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

· An encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Fred Armisen and musical guest Courtney Barnett, averaged a 2.4 rating, 6 share in household results from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 0.9/5 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· The Sept. 24 "Saturday Night Live" delivered the show's highest metered-market rating since July 30 (2.5 with host Amy Schumer and musical guest The Weekend) and equaled its highest 18-49 rating in the local people meters since June 25 (1.0 with host Matthew McConaughey and musical guest Adele).

· The Sept. 24 "SNL" matched the show's September 2015 average in metered-market households (2.4 vs 2.4).

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals this past season growing by +49% going from L+SD to L+7 in adults 18-49 (1.83 to 2.72) and +2.090 million persons in total viewers (6.051 million to 8.141 million).

FOX (3.395 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 1.2, #1) staked claim to the adults 18-49 crown on Saturday with its coverage of "CFB on FOX" (3.395 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 1.2, #1).

And finally, a repeat "The Carmichael Show" (1.568 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T6) and a new edition of "Premier Boxing Champions" (2.039 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T6) closed out the evening on NBC (1.961 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.5, #4).

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

It's "SNL's" second-highest 18-49 rating in the local people meters in 14 weeks.

· Excluding last week's 1.1 for a rebroadcast hosted by Chris Rock with musical guest Prince, it was the top 18-49 rating for "Saturday Night Live" in the local people meters since June 20 (with host and musical guest Blake Shelton, 1.1).

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals last 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).
