Though my housemates thought Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles would flop, what the hell do they know? While I must admit that I was (and remain) doubtful, the show's series premiere scored big with audiences.

The Sarah Connor Chronicles Opens Big

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles scored the best opening night demo ratings of any new show in three years.

Thanks in part to strong, aka expensive, marketing, Connor opened to an eye-popping 7.6 rating/18 share among adults 18-49 and delivered around 18.3 million viewers with its one-hour bow Sunday at 8, according to prelim Nielsen national data.

While other shows in the same slot did not perform nearly as well -- don't even get me started on the so-called Golden Globes -- Terminator performed amazingly in every way one can look at it.

The series gave Fox its best premiere numbers for a scripted show in eight years, terminating 2000's Malcolm in the Middle.

Even better for Fox, The Sarah Connor Chronicles finally ended NBC's two-week reign of American Gladiators, beating out the reality series by a whopping 30 percent. NBC doesn't have to worry too much, however, as Connor won't be competing for the Sunday spot after its stellar premiere.

While Fox has to be excited about the show's opening, they still are faced with the challenge of surviving as a series. With a show that requires high-budget special effects, Judgment Day comes down to a toss-up.
