· National ratings, including viewer totals, for last night's "Saturday Night Live" encore are due from Nielsen on Wednesday.

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals so far this season growing by +59% in 18-49 and +3.572 million persons or +45% in total viewers nationally going from "live plus same day" Nielsens to "live plus seven day" figures.

· Versus the same point last season, "SNL" originals are up +39% in 18-49 nationally (3.80 vs. 2.73) and +3.017 million persons or +35% in total viewers (11.574 million vs. 8.557 million).

· The average 11.574 million viewers in L+7 makes this the show's most-watched season at this point in 24 years (versus prior seasons' original telecasts through comparable dates), best since 1992 (11.754 million for that season's first six originals).

· The 3.80 average in L+7 adults 18-49 rating nationally average is the show's best performances in the demo at this point since 2008 (4.59).

Saturday Primetime Ratings:

An encore of Thursday afternoon's telecast of "The National Dog Show Presented by Purina" (0.5/2 in 18-49, 3.1 million viewers overall from 8-10 p.m. ET):

· Is close to rounding up to a 0.6 (currently reporting a 0.54 in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings).

· Maintained 100% of the event's last Saturday primetime rebroadcast in adult 18-49 rating (0.5 vs. 0.5 on Saturday, Nov. 29, 2014).

· Ranked #2 in the slot among the Big 4 networks in total viewers.

"SNL Vintage," with an encore of the Nov. 18, 1989 telecast of "Saturday Night Live" with host Woody Harrelson and musical guest David Byrne, averaged a 0.5/2 in 18-49 and 2.3 million viewers overall from 10-11 p.m. ET.
