The overnight ratings for "The Xindi", Enterprise's third season premiere, showed no decline over the ratings for "The Expanse" but were down from those for last season's premiere, "Shockwave, Part II."
According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, "The Xindi" earned a 4.4 rating/7 share. This means that approximately 4.4% of American households with television sets were tuned in Enterprise, while the season premiere was viewed by 7% of households watching television at the time.
UPN placed fourth in the 8-9 p.m. time slot, beating reruns of Smallville on The WB and Ed on NBC.
In May, season finale "The Expanse" also earned a 4.4/7 rating. Last year, the numbers for the Enterprise's premiere also matched those of the previous season's finale, with both parts of "Shockwave" scoring a 4.9/8.
Last season's "A Night In Sickbay" brought in the highest overnight ratings, a 5.1/8.
New series Jake 2.0, the lead-out show for Enterprise, earned a 4.2 rating/6 share, a decline from last season's premiere of The Twilight Zone (4.6/7 on Sept. 18, 2002) but ahead of last night's Angel rerun on the WB.
