'Jake' pulls OK numbers for UPN

12 September 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

UPN's new Wednesday lineup got off to a so-so start, with new series Jake 2.0 showing promising retention of its Enterprise lead-in. In its third season premiere at 8 p.m., Enterprise (4.1 million viewers, 1.6/6) was up 8% from the series' second season finale in May, but down 16% in total viewers and 30% in adults 18-49 from the debut of the series' second season in fall 2002. Jake 2.0 (3.7 million, 1.3/4) held on to 90% of its Enterprise lead-in in total viewers and went up slightly in such key UPN demographics as 18-34 (1.2/4, up 9%) and 12-34 (1.1/4, up 10%). The premiere of Jake 2.0 didn't measure up to the debut of The Twilight Zone (4.6 million, 2.0/5 in 18-49) in the same slot last year, but the big opening for The Twilight Zone, which benefited from its strong name recognition, was followed by a steep decline, and Jake 2.0's audience was the largest for UPN in the time period since October. »
