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

An encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," hosted by Melissa McCarthy with musical guest Lady Antebellum, averaged a 3.6/9 in metered-market households.

"SNL" matched its 3.6 rating for the same night last year.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, the "Saturday Night Live" encore averaged a 2.0 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49, making it the #1 telecast of the night in the Local People Meters, topping all primetime programming on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.
