As previously reported, ever since 'Unimatrix Zero, Part Two' turned in a highly successful performance at the start of the season, Voyager's overnight ratings (measuring only the top 47 television markets of the country) have been falling. Fortunately, according to a report we just posted at the Star Trek Nielsen Ratings Database, 'Body and Soul' finally brok that trend:

With the elections over, Voyager's overnight ratings finally experienced the first week-to-week rise since the beginning of this season, with 'Body and Soul' earning a 4.6 rating / 7 share (last week: 4.2/7). That is level with the 'Repression' overnight ratings from four weeks ago.

In its timeslot, Voyager did manage to win 4th place again, rising above both 'Felicity' on the WB and 'The $treet' on FOX. Felicity is continuing to show its newfound strength this season, earning a 4.0/6, while The $treet only got a 3.6/5, and seems to be rapidly approaching cancellation.

A look at what this might mean for the final ratings, expected on Tuesday, can be found in the full report.
