)
Also, the hour after the episode airs in the US, UK, and Canada we will be hosting chats in our chat room on our website regarding the newly aired episode, Have fun, but please don’t be offensive to others or post inappropriate material.
Now go forth SGU army, and spread the word!
Thanks so much for your support,
SGU Awareness Team
