It's getting good ratings:

TNT's post-alien-invasion drama "Falling Skies" just became the biggest cable series launch of 2011 -- though it still didn't come close to matching 2010 winner, "Rizzoli & Isles."

The Steven Spielberg-produced series, starring "ER" veteran Noah Wyle, brought in 5.91 million viewers over the course of its two-hour premiere, according to Neilsen. That makes it the most-watched cable premiere of the year -- and the highest cable premiere ratings since "Rizzoli" debuted to 7.6 million on the same network in July, 2010.

"Skies" managed to do well in the adults 18-49, grabbing 2.6 million in the demo.

"The enormous success of 'Falling Skies' demonstrates what can happen when you partner with the best people in the business and give them what they need to do their very best work," said executive vice president and head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies Michael Wright. "This certainly bodes well for the possibility of the show being renewed for a second season."

I like it. I will keep watching. Its got a little to much "drama" in it, but thats how you keep ratings. I am ok with it.

A lot of mello music with a ton of generic dialogue thrown in.


Oh, there is 2-3 minutes of action, too.

I don't care much for the lead actor. He's never really done much for me.

I don't hate it yet, but it hasn't hooked me like the good shows would have.

Your avatar suggests an excellent taste in television programming.

Indeed.

so far the show has been very bland, they don't do a very good job of endearing you to any of the characters.

None of them are flawed. It makes for a seriously boring group of people with very little conflict.


Battlestar Galactica did an excellent job of using human flaws to really help the audience relate to the characters. It also makes the show a whole lot more interesting.

On one hand, making Starbuck a woman disappointed me.

On the other hand, I'd totally do her.

Yes and Yes.


I stopped watching after 5-6 episodes back in 04', but just started over again since BBC has picked up the series.


It is pretty damn good, but Dirk Benedict will always rule as THE real Starbuck.
