Star Trek: Enterprise's "North Star" brought in higher overnight ratings than the series has earned for the past several weeks, though UPN continued to be dominated by the other networks.
According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, this week's Enterprise episode earned a 4.1 total rating/6 share. This means that approximately 4.1% of American households with television sets were tuned to UPN, while "North Star" was viewed by 6% of households watching television at the time.
These ratings are up slightly from "The Shipment" and "Twilight", both of which earned a 3.9/6 overnight rating.
That is the good news. The less good news, according to Mediaweek, is that Smallville on the WB beat Enterprise by 44 percent, finishing fourth in the timeslot while UPN finished sixth and last.
Both the WB and UPN were criticized by the Programming Insider for the low retention for their 9 p.m. shows, Angel and Jake 2.0.
Total ratings for this week will be available tomorrow. The overnight ratings for Wednesday night are here.
