Here are the highlights of the eight ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (2/22/20):

ABC (1.566 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #1) claimed the demo crown on Saturday with its telecast of "NBA Saturday Primetime on ABC" (1.566 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T1).

CBS (3.114 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T2) was the most-watched broadcaster with "NCIS" (3.498 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3), "48 Hours" (2.771 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3) and half-hours of "48 Hours" (3.111 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3) and "48 Hours" (3.033 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3).

Next up was NBC (2.119 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T2) with "America's Got Talent: The Champions" (2.045 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3) and "Dateline Saturday Night Mystery" (2.266 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T1).

And finally, FOX (0.955 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T2) closed out the night with a new "Almost Family" (0.986 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3) and the season finale of "Almost Family" (0.925 million viewers, #9; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3).

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

· A Feb. 22 encore edition of "Saturday Night Live," with host Adam Driver and musical guest Halsey, has averaged a 2.5 rating in "live plus same day" household results from 44 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Versus primetime programming on the Big 4 networks Saturday night, the "SNL" rebroadcast is the #1 show of the night in metered-market households.

· Note that current metered-market results are not compatible with data issued before Oct. 5 due to changes in Nielsen methodology.


Here are the highlights of the nine ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (2/23/19):

ABC (2.660 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.7, #1) led the demo race on Saturday with its weekly editions of "NBA Countdown" (1.999 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T4) and "NBA Saturday Primetime on ABC" (2.793 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.8, #1).

Next up was CBS (3.420 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.4, #3) with a new "Ransom" (2.749 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6) followed by a repeat "48 Hours" (3.234 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T4) and a new "48 Hours" (4.275 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.6, #2).

And finally, FOX (1.574 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #4) closed out the evening of repeats of "9-1-1" (1.699 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6) and "Proven Innocent" (1.448 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6).

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

· Due to the overrun of NBC's primetime NHL coverage, reliable metered-market ratings for last night's "Saturday Night Live" encore are not currently available.
