And finally, CBS (2.396 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #4) closed out the evening with a new "Angel from Hell" (2.080 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.4, #6), a second "Angel from Hell" (1.915 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T7), a repeat "NCIS: Los Angeles" (2.454 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T7) and a special "48 Hours" (2.737 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T3).

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

· The July 9 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Melissa McCarthy and musical guest Kanye West, averaged a 2.2 rating, 6 share in household results from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 0.9/5 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· "Saturday Night Live" ranks as the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49 in the local people meters, ahead of all primetime programming on those nets.

· 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).
