Enterprise scored its highest overnight ratings in months with "The Expanse" last night on UPN.
According to Zap2It, the season finale earned a 4.4 rating/7 share, compared with the 4.3/6 earned by "Bounty" the week before. This means that approximately 4.4% of American households with television sets were tuned to Enterprise, and that "The Expanse" was seen by 7% of households watching television at the time.
FOX's American Idol soared above all other shows, bringing in a 16.9 rating/27 share in the 8 p.m. timeslot. A country music awards special on CBS finished second, while Law & Order on NBC came in third.
The numbers for "The Expanse" remained below those achieved by "Canamar" during February sweeps, a 4.5/7 overnight rating. They are also lower than last year's season finale, "Shockwave Part I," which brought in a 4.9/8 for UPN.
The full overnight ratings are available at Zap2It. Final ratings will be published next week.
