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

· An encore "Saturday Night Live," with host Chris Rock and musical guest Prince, averaged a 2.5 rating, 7 share in household results in Nielsen's 56 metered markets and a 1.1/5 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters, hitting a 13-week high in 18-49 in the local people meters and matching the show's 13-week high in metered-market households.

· In 18-49 in the local people meters, it was the top-rated "Saturday Night Live" since June 20 (with host and musical guest Blake Shelton, 1.1) and equaled the top "SNL" in 16 weeks (since May 30, with host Cameron Diaz and musical guests Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars). In metered-market households, it was the best "SNL" since Aug. 29 (with host Taraji P. Henson and musical guest Mumford and Sons, 2.5) and matched the "SNL" high since June 20 (2.7).

· Versus the same night last year, the "Saturday Night Live" rebroadcast was up +9% in metered-market households (2.5 vs. 2.3) and up +22% in 18-49 rating in the local people meters (1.1 vs. 0.9).

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals this season growing by an average of +44% going from "live plus same day ratings" to "live plus seven day" in adults 18-49 (from a 1.84 rating to a 2.65).
