    In Late-Night Metered-Market Ratings for Saturday Night:

    · An April 22 encore of “Saturday Night Live,” with host Tom Hanks and musical guest Lady Gaga, has averaged a 2.8 rating, 7 share in households in Nielsen’s 56 metered markets and a 1.1/6 in 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

    · Note that “SNL” adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with the 17 originals so far this season growing by +61% in 18-49 and +3.424 million persons or +46% in total viewers going from “live plus same day” Nielsens to “live plus seven day” figures. In L+SD, “SNL” this season has averaged a 2.18 rating in 18-49 and 7.505 million viewers overall, and in L+7, “SNL” grew to a 3.51 in 18-49 and 10.929 million viewers.

    Saturday Primetime Ratings:

    · Regarding Saturday’s primetime Nielsens, note that the fast-affiliate ratings that came in at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT are not time zone-adjusted and are subject to revision for live sporting events. As those preliminary numbers stand, NBC Sports 8-11 p.m. ET coverage of Stanley Cup Playoff hockey ranks #1 among the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49, as well as adults 18-34 and 25-54, plus all key adult-male demos.

    · In metered-market results, which are time zone-adjusted, last night’s NBC Sports 8:15-11 p.m. ET coverage of Stanley Cup Playoff hockey, featuring the Montreal Canadiens at the New York Rangers, posted a 1.6 rating, 3 share in household results from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters, ranking #1 in primetime among the Big 4 networks in 18-49 in those 25 markets.

    · From its first half-hour to its sixth, the NHL telecast grew +36% in metered-market households (from a 1.4 to a 1.9) and +57% in 18-49 in the local people meters (0.7 to 1.1).

    NOTE: All ratings are “live plus same day” from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

  2. What happened to the live,coast to coast,Saturday Night Live? Wasn’t it supposed to happen last night or did the hockey game mess it up? Does this mean they’re extending the season to accommodate the episodes because of the NHL? Also,my newspaper TV guide had a double run of The Toy Box listed for last night. Kind of glad they changed it.
