Enterprise Gets Limited Renewal?

UPN will green-light a fourth season of Star Trek: Enterprise, but will
only give the struggling SF series a 12-episode commitment, according to a
rumor on the SyFy Portal Web site. Citing two sources, SyFy Portal added
that Enterprise could earn another 12-episode order if the ratings for the
initial dozen episodes merit it.

The site noted that the retooled Enterprise, bolstered by heightened action
and the Xindi arc, has performed reasonably well against such stiff
competition as the Fox juggernaut American Idol and The WB's popular
Smallville. SyFy Portal noted that it was still unclear whether or not
longtime Trek executive producers Rick Berman and Brannon Braga would
continue to run the show if it does return. A final announcement about the
fate of Enterprise is expected within the next two weeks.

Who?? Anyone who believes this story or UPN numbskulls for going with
yet another season without first ditching Beavis & Butthead. ;-)

I have talked to a few people who have said it's just a rumour and an untrue
one at that.

You're wrong about the ratings. The Mullets ran about a 1.2, and was
literally among the five lowest rated network shows in the country.

Enterprise ran a 4.2 with a six share, for 2002-2003, and the numbers for
this season are trending slightly higher.
