The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald Moore’s newest piece of scifi television, Virtuality, isn’t likely to move further than the 2 hour pilot episode. The show, presented as a TV Movie by Fox, was tied for the lowest rated network program Friday night, with a .5 adult demographic rating. Granted, it went up against a Farrah Fawcett special and a Michael Jackson special, both of whom were firmly in the public’s minds Friday night, but with ratings that low, there’s little to no chance of the show getting picked up in the fall.
Considering I had heard little to nothing about the show ahead of its airing, I can’t say this is super surprising. Too bad, as it showed some promise. If you haven’t seen it and are in the US, you can hit the break to watch the pilot in its entirety, courtesy of Hulu.com.
