The final night of November sweeps went to CBS yesterday as many networks shuffled their lineups to accomodate for traditionally low viewership the night before the Thanksgiving holiday.
According to Zap2It's fast national ratings, Star Trek: Enterprise's "Carpenter Street" episode earned a 2.3 rating/4 share. This means that approximately 2.3% of American households with television sets were tuned to UPN, while Enterprise was viewed by 4% of households watching television at the time.
In last week's fast nationals, "Similitude" earned a 2.8/4 fast national rating which rose to a 3.0/5 total rating. These should not be confused with Nielsen's overnight ratings, measured by metered markets in large urban areas, which were not available by 3 p.m. EST today.
The WB chose not to air Smallville, instead showing the film Josie and the Pussycats which finished last for the 8 p.m. hour. Thus, despite lower ratings, Enterprise finished fifth instead of sixth for the first time in weeks.
UPN's WWE special The Stone Cold Truth at 9 in Jake 2.0's usual slot kept the network in fifth place for the night.
CBS, which is owned by Viacom as is UPN, is expected to be declared the victor for November sweeps when total ratings become available for the period.
The fast national ratings for Wednesday night are available at Zap2It. Total ratings should be posted tomorrow.
