Though sports caused pre-emptions on UPN stations in Phoenix and Milwaukee, "Twilight" tied the overnight ratings brought in by "The Shipment" last week.
According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, this week's Enterprise episode earned a 3.9 total rating/6 share. This means that approximately 3.9% of American households with television sets were tuned to UPN, while Star Trek: Enterprise was viewed by 6% of households watching television at the time.
With the exception of the week when baseball playoffs crushed all competing networks, this marks the third week in a row that Enterprise's overnights have held steady for a new episode. When total viewership is calculated for the total ratings after the pre-empted episode airs in other markets, viewership may rise.
Smallville continued to bring in strong numbers for The WB, earning a 5.8/9 and leaving Enterprise in sixth place for the hour. The Country Music Association Awards on CBS brought that network's overnights up for the evening, allowing it to tie for first place with NBC's usual Wednesday night lineup.
The O.C. would seem to be doing well in its new timeslot at FOX, finishing ahead of both the WB's Angel and UPN's Jake 2.0, which has been picked up for a full season despite consistently finishing in last place in the 9 p.m. hour after Enterprise.
Total viewership will be available tomorrow. Meanwhile the overnight ratings for last night are here.
