ABC (3.529 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.9, #1) rode its "Saturday Night Football" (3.529 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.9, #1) franchise to another victory on Saturday.

NBC (1.987 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #2) was the silver draw with its duo of "The Croods" (1.911 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T2) and "SNL Vintage" (2.137 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T2).

And finally, FOX (0.869 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.2, #4) closed out the night with "CFB on FOX" (0.869 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.2, #T6).

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

· Versus primetime programming on the Big 4 networks Saturday night, the "SNL" rebroadcast is the #1 show of the night in metered-market households.

· The 2.7 in metered-market households and 0.9 in 18-49 in the local people meters matches "SNL's" averages for encore telecasts last season.


Here are the highlights of the nine ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (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).

· 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.
