Sky One ratings slain by Buffy. MediaGuardian.co.uk reports on the failure of the premiere UK satellite channel to find a popular successor to Buffy. This has caused Sky One's audience share among young viewers to plummet (painful reg req).
"On Thursday nights, when Buffy was broadcast last year in a double bill with spin-off show Angel, the channel's share is down a massive 43% to 3.34% among 16- to 34-year-olds.
Both shows have now come to an end and even the acquisition of hit thriller 24 and sci-fi series Jake 2.0 - broadcast in the same Thursday night slot between 8pm and 10pm - has not been enough to halt the ratings slide.
While Buffy and Angel attracted average ratings of 860,000 and 749,000 respectively, Jake 2.0 averages 468,000 and 24 is watched by 550,000."
