AN ENCORE OF THE ORIGINAL "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" FROM 1975 SCORES THE TOP RATING FOR AN "SNL" REBROADCAST IN MORE THAN A YEAR

PRIMETIME'S "AN SNL VALENTINE" HITS A THREE-YEAR TIME-PERIOD HIGH FOR NBC, EXCLUDING SPORTS-RELATED PROGRAMMING

"DATELINE SATURDAY NIGHT MYSTERY" IS THE #1 BIG 4 PRIMETIME TELECAST IN TOTAL VIEWERS

In Late-Night Metered-Market Household Averages for Saturday Night:

· An encore telecast of the Oct. 11, 1975 series premiere of "Saturday Night Live," with host George Carlin and musical guests Janis Ian and Billy Preston, averaged a 3.8 rating, 10 share in household results in Nielsen's 56 metered markets and a 1.6/7 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with Local People Meters,

· In metered-market households, it's the top-rated "SNL" encore since Jan. 11, 2014 (with host Jimmy Fallon and musical guest Justin Timberlake, 3.8/9) and equaled the top "SNL" rebroadcast since Jan. 5, 2013 (with host Louis C.K. and musical guest fun on the night of an NFL overrun, 4.6/12).

· "SNL" is the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49 in the Local People Meters, ahead of all primetime programs on the Big 4 networks in that key measure.

· The NBC Special "An SNL Valentine" (1.3/5 in 18-49, 5.1 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET) captured NBC's highest 18-49 and total-viewer results in the time period, excluding sports-related programming, in more than three years, since Dec. 24, 2011 ("It's a Wonderful Life," 1.8 in 18-49, 5.6 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m.).

· "An SNL Valentine" was the night #1 primetime telecast on the Big 4 networks in adults 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, as well as all key adult-female demos, and is currently tied with Fox's NASCAR Racing for #1 in all key adult-male demos.
