Saturday Primetime Ratings:

· Regarding Saturday's primetime Nielsens, note that the fast-affiliate ratings that came in at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT are not time zone-adjusted and are subject to revision for live sporting events.

· "SNL Vintage," with an encore of the May 13, 1989 telecast of "Saturday Night Live," hosted by Wayne Gretzky with musical guest Fine Young Cannibals, aired from 10-11 p.m. ET. As the preliminary numbers stand, "SNL Vintage" is averaging a 0.5/2 in adults 18-49 and 1.8 million viewers overall. "SNL Vintage" currently ranks #2 in the time period among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 and #1 in men 18-49 and men 25-54.
