By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

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 (10/5/13):

ABC (6.601 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 2.2, #1) led the college football race on Saturday with its coverage of "College Football: Ohio State at Northwestern" (6.601 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 2.2, #1).

NBC (3.240 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T2) and FOX (2.330 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T2) then shared the number two spot with their respective telecast of "College Football: Arizona St. vs. Notre Dame" (3.240 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T3) and "College Football: TCU at Oklahoma" (2.330 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T3).

And finally, CBS (3.612 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.7, #4) closed out the evening with encores of "The Millers" (3.269 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #5), "We Are Men" (2.898 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.6, #6) and "Hostages" (2.863 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.5, #7) plus a new "48 Hours" (4.891 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.9, #2).

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

· Despite a 27-minute delay in its start time due to a football overrun, "Saturday Night Live," with host and musical guest Miley Cyrus (4.5/13 in metered-market households from midnight-1:30 a.m. ET [actual start time was 11:57 p.m. ET], 2.7/14 in adults 18-49 in the Local People Meters) has equaled the show's top 18-49 rating (2.7) in the Local People Meters since April 13 (with host Vince Vaughn and musical guest Miguel). The 2.7 ties both last week's season premiere (with host Tina Fey and musical guest Arcade Fire) and the show's May 18 season finale (with host Ben Affleck and musical guest Kanye West). The 4.5 in metered-market households is within 4% of last week's season-premiere 4.7 despite this week's 27-minute delay.

· Versus the same night last year, "Saturday Night Live" is up 23% in 18-49 ratings in the Local People Meters (2.7 vs. 2.2 on October 6, 2012) and is matching the year-ago 4.5 rating in metered-market households, despite the 27-minute delay in this year's start time.

· "Saturday Night Live" ranks as the #1 telecast of the night on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in 18-49 rating in the Local People Meters, outscoring all primetime programs on those networks.

· National ratings, including viewer totals, for last night's "Saturday Night Live" are due from Nielsen on Thursday, October 10.
