"The Council" showed a very small upturn in overnight ratings for Star Trek: Enterprise.
According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, "The Council" earned a 3.4 overnight rating/5 share. This means that approximately 3.4% of American households were tuned to UPN during the hour, while Enterprise was viewed by 5% of households watching television at the time.
These overnight ratings, which measure metered markets, are up .1 from those brought in last week by "E²".
Enterprise was spared MediaWeek Programming Insider Marc Berman's loser's column. "Trekkies, take note: You'll know by next Thursday if Enterprise is coming back for a fourth season," Berman wrote, reporting that an estimated 3.35 million viewers tuned in last night.
Smallville, the competition on the WB, had a 4.7/7 overnight and double the viewers in the adult demographic.
Zap2It did not report the fast national rating for "The Council", but said that the WB had tied the 2.9/5 it earned last week and added that Enterprise came in six-tenths of a point lower, which would give it a 2.3. Two weeks ago "The Forgotten" had a 2.1/4 fast national rating.
