Here are the highlights of the six ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (9/7/19):

ABC (8.200 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 2.6, #1) was once again the network to beat with its coverage of "Saturday Night College Football" (8.200 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 2.6, #1).

FOX (2.093 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.5, #2) then was a distant second with its own "CFB on FOX" (2.093 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.5, #2).

Next up was CBS (2.774 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3) with repeats of "Blue Bloods" (2.067 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.2, #6), "48 Hours" (2.802 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T4) and another "48 Hours" (3.454 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #3).

And finally, NBC (1.292 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3) rounded out the night with the feature "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2" (1.292 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T4).

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

· A Sept. 7 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host and musical guests Halsey, has averaged a 2.1 rating, 6 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 0.6/4 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· The 0.6 in 18-49 matches the "SNL" high since June 1 (0.7 for a rebroadcast with host Emma Thompson and musical guest Jonas Brothers).

· The Sept. 7 "Saturday Night Live" encore ranks as the #2 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49 in the local people meters, topping all primetime programs on those nets for the night except ABC's LSU-Texas college football telecast.

And finally, NBC (2.456 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) closed out the night with "America's Got Talent" (2.236 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T5) and "Dateline Saturday Night Mystery" (2.898 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T3).

· This week's "SNL" scored the show's highest metered-market household rating since June 2 (2.8 with host Donald Glover and musical guest Glover as Childish Gambino).

· The Sept. 8 "Saturday Night Live" is the #1 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in metered-market households, topping all primetime shows on those nets.
