[via press release from NBC]

"SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" REBROADCAST IS THE #1 SHOW OF THE NIGHT IN 18-49 IN THE LOCAL PEOPLE METERS, GROWING +17% VS. LAST YEAR

EXCLUDING NFL NIGHTS, IT'S THE TOP-RATED "SNL" ENCORE IN METERED-MARKET HOUSEHOLDS IN NEARLY TWO YEARS

"DATELINE MYSTERY" DELIVERS ITS MOST-WATCHED EPISODE SINCE LAST MARCH

In Late-Night Metered-Market Ratings for Saturday Night:

· A Jan. 28 encore of "Saturday Night Live," with host Kristen Wiig and musical guest The xx, averaged a 3.5/9 in households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets and a 1.4/7 in 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Excluding the Jan. 7 rebroadcast, which benefited from an NFL Playoff overrun, it's the highest-rated "Saturday Night Live" encore in nearly two years in metered-market households (since Feb. 14, 2015, with an encore of the "SNL" series premiere with host George Carlin and musical guests Janis Ian and Billy Preston, 3.8).

· In 18-49 in the local people meters, last night's 1.4 equals "Saturday Night Live's" best for a rebroadcast, excluding the NFL-boosted Jan. 7 encore and a Dec. 31 rebroadcast that benefited from the New Year's Eve holiday, since the Feb. 14, 2015 encore of the "SNL" series premiere.

· Versus a rebroadcast on the same night last year, the Jan. 28 "SNL" is up +9% in 18-49 (3.5 vs. 3.2) and up +17% in 18-49 in the local people meters (1.4 vs. 1.2).

· Last night's "Saturday Night Live" encore was the #1 telecast of the night on the broadcast networks in 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating every Saturday primetime telecast on those nets in that category, and was tied for #1 for the night in metered-market households.

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals so far this season growing by +58% in 18-49 and +3.214 million persons or +43% in total viewers nationally going from "live plus same day" Nielsens to "live plus seven day" figures. In L+SD, "SNL" this season has averaged a 2.20 rating in 18-49 nationally and 7.400 million viewers overall, and in L+7, "SNL" grew to a 3.47 in 18-49 and 10.614 million viewers.

· Versus the same point last season, "SNL" originals are up +20% in 18-49 nationally (3.47 for 11 episodes this year vs. 2.89 for 10 last year, including a high-rated post-NFL Wild Card installment) and +1.977 million persons or +23% in total viewers (10.614 million vs. 8.637 million).

· The average 10.614 million viewers in L+7 makes this the show's most-watched season at this point in 23 years (versus prior seasons' original telecasts through comparable dates), best since 93-94 (10.833 million for that season's first 12 originals).

· The 3.47 average in L+7 adults 18-49 rating nationally average is the show's best performances in the demo at this point since 2008 (4.26 for that season's first 13 originals).

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