ABC (2.370 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2) then was a close second with its weekly "NBA Countdown" (2.031 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.5, #5) and "NBA Saturday Primetime on ABC" (2.438 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2).

Next up was NBC (3.339 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.6, #3) with an encore of "America's Got Talent: The Champions" (3.562 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T3) and a vintage "Saturday Night Live" (2.891 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T3).

And finally on FOX (1.090 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.2, #4), repeats of "9-1-1" (1.386 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #6) and "The Passage" (0.793 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.2, #7) rounded out the evening.

In late-night metered market ratings (via NBC's press release):

· The Feb. 9 telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host and musical guest Halsey, averaged a 4.7 rating, 11 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.9/10 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· These are the show's second highest metered-market ratings since "SNL's" Sept. 29, 2018 season premiere, trailing over that span only the Dec. 15, 2018 edition (hosted by Matt Damon with musical guests Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, 4.8 in metered-market households, 2.0 in 18-49 in the local people meters). The season premiere, with host Adam Driver and musical guest Kanye West, earned a 4.8 in households and a 2.3 in 18-49.

· The Feb. 9 "Saturday Night Live" ranks as the #1 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in both metered-market households and 18-49 in the local people meters, topping all primetime shows on those nets, including ABC's primetime Thunder-Rockets NBA Basketball coverage and CBS' inaugural Alliance of American Football telecast featuring the San Diego Fleet at the San Antonio Commanders and the Atlanta Legends at the Orlando Apollos.

· Versus what "Saturday Night Live" averaged with originals for the month of February last year, the Feb. 9 telecast is up +2% in metered-market households (4.7 vs. 4.6).
