'Fury' Final And 'Collective' Overnight Ratings

As outlined in two new reports at the Star Trek Nielsen Ratings Information Database, the two latest Voyager reruns, 'Fury' and 'Collective', did not do nearly as well as the first rerun of the year, 'Tsunkatse'. Here's a snippet from the final ratings report for 'Fury':

After last week's 'Tsunkatse' rerun scored a respectable 2.8 rating, 'Fury' performed well below the mark for Voyager, taking in only a 2.1 rating / 4 share. This makes 'Fury' the lowest-rated Voyager repeat ever, below even 'Unforgettable' in the fifth season.

Of course, much of this was to blame on Voyager's fierce timeslot competition. Not only did 'Felicity' air its highly-anticipated season finale, but, more importantly, Al Gore conceded the U.S. elections at 9:00pm, undoubtedly drawing a lot of viewers away. Performing against first-run episodes, Voyager was UPN's 6th show of the week, behind 'WWF Smackdown!' and its Monday night urban comedy block.

A bit more can be found in the full final ratings report. 'Collective', yesterday's Voyager episode, also didn't do that well, according to the early overnight ratings (measuring only part of the country):

Taking in a 3.3 rating / 5 share, this year's third rerun had a slightly lower overnight rating than 'Fury' last week, which scored a 3.8/6.

In its timeslot, 'Collective' also landed in 6th place, below a special Christmas episode of 'Gilmore Girls' (3.9/6) and the Fox TV movie 'How To Marry A Billionaire' (5.1/8). These were both completely new content, so it's not surprising that a Voyager rerun would lose out.
