There is also a season 2 marathon coming up on Sunday. I hope that will bring in new viewers
Also a S2 marathon on Tuesday the 29th leading up to the S3 premier at 9:00 pm eastern.

Actually, it's kind of odd; if it were my show, I'd be furious that people trying to tune in weren't seeing it. (I can see why they're not going after the "I'll watch it later" crowd as much, but it's still REALLY frustrating when a show about geniuses is on a network that can't seem to tell time with more than 18th-century accuracy.)

But whatever, I've just padded the recording to end much, much later next week.

wrestling goes long
Would this be the right place to mention what a shift in tone occurs when the wrestling show comes on immediately after Eureka? (I don't usually watch "live" so just noticed last night.) Eureka is so wry and quirky--about the characters and dialogue at its best--and suddenly BOOM! huge, beefy, barely dressed snarling guys are flinging each other around. It's like not only a different channel but a different universe.

I get the same feeling when I watch it live during the first showing. About 10 minutes before the end suddenly they are panning across an audience of screaming, sign wielding wrestling fans and I have a split second where I think I somehow missed the end and then I realize it's the preshow shot they always put in at this point. I hate it cause it disrupts the mood the show creates and I think, "Do they really think that either the Eureka fans are going to stick around for wrestling or the wrestling fans are going to tune in 10 minutes early???" It just seems pointless and it irritates me!<rant over>

Say whatever else you will about the WWE... they KNOW their audience. I've known a few hardcore wrestling fans (even been to a couple of events myself), and a fair percentage of them WILL tune in early, to make sure they don't miss anything.
"Do they really think that [...] the wrestling fans are going to tune in 10 minutes early???"

The thing is, that, as a legitimate sporting event, football games can go past 3 hours, or into OT, and there's no way for the network to know when the game will end. Wrestling is not the same. All SciFi has to do is say, the show ends at 11:05 or 11:07, or whatever, and DVRs account for this. When they leave the start time of the show as 11, the DVR will cut off at 12. It's completely unnecessary.
Not to start an argument but they do it because wrestling shows (as they are) are some of the highest rated shows on broadcast cable. The Monday Night USA broadcast runs long on purpose allowing the network to charge a higher price for ads in that quarter hour. And they are not only on and drawing revenue for thier channels 52 weeks a year as opposed to the thirteen of most cable series they are also (on USA and SciFi) live and not always able to end at the exact second as the clock strikes the top of the hour. USA lists Monday Night Raw going to 11:05 and sometimes it still goes over. In most cases they will gladly trade the higher rating in the first quarter hour for the minimal ratings they will get from the following program which is usually the 5000th syndication repeat of a 7 year old network show.

Darn it. I'm losing Pushing Daisies. I was counting on Eureka to fill my whimsy gap.
