Here’s something to dance in slow motion about: Syfy’s Defiance on Monday night gave the cabler its highest-rated scripted series premiere since Eureka’s July 2006 bow, drawing 1.3 million viewers in the coveted 18-49 demo.
In total viewers, Defiance delivered 2.7 million, marking Syfy’s biggest premiere audience since Warehouse 13 opened its doors in July 2009.
Defiance, which launched with a two-hour premiere, airs Mondays at 9/8c. Starting April 29, Warehouse 13‘s Season 4.5 will lead out of it, at 10 pm.
