Enterprise's shaky start to the season is now but a distant memory, with last week's 'Marauders' attracting 5.6 million viewers.

The episode scored a 3.6 rating / 6 share, according to final ratings data published in USA Today (via TrekWeb). This means approximately 3.6% of American households with television sets were tuned into Enterprise, while the episode was viewed by 6% of households watching television at the time.

Barring 'A Night In Sickbay's' season-high of 6.26 million viewers, the last time Enterprise broke the 5.5 million barrier was in April this year, when 'Oasis' had an audience of 5.65 million.

'Marauders' did well to score strong ratings, as it followed up on a repeat of the season premiere, 'Shockwave, Part II'. The original broadcast of that episode achieved a disappointing 3.2/5 final rating, even less than last year's finale. However, the repeat, which went to air just over a month after the original broadcast, still scored a 2.6/4.

Enterprise lead-out show The Twilight Zone brought in 2.86 million viewers, according to Mediaweek. The now-cancelled Haunted had the dubious distinction of being the week's least-watched series with only 1.65 million. UPN finished last for the week, down 16% in total viewers from this time last year, while chief competitor the WB was up 5%.
