Enterprise's "Exile" earned the show's lowest overnight ratings of the season last night as many television viewers tuned in the final game of a Major League Baseball championship game.
According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, "Exile" earned a 3.6 rating/5 share. This means that approximately 3.6% of American households with television sets were tuned to Enterprise, while the episode was viewed by 5% of households watching television at the time. Last week the show earned a 3.9/6 overnight rating.
FOX's ratings improved a very impressive 398 percent over their ratings on the night a year before. In primetime, the network brought in an average 20.4/29 score. NBC pulled The West Wing from its schedule, repeating two Law & Order shows to moderately high ratings.
Smallville brought in ratings certain to please The WB, earning a 6.0/9, a 38 percent increase over Dawson's Creek in the same timeslot a year ago. Marc Berman of MediaWeek called Smallville one of the night's winners, while adding, "Enterprise is inching closer to the loser's list."
Because overnights rate only large media markets, the numbers may change later in the week when full ratings become available. The complete article is available at Mediaweek.com.
