Here are the highlights of the nine ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (4/22/17):

CBS (3.660 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T2) then was the most-watched network with a repeat "NCIS: Los Angeles" (3.682 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T4) followed by "Training Day" (3.241 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T4) and "48 Hours" (4.059 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.6, #2).

· "Saturday Night Live" ranked as the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in both metered-market households and in 18-49 in the local people meters, ahead of all primetime programs on those networks in both measures.

· "Saturday Night Live" earned its highest metered-market household rating since Feb. 6 (5.1 with host Larry David and musical guest The 1975) and highest 18-49 rating in the local people meters since Feb. 13 (2.3 with host Melissa McCarthy and musical guest Kanye West).
