UPN seemed to have been forgotten by viewers last night as Star Trek: Enterprise's viewership remained near its season lows while its new lead-out brought in dismal numbers.
According to Mediaweek.com's Programming Insider, "The Forgotten" earned a 3.3 overnight rating/5 share. This means that approximately 3.3% of American households were tuned to UPN, while Enterprise was viewed by 5% of households watching television at the time. These numbers are up from the 3.1 earned last week by "Damage."
However, Zap2It reported a fast national rating of 2.1/4, a slight drop from the 2.2/4 brought in last week by "Damage" and a half-point below the 2.6/4 earned by "Azati Prime".
UPN's Smallville again earned a 4.4/7 overnight, the same as last week. NBC and FOX split overall victory for the evening, with the former winning the overnight ratings competition while the latter brought in the most viewers in the adult demographic. FOX's That 70's Show and American Idol continued to dominate the 8 p.m. hour.
Programming insider Marc Berman did take Enterprise out of the loser's column for the week, describing the series as "on-the-fence", while new lead-out show I'm Still Alive remained among yesterday's losers, beaten in the ratings by the WB's already-cancelled Angel.
