Star Trek: Enterprise rebounded to its sweeps month numbers last night, rising a fraction from those of the last new episode, "Divergence."
"Bound" brought in a 1.8 rating/3 share in the fast national ratings, which attempt to predict the total ratings, according to Zap2It. This means that approximately 1.8% of American households with television sets were tuned to UPN during the 8 p.m. hour, representing 3% of households watching television at that time. "Divergence" had earned a 1.7/3 after a 1.8/3 for "Affliction" the week before.
NBC took the ratings victory last night on the strength of Law & Order: Trial by Jury, the night's highest-rated show with an 8.3/15. During Enterprise's time slot, NBC came out on top as well, with Dateline bringing in a 5.8/11. The season finale of 8 Simple Rules earned a 3.9/8 for FOX, while the WB trailed all the other networks with What I Like About You and a repeat of Reba.
UPN had a 1.7/3 rating for the night, trailing all five networks, including the WB which earned a 2.1/4.
