The series finale of Star Trek: Enterprise brought little Friday the 13th luck to UPN, which finished very slightly ahead of the WB for the night, despite the fact that "These Are the Voyages..." managed only a tie for fifth place.
Enterprise earned a 2.0 rating/4 share for "Terra Prime" and a 2.4/4 for "These Are the Voyages...", according to Zap2It. This means that approximately 2% of American households with television sets were tuned to UPN during the 8 p.m. hour and 2.4% were tuned in at 9 p.m., representing 4% of households watching television at that time.
At 8, "Terra Prime" finished ahead of the WB's What I Like About You, which started off with only a 1.6/3, and Reba, which rebounded to a 1.9/4. At 9, UPN and The WB tied for last place as Enterprise went up against another episode of Reba and half an hour of Living with Fran. However, both networks were soundly beaten by CBS with Elvis bringing in the top ratings of the night, while NBC ran a two-hour Dateline (the usual 8 p.m. winner) scoring a 4.5/9 and ABC ran a double-header of America's Funniest Home Videos which earned a 4.8/9. FOX's rerun of The X-Men brought in a 2.3/5.
Fast national ratings attempt to predict total ratings, so full audience numbers will not be available until next week. "These Are the Voyages..." did not air last night in several markets that might affect its total numbers. However, it seems certain that they will be well below the 7.7 rating that Star Trek: Voyager earned for its finale "Endgame."
