Star Trek: Enterprise had another dismal ratings night, though part two of the season premiere narrowly beat What I Like About You and Grounded For Life on the WB.
The fast national ratings at Zap2It indicate that Enterprise brought in a 1.7 rating/3 share for UPN. This means that 1.7% of American households with televisions were tuned in to "Storm Front, Part Two", representing 4% of homes with televisions turned on during the 8 p.m. hour.
Last week the show received a 2.0 rating/4 share in the fast national ratings despite pre-emptions in several areas for major league baseball coverage. Last night's Yankees-Red Sox playoff game was rained out. NBC's Dateline won Enterprise's time slot with a 6.4/12.
These ratings suggest that Enterprise has lost nearly a third of its viewers since the third season finale, "Zero Hour", which earned a 2.5/4 fast national rating. It also represents nearly a fifteen percent drop from last week's season premiere, "Storm Front, Part One."
Although UPN finished ahead of the WB for the 8 p.m. hour, it finished last for the night with a 1.5 overall fast national rating. The WB brought in a 2.1. Final ratings will be available sometime next week.
