Yes, It Can Get Worse.. 2nd Episode Places 5th In Ratings
By Reality TV World staff, 09/27/2001
In a tale of two ships, 'Enterprise' sunk 'Love Cruise' -- and just about everything else -- in Wednesday's overnight ratings.
'Enterprise,' airing 8-10PM, averaged a 9.1/12, but lost the 9PM hour to NBC's 'West Wing' score of 10.4/15. ABC's one-hour season premiere of 'The Drew Carey Show' only mustered a 6.6/10, but took third place in the 9PM hour. The third episode of 'The Amazing Race' dipped sharply to a 6.0/9 for 4th place in the 9PM hour, while 'Love Cruise' finished in 5th place with 5.7/9 score.
But hey, 'Love Cruise' can say that it kicked some of The WB's 'The Indian in the Cupboard' animated ass -- it only scored a 2.4/3. Thank god for small victories.
NBC still managed to take the No. 1 spot in the overall overnight metered market ratings on Wednesday, averaging a 9.9 rating/15 share (last week, 8.3/13), but due to 'Enterprise,' underdog weblet UPN snagged second in the overnight metered market ratings with an extraordinary (for them) 9.1/13. ABC came in third with a 7.7/12, with CBS following in fourth with a 6.7/10. FOX slipped to fifth place, 5.6/8, while The WB trailed behind in sixth with a 2.4/3.
