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

· The 3.6 in 18-49 is also the #1 rating of the week to date in the local people meters, topping all primetime programs thus far this week.

· The average 10.600 million viewers in L+7 makes this the show's most-watched season at this point in 22 years (versus prior seasons' original telecasts through comparable dates), best since 94-95 (10.620 million for that season's first 11 originals).

· The 3.46 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).
