Enterprise's overnight ratings dropped sharply when faced with competition from the Smallville season premiere last night.
According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, Enterprise's "Rajiin" earned a 4.0 rating/6 share. This means that approximately 4% of American households with television sets were tuned to Enterprise, while last night's episode was viewed by 6% of households watching television at the time.
Last week the show earned a 4.4/7 overnight rating for "Extinction."
Smallville, which debuted a new episode in the 8 p.m. timeslot on the WB, opened its third season with a 6.7/11 rating, putting the show in third place for the hour.
Smallville outperformed last-place Enterprise by 67 percent, and had ratings 43 percent higher than the Dawson's Creek season premiere in that time slot a year ago.
Meanwhile, ABC's My Wife and Kids and the season premiere of It's All Relative earned strong ratings, and even FOX's fading Paradise Island managed a 6.0 rating/9 share.
