The Sci-Fi channel is apparently happy with the ratings Battlestar has received since moving to Sunday nights; they just announced that the series will return for a fourth season. Interestingly, the order is only for 13 episodes, the same number as the first season, and far fewer than the 20 ordered for the second and third seasons. Might Battlestar be nearing its end?

Generally, for a series to be considered viable for syndication, 100 episodes are required. If the show ends after the short fourth season, there will be 66 eps and the pilot mini-series. Since the mini is equivalent to about 4 episodes, there would be 70 eps worth of syndicationable material. Hmm.
