It's the highest metered-market household rating for an "SNL" rebroadcast since April 1 (3.3 with host Alec Baldwin and musical guest Ed Sheeran)

· Last night's "Saturday Night Live" encore is the #1 show of the night on the broadcast networks in both metered-market household and 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating every Saturday primetime telecast on those nets in both measures.
