'Sickbay's' final rating was a 3.9/6, meaning approximately 3.9% of American households with television sets were tuned into Enterprise, while the episode was viewed by 6% of households watching television at the time.
These figures represented Enterprise's highest viewership since 'Sleeping Dogs' aired on January 30; that episode also received a 3.9/6 final rating. Adding to the success, 'Sickbay' netted a 3.1 rating / 9 share in the key adults 18-49 demographic.

Fellow Viacom network CBS won the week in overall viewers, while NBC won the adults 18-49 demographic.
