By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

Primetime Preliminary Fast National Nielsen Data
(includes all DVR playback through 3:00 am)

Here are the highlights of the seven ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (11/12/16):

ABC (5.738 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.7, #1) was the network to beat on Saturday with its presentation of "Saturday Night College Football" (5.738 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.7, #1).

The silver then went to FOX (3.023 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.9, #2) with its own "CFB on FOX" (3.023 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.9, #2) coverage.

Next up was NBC (3.803 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #3) and a new "Dateline Saturday Night Mystery" (4.088 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #5) plus an encore "SNL Vintage" (3.233 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T3).

And finally, repeats of "NCIS: Los Angeles" (3.685 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T6), "NCIS: New Orleans" (3.743 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T6) and a new "48 Hours" (5.085 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T3) closed out the night on CBS (4.171 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.6, #4).

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

· The Nov. 12 edition of "Saturday Night Live" has scored the show's highest overnight results so far this season and its top adult 18-49 rating in Nielsen's local-people-meter markets since December 2013.

· Last night's "Saturday Night Live," with host Dave Chappelle and musical guest A Tribe Called Quest, generated a 6.2 rating, 16 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 3.9/19 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· The 3.9 in 18-49 is the show's highest local-people-meter result since Dec. 21, 2013 (3.9 with host Jimmy Fallon and musical guest Justin Timberlake).


Here are the highlights of the six ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (11/14/15):

ABC (5.471 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 1.7, #1) was still the demo champ on Saturday with its coverage of "Saturday Night College Football" (5.471 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 1.7, #1).

The silver then went to CBS (6.362 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.3, #2) with a special "48 Hours" (4.641 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 1.0, #3) and its coverage of "Campaign 2016: Democratic Debate" (7.222 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.5, #2).

Next up was NBC (3.894 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #3) and its duo of "Dateline NBC" (4.336 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.8, #4) and "Saturday Night Live" (3.011 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.6, #5).

And finally, "CFB on FOX" (1.904 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.5, #6) on FOX (1.904 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.5, #4) closed out the night.

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

· The Nov. 14 telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Elizabeth Banks and musical guest Disclosure (4.0 rating, 10 share in households in the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research, a 1.9/9 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters) ranked as the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating all primetime programs on those nets.

· The Nov. 14 "Saturday Night Live" equaled the show's average for last season in metered-market households (4.0 vs. 4.0).

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals nationally growing by +51% so far this season going from "live plus same day" ratings to "live plus seven day" results in adult 18-49 (from a 1.75 rating to a 2.65).
