'Critical Care' Pegs Back Ratings LossBy Amy

Courtesy of the Star Trek Nielsen Database, both the weekly ratings from the repeat of telemovie 'Flesh and Blood' and the overnights for last night's 'Critical Care' are out. Again, there are no real surprises, save the repeat of 'Critical Care' did better than expected.
In its second week of repeats, Voyager managed to post a small gain, the 3.4/ 5 this week for a repeat of 'Critical Care' up .4 from the first hour of last week's telemovie, 'Flesh and Blood' (3.0/4 with a 3.3/ 5 overall).
However, as expected, Voyager took a nose-dive in the weekly ratings with the beginning of repeats for the second time this season. 'Flesh and Blood', posted a 2.4/4, down a full rating point from the previous week's episode, 'Human Error'. This is also down .4 from the first episode in the last batch of repeats, 'Tsunkatse', which aired the 6th of December 2000, but is, by the same measure, comparable to last year's 'Barge of the Dead' repeat.
