Thought I'd kick this off with an observation that they're reairing the pilot a lot this week, but the premiere is 1 hour 56 minutes long.

The first reairing is therefore 10:56 PM Eastern Sunday night, instead of 11 PM.

Also, it looks like TNT is putting a big push on this, since it's also getting aired once each on sister stations TBS and TruTV(?) in addition to the 4 reairings on TNT.

Glad they are rerunning it. I've been curious about it and the reviews make it sound like it actually is pretty solid, but I won't be able to see it live, because nothing is keeping me away from the Game of Thrones finale at 9 p.m. But I'm glad I checked in, so I know to tune in at 10:56 and not 11.

The initial rating for the 2 hour pilot is 5.9 Million viewers with a 2.6 (rounded up for those who saw the 2.0 previously posted) in the key advertising 18-49 demographic AND and 3.2 million in the adults 25-54 category. It's being touted as the #1 cable series launch of the year. The move to the 10 eastern time slot will tell the tale of how much staying power this show has. Being slotted behind "Leverage" which is an hour earlier gives TNT a potent one-two punch on Sundays: a day of quite some competition on cable.

http://bit.ly/iWN6DM (Please read down to the first comments between Julia and Robert Seidman.)

The advantage of being on cable, and in particular on TNT, is not having one of the big 4 networks threatening cancellation for low numbers early on. Anyway, there is great promise in this show and the ratings. I hope we get a nice run out of this show, like The 4400 on USA.

It’s been renewed for a second season.

Does anyone know if there will be a two-hour season finale on August 7? My impression has been that there would be 10 hours this season; there's been 7 so far and they announced only 2 episodes were left after last night's show.

I was wondering that myself. The Futon Critic says that there will be.

Looks like Sunday 08/07 will be a post-apocalyptic marathon of all episodes with the two hour finale at 9 and 10 PM. Time to catch up on all those nuances you missed the first round.

Looks like the show did quite well in the ratings for the final 2 episodes.

From TVByTheNumbers:
Each scored a 1.9 rating with adults 18-49, up 27% from last week and the highest-rated episodes of the season other than the 2.0 adults 18-49 rating for the premiere.
FALLING SKIES TNT 10:00 PM 5541 1.9
FALLING SKIES TNT 9:00 PM 5703 1.9

Good for them. I do believe it was the most solid episode to date.

According to the TNT website, they'll be rerunning the first season one ep at a time, on weeknights at 2 AM Eastern, starting tonight. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person on these fora without a TiVo, so I'll try to remember how to program Ye Olde VCR.

Nah, you are not alone. I don't own a TiVo and have to relay on the 'Ye Olde VCR" too. Although, I sometimes go to Hulu or the channel's website if I miss something.

Three more months...I can wait that long. No problem.

There've been lots of season 2 promos on TNT, for those of you who might otherwise avoid the wall-to-wall basketball coverage of the past few days. If I remember correctly, "Sanctuary 1" is re-airing tomorrow night at 11.
