Primetime Preliminary Fast National Nielsen Data
(includes all DVR playback through 3:00 am)

Here are the highlights of the nine ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (11/23/19):

ABC (3.244 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.8, #1) held off the competition on Saturday with its telecast of "Saturday Night College Football" (3.244 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.8, #1).

FOX (3.011 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2) was also in the hunt with its own presentation of "CFB on FOX" (3.011 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2).

Next up was NBC (2.475 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #3) and its mix of "The Voice" (2.069 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6), "Dateline Saturday Night Mystery" (2.793 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T3) and "SNL Vintage" (2.563 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T3).

And finally, CBS (2.548 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.3, #4) closed out the night with repeats of "The Neighborhood" (2.235 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6), "Bob (Hearts) Abishola" (2.067 million viewers, #9; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6) and "NCIS: New Orleans" (2.350 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6) plus a new "48 Hours" (3.143 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #5).

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

· The Nov. 23 edition of "Saturday Night Live," with host Will Ferrell and musical guest King Princess, has averaged a 4.3 rating in "live plus same day" household results from 44 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 2.0 rating in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Note that current metered-market results are not compatible with data issued before Oct. 5 due to changes in Nielsen methodology.

· The Nov. 23 "Saturday Night Live" has outrated all five prior originals since Nielsen changed its methodology Oct. 5, ranking #1 among those telecasts in both metered-market households and in 18-49 in the local people meters.

· Versus primetime programming on the Big 4 networks Saturday night, "SNL" is the #1 show of the night in metered-market households and in 18-49 in the local people meters.


Here are the highlights of the eight ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (11/24/18):

ABC (6.654 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.6, #1) was the network to beat on Saturday with "Saturday Night College Football" (6.654 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.6, #1).

CBS (2.639 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.5, #2) then was the silver draw with its mix of "Robbie the Reindeer: Hooves of Fire" (2.251 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T3), "Robbie the Reindeer: Legend of the Lost Tribe" (1.939 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T5), "The Story of Santa Claus" (1.967 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T5) and a new "48 Hours" (3.856 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.6, #2).

Next up was NBC (2.610 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) with an encore of "The National Dog Show Presented by Purina" (2.726 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T5) and a vintage "Saturday Night Live" (2.377 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T3).

And finally, FOX (1.710 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) closed out the evening with its own "CFB on FOX" (1.710 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T5).

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

· A Nov. 24 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Awkwafina and musical guest Travis Scott, has averaged a 2.6 rating, 7 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 0.9/5 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Last night's 0.9 is the high for a regular-slot "Saturday Night Live" encore in 18-49 in the local people meters since June 2 (1.0 with host Donald Glover and musical guest Glover as Childish Gambino) (excludes an Oct. 27 11:30-12:30 "Halloween" special).

· The Nov. 24 "Saturday Night Live" is the #2 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in 18-49 in the local people meters, topping all primetime shows on those nets except ABC's Notre Dame-USC college football coverage (2.1).
