"The Council" showed a very small upturn in overnight ratings for Star Trek: Enterprise.

According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, "The Council" earned a 3.4 overnight rating/5 share. This means that approximately 3.4% of American households were tuned to UPN during the hour, while Enterprise was viewed by 5% of households watching television at the time.

These overnight ratings, which measure metered markets, are up .1 from those brought in last week by "E".

Enterprise was spared MediaWeek Programming Insider Marc Berman's loser's column. "Trekkies, take note: You'll know by next Thursday if Enterprise is coming back for a fourth season," Berman wrote, reporting that an estimated 3.35 million viewers tuned in last night.

Smallville, the competition on the WB, had a 4.7/7 overnight and double the viewers in the adult demographic.

Zap2It did not report the fast national rating for "The Council", but said that the WB had tied the 2.9/5 it earned last week and added that Enterprise came in six-tenths of a point lower, which would give it a 2.3. Two weeks ago "The Forgotten" had a 2.1/4 fast national rating.

MediaWeek's overnight ratings are here. Zap2It summarizes fast national data.
