Atlantis, Sky1’s Highest Rated Show in the UK

Sky1 is the UK equivalent to America’s Scifi Channel just so you know. This information was found here.

Sky1’s highest rated show was Stargate Atlantis, which had 354,000 (1.8%) in the 8pm hour, 

Why should MGM decide to cancel Atlantis merely based on profit? Yes, if they merely looked at American ratings they wouldn’t be terribly impressed. But if they took the time to know Atlantis’ viewers, they would know most of them are European. Stargate Atlantis has many many viewers there, and they should count just as much as American viewers.
