Ed Quinn and Joe Morton in Eureka by Carole Segal/Sci Fi Channel Ed Quinn and Joe Morton in Eureka by Carole Segal/Sci Fi Channel

The Season 2 bow of Sci Fi Channel's Eureka was watched by 2.5 million total viewers, an 18 percent increase over the freshman season's average, but down from last year's series opener (which drew 4.1 mil). Still, it was Sci Fi's top-rated telecast of the year in key demos.... The Monday-night launch of ESPN's The Bronx Is Burning miniseries delivered 2.2 million fans, on par with the 2005 debut of the cabler's Tilt, but shy of the 2.6 mil who sampled Playmakers last August.
