Star Trek: Enterprise reached its highest fast national ratings of the season last night, rising .1 for the second week in a row to numbers higher than those for the season premiere.
Zap2It reports that Enterprise brought in a 2.1 rating/4 share for UPN. This means that 2.1% of American households with televisions were tuned in to "Cold Station 12", which represents 4% of homes with televisions turned on during the 8 p.m. hour. In that time slot, Enterprise finished ahead of the WB's recently cancelled but not yet off-the-air What I Like About You as well as Grounded For Life.
"Borderland", the first episode in the arc with Brent Spiner, had earned a 2.0/4 last week, so the elevated numbers at the start of sweeps month are encouraging. "Home" brought in only a 1.9/4 in the fast national ratings though its total viewership reflected a greater audience overall.
Though NBC's Dateline continued to dominate the hour with a 6.9/12 rating, UPN has consistently beaten the WB at 8 p.m., despite a lower average for Friday nights overall because reruns of America's Next Top Model have failed to compete in the 9 p.m. hour.
