Terminator ratings a powerhouse

Fox newest scripted TV series offering, a show that took over what was an anticipated new season of 24, debuted with two episodes Sunday and Monday. It gave this season some sort of brand new spirit, what with the nearly 3month-old writers strike. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, earned 18M in viewership on its first night.

It's a series that needs no introduction. The show is based on the movie franchise that made Arnold Swarchenegger a Hollywood celebrity. If we have to be technical about it, the series takes place between Terminator 2 and 3.

Critical reactions to this series have so far been swinging both ways. Is the show is going to sustain viewership week after week? Or if it will tank the way that Bionic Woman remake did? With the state of television today, only time will tell.
