    “SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE” IS THE #1 SHOW OF THE NIGHT IN METERED-MARKET HOUSEHOLDS

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

    · The Jan. 20 telecast, hosted by Jessica Chastain and featuring musical guest Troye Sivan, has averaged a 4.3 rating, 10 share in “live plus same day” household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.8/8 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

    · “Saturday Night Live” is the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in metered-market households, ahead of all primetime programming on the broadcast networks, including ABC’s Warriors-Rockets NBA coverage. In 18-49 in the local people meters, “SNL” is tied with the basketball telecast as the #1 show of the night.

    · The Jan. 13 “SNL” aired live coast to coast (11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT) and was replayed at 11:30 in western markets. Note that these numbers under-report last night’s “SNL” results because they don’t include viewership from the show’s 11:30 replays in the Western U.S.

    · Note that “SNL” adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with this season’s first nine originals growing by +58% in 18-49 and +2.734 million persons or +40% in total viewers nationally going from “live plus same day” Nielsens to “live plus seven day” figures. In L+SD, “SNL” so far this season is averaging a 1.85 rating in 18-49 nationally and 6.880 million viewers overall, and in L+7, “SNL” is growing to a 2.92 in 18-49 and 9.614 million viewers.

    · This is the show’s #2 most-watched season in L+7 in nine years, since “SNL” averaged 10.365 viewers for originals at this point in 2008, trailing over that span only last year’s election-fueled average of 10.805 million

    Saturday Primetime Ratings:

    · Due to inconsistent start times across time zones, currently available fast-affiliate ratings are not reliable for NBC’s Saturday primetime programming.

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