Battlestar Galactica premiere will run 3 1/2 minutes long

SCI FI Channel is letting viewers know that the Jan. 16 return of Battlestar Galactica at 10 p.m. will run 3 1/2 minutes long, so make sure to plan ahead if you're watching live or set your DVR accordingly if you're not.

For those who miss it anyway, SCIFI.COM will post the extra minutes following Battlestar's West Coast debut, which ends at 11 p.m. PT/2 a.m. ET.

The final 10 episodes of Battlestar Galactica kick off with an episode entitled "Sometimes a Great Notion," which picks up the story from last June's cliffhanger, in which the Colonial fleet led by Adm. Adama (Edward James Olmos) discover Earth, only to find it a barren nuclear wasteland.
