“Terra Nova” drew a rating of 2.1 with the 18-49 demo.  This tied the series low.  Let’s hope things pick up for next week’s finale.  And check out that nifty piece of pre-production art, above.

TERRA NOVA Ratings Not Bronto-Sized!

Posted in Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror, Television with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 27, 2011 by ghostradioworld

Monday night’s premiere of Fox’s Spielberg produced sci-fi extravaganza “Terra Nova” scored a 3.0 rating, and an 8 share, with the 18-49 demo.  This landed it in third place behind CBS and ABC for the night.  This is likely a huge disappointment to Fox who were expected a major score from this expensive show.  The word “flop” is being bandied about.  An early cancellation looks likely.   Proving, once again, the weakness of sci-fi as a genre on the broadcast networks.

Jurassic Park 4?

jurassic park 4

Although there’s no official go-ahead from Universal,  Jurassic Park 3 director Joe Johnston had this to say to AICN in a recent interview:

There is a great story for [Jurassic Park 4] that I would be interested in getting involved with, and it’s nothing like the first three … It sort of takes the franchise off in a completely different direction, which is the only way I would want to get involved.

He also adds that this will be nothing like the first three.  It won’t be a story about people struggling to survive dinos on an island:

We’ve done that and it’s been done three times …

He also suggests we’re past due for a new Jurassic Park film:

I think we are at that point where we are due for another one if we are going to do it. They had what four years between them? 1992… 1996 or 1997, and then 2001, so we are past due.

With Hollywood going sequel mad, it seems likely this will happen at some point.  And, unlike most franchises, we think Jurassic Park still has the sinewy reptile legs to carry it through a few more iterations.
