Star Trek: Enterprise finished its season on a positive note as its overnight ratings tied their highest levels in 2004.
According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, this week's Enterprise episode earned a 3.7 overnight rating/6 share. This means that approximately 3.7% of American households were tuned to UPN, while "Zero Hour" was viewed by 6% of households watching television at the time.
"Harbinger", "Doctor's Orders" and "Azati Prime" earned the same overnight numbers.
Though American Idol led FOX to a ratings landslide, bringing in a 18.9/28 in the overnights, Enterprise came in fifth for the hour rather than its usual last place, partly because Smallville has finished its season already on the WB, where Ace Ventura: Pet Detective finished last with a 2.4/3.
MediaWeek Programming Insider Marc Berman put Enterprise's UPN leadout, Cheating Death, Stealing Life: The Eddie Guerrero Story, in the loser's column with a 1.6/2 overnight rating.
Zap2It reported a rise in the fast national ratings as well, giving "Zero Hour" a 2.5/4, an improvement over last week's total rating of 2.3 for "Countdown". Fast nationals predict the total ratings, so these numbers may change slightly once sports preemptions and other factors are taken into account.
