Voyager Ratings News

The Star Trek Nielsen Ratings Database has been updated with two new Voyager ratings reports, looking at the show's performance during the final week of November sweeps and the first week of reruns. Firstly, there is a final ratings report for 'Flesh and Blood', the two-hour telemovie, which didn't perform as well as was expected from such a much-hyped event:

Airing as the final Voyager episode in the November sweeps, 'Flesh and Blood' performed only moderately well, earning a 3.4 rating / 5 share. This is the second-highest November sweeps rating so far, about on par with the season average, but well down from the 4.0 earned by 'Pathfinder' last year.

For a two-hour movie event, as 'Flesh and Blood' was, these ratings are a bit disappointing. 'Dark Frontier', the last all-new two-hour Voyager movie, earned a 4.7 rating back in Season Five. For the night, UPN placed fifth, together with the WB. Still, there were also several positive sides to the show's performance: it ranked third for the night among the important Men 18-49 demographic, and it did perform 17% higher than last year's total season average.

A bit more on 'Flesh and Blood' can be found in the full report.

Also available is an overnight ratings report for 'Tsunkatse', the first December rerun:

As the first repeated episode of the season, 'Tsunkatse' scored a 3.6 rating / 6 share, of course well down from the 5.1/8 rating of 'Flesh and Blood, Part Two' last week. In timeslot competition, the rerun just defeated a new 'Felicity' episode, which earned around a 3.5/5, but was itself beaten by a new episode of the just-cancelled 'The $treet'.

The original report can be found here. Overnight reports are based only on the ratings of the top 47 markets in the country, serving only as a quick indicator of how a show will perform, and therefore are on a different scale from the final ratings reports - Voyager typically has higher overnight than final ratings.
