IN 18-49, 'SNL' OUTSCORES EVERY SATURDAY PRIMETIME NON-SPORTS TELECAST ON ABC, CBS, NBC OR FOX SINCE MARCH 2008

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. � December 16, 2010 � The December 11 edition of "Saturday Night Live" has set season highs for the show in adult 18-49 rating and total viewers.

The 2.7 rating for "Saturday Night Live" is the show's highest since May 15 with last season's finale, hosted by Alec Baldwin and featuring musical guest Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.
