  • Greg Fuller at the Star Trek Nielsen Ratings Information Database has put up his final ratings report for the 'Alice' rerun. Here's a snippet:

    "Alice" fell back down to "Barge of the Dead"'s mark two weeks ago, pulling in a 2.5 rating, 4 share. That's down from last week's 2.7/4 showing from "Tinker Tenor Doctor Spy" and down from last year's comparable rerun.

  • Cinescape is reporting that Roswell's timeslot change from Wednesday 9:00pm (when it aired directly opposite Voyager) to Monday nights had a somewhat positive effect on the series - its viewership increased from 3.5 to 3.8 million. The series, which is being co-produced by Jonathan Frakes (William T. Riker), is still not certain of renewal - the WB will make a decision on that in May.

  • Meanwhile, according to Greg's report, 'Felicity', which replaced 'Roswell' in the timeslot opposite Voyager, didn't do that well last week, just taking in a 2.3 rating.

  • And finally, UPN's new cop show 'The Beat' scored a 2.3/4 yesterday, rising from last week's 1.5/2 and getting it out of the immediate danger zone. 'The Parkers' and 'Moesha', which started airing on Tuesdays yesterday to replace 'Secret Agent Man', scored a respectable 3.3/5. Thanks go out to UltimateTV for this!
