dark-matter-killjoys-syfy-renewalSyfy has renewed freshman programs “Dark Matter” and “Killjoys,” the NBCUniversal-owned cabler announced Tuesday. Both premiering earlier this summer, the dramas’ rookie seasons aired on Fridays and fared decently in same-day numbers by the night’s low-bar standards.

In Nielsen’s “live plus same-day” estimates, “Dark Matter” averaged a 0.27 rating in adults 18-49, a 0.35 in adults 25-54 and 1.023 million viewers overall, and these numbers spiked in “live plus-3” to a 0.45 in 18-49, a 0.64 in 25-54 and 1.754 million viewers overall. In both total viewers and 25-54, “Dark Matter” ranked second among Syfy dramas this summer, behind only the third-year “Defiance.”

“Killjoys” averaged a 0.23 in 18-49, a 0.32 in 25-54 and 955,000 viewers overall in same-night viewing, rising in Live+3 to 0.41, 0.55 and 1.455 million, respectively.

“Dark Matter,” which is based on series creators Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie’s Dark Horse Comics graphic novel of the same name, features Melissa O’Neil, Marc Bendavid, Anthony Lemke, Alex Mallari Jr. and Jodelle Ferland with Roger Cross and Zoie Palmer. It focuses on six people who wake up on a derelict spaceship with no memories of who they are or how they got on board.
