For the third week in a row, Star Trek: Enterprise's fast nationals held steady, bringing in a 1.8/3 rating at 8 p.m. for UPN.
"Affliction", according to Zap2It, earned a 1.8 rating and a 3 share last night. This means that approximately 1.8% of American households with television sets were tuned to Enterprise during the 8 p.m. hour, representing 3% of households watching television at that time.
These are identical numbers to those for "The Aenar", which in the final ratings had the highest audience this year for Enterprise. In the 8 p.m. hour yesterday, NBC's Dateline took top fast national marks with a 6.8/12, a very slight decline from the week before. The WB's What I Like About You and Reba finished ahead of Enterprise as did shows on ABC, CBS and FOX in the hour.
Though Viacom's CBS had been dominating Friday nights on the strength of its new series Numb3rs, NBC won the night with top ratings for crossover episodes of Medical Investigation and Third Watch (an hour of which was directed by Roxann Dawson, Star Trek: Voyager's B'Elanna Torres, who has also directed several episodes of Voyager and Enterprise).
