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

· An April 29 encore of "Saturday Night Live," with host Aziz Ansari and musical guest Big Sean, averaged a 2.8 rating, 7 share in households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets and a 1.1/6 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 +8% in metered-market households (2.8 vs. 2.6).

· Last night's "Saturday Night Live" encore was the #1 non-sports show of the night on the broadcast networks in 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating every Saturday primetime entertainment telecast on those nets in that key measure.
