    I think I heard recently that it was around 54th in the Nielsen ratings, which isn't great, but it's not terrible either. But with a show like Alias, what it lacks in ratings it more than makes up for in critical acclaim. This show has gotten ENORMOUS critical buzz, for both the show itself and Jennifer Garner, and has been nominated for and won numerous awards (including prestigious ones like Golden Globes and Emmys). That's why it was given the post-Superbowl spot: ABC realizes it has an awesome, well-made show, and they want to try to introduce it to a bigger audience.

    Whether that works or not, I'd say it's 99% certain that Alias will be around next season. There's no way they're going to let go of a show with this much buzz without a fight. Also, they need to wait till the fourth season before they can sell syndication rights, which will bring them in a lot of money. I'm not really worried about the show going anywhere anytime soon, I'm just disappointed that the majority of stupid Americans don't know how great it is. But then again, most of them probably aren't bright enough to understand it anyway.

    I wouldn't be too worried but then again the superbowl spot is critical to maintain the ratings I hope it stays! :D

    Well, I'm American, in case it sounds like I'm not. I just don't have much patience for people who deliberately prefer felgercarb over quality. I know everybody has their own opinion about what "quality" is, but I think it's obvious that there are *some* standards. And talented people like J.J. Abrams end up out of job because the majority of people don't want to invest the brainpower to watch a show that requires thinking.

    Although I'm not sure why it would offend anyone on this site, because obviously none of us fall into that category.

    hey, i'm American and I would appreciate it if you don't diss us like that. i know that around me anyways, Alias doesn't get mucg publicity. when I talk to people about it, the majority haven't even heard of it. Not my fault...

    It is puzzling, I agree. This makes me worried about Alias's future beyond season 2...or three.

    I was just watching the Daredevil trailer online, and it got me thinking. If the movie is a big hit, don't you think it would help the Alias ratings? It probably will be pretty big, considering it's an action movie and it stars Ben Affleck. And Jennifer Garner is the female lead right? It seems like the fact that she has her own action show on TV right now might draw some fans of the movie over.

    I mean, when Spiderman came out, Kirsten Dunst wasn't that big, but if she'd had a struggling television show at the time, I bet it would have helped it. And from the trailer, it seems like Jennifer is going to have a much cooler role than Kirsten did. It might help..Does anyone think that's a possibility?

    I think it will help. Because from what I know about Jennifer Garner's part (which is only very basic knowledge), she gets to be very active, while Kirsten Dunst's character was the "save me, save me" helpless girl part. People will see Garner kicking butt, and become obsessed with her, and everyone will see the light and flock to watch Alias. :D

    Sorry, two replies from me in a row. I meant to add this, but hit reply accidently before I was done. Grr...
    They're not stupid... just ignorant, which is partly ABC's fault. They don't seem to be advertising Alias now as extensively as last year. I'm sure if they tuned it, most of them would get it. The plot is very complex though... when I first started watching, I was extremely confused! It moves fast and covers a lot of things. Also, when many people turn on the TV, they want to watch something that won't make them think much, which is why so many of the lighter shows are doing so good.
    And I keep saying "them" like I'm not American or something...

    Because of the Superbowl ep and February/May sweeps, we can expect to see lots of advertising for Alias from ABC.

    And I hope the post-Superbowl ep doesn't confuse everyone, but I'm sure JJ has that taken care of. :)

    Yes, they will have to have an introduction to Alias part - or everyone will be lost.

    I love Alias. I won;t be cancelled anythime soon. IT doesn't have great ratings, but ABC is having problems finding shows especcially dramas that will get any ratings at all. Besides. All the networks split the ratings xfiles got at it's highest. Nobody could get all those fans.
