Here are the highlights of the eight ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (7/2/16):

NBC (5.238 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.1, #1) was the network to beat on Saturday with its primetime portion of "Sprint Cup: Daytona" (5.238 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.1, #1).

ABC (2.775 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T2) then was the number two draw with new episodes from "People's List" (2.003 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6) and "In an Instant" (3.162 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3).

Next up was CBS (2.325 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T2) with the return of "Angel from Hell" (1.748 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6), a second "Angel from Hell" (1.577 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6), a repeat "48 Hours" (2.385 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) and another "48 Hours" (2.927 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.5, #2).

And finally, FOX (2.004 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T2) closed out the night with its weekly "Baseball Night in America" (2.004 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3).

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

· The July 2 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with hosts Tina Fey & Amy Poehler and musical guest Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, averaged a 2.4 rating, 7 share in household results from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 0.8/5 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· "Saturday Night Live" ranks as the #1 non-sports telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in both metered-market households and adults 18-49 in the local people meters, ahead of all primetime entertainment programming on those nets, and #2 overall in both measures behind only NBC's primetime NASCAR coverage.

· The July 2 "SNL" is up +4% versus the show's July 2015 average in metered-market households (2.4 vs 2.3 for July 2015), despite this weekend's holiday distractions.

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals this past season growing by +49% going from L+SD to L+7 in adults 18-49 (1.83 to 2.72) and +2.090 million persons in total viewers (6.051 million to 8.141 million).
