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

· An April 1 encore of "Saturday Night Live," with host Alec Baldwin and musical guest Ed Sheeran, has averaged a 3.3 rating, 8 share in households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets and a 1.2/7 in 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Versus what the show averaged last year with April encores, last night's "Saturday Night Live" is up +27% in metered-market households (3.3 vs. 2.6). In fact, the 3.3 rating beats every rebroadcast "SNL" of last season.
