After three straight weeks of identical fast national ratings, Star Trek: Enterprise experienced a slight drop for its Klingon arc last night.
On a day when fans rallied in Los Angeles and around the world to save the series, the show's numbers dropped from a 1.8 rating/3 share for the previous week's "Affliction" to a 1.7/3 for its sequel, "Divergence", according to Zap2It. This means that approximately 1.7% of American households with television sets were tuned to UPN during the 8 p.m. hour, representing 3% of households watching television at that time.
ABC and CBS split the ratings victory last night, as ABC had the most adult viewers while CBS had the most households tuned in over the course of the evening. In Enterprise's time slot, Dateline finished first for NBC as it usually does with a 6.1/11 fast national rating. The WB's What I Like About You and a repeat of Reba averaged a 2.1/4.
UPN's fellow Viacom network CBS returned to the top spot at 10 p.m. with Numb3rs, which earned a 7.8/14.
