Thursday Final Nationals: ‘SNL: Weekend Update Summer Edition’ Significantly Improves NBC Summer Time Slot

On this first summer Thursday night affected by NFL preseason telecasts preempting network shows in various markets, CBS placed first in total viewers (4.35 million), adults 18-49 (1.1 rating/5 share), adults 18-34 (0.8/4) and adults 25-54 (1.4/5), thanks to “Big Brother 19”.

The debut of “Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update Summer Edition” on NBC ranked as the #2 show of the night in adults 18-49, behind only CBS’ “Big Brother 19” and had built on its lead-in “The Wall” by +71 percent in 18-49 (with a 1.2 rating vs. a 0.7).

It also grew +50 percent compared to NBC’s average in the timeslot last summer in adults 18-49 (with a 1.2 rating vs. a 0.8, Live+Same Day non-sports) and +1.8 million persons or +61 percent in total viewers (4.705 million vs. 2.917 million).
