FOX (3.05 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 1.0, #2) then claimed the silver with a full hour of "Cops" (4.31 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 1.4, #2) and "Terra Nova" (1.80 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T5).

Next up was CBS (4.15 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.9, #T3) with repeats of a full hour of "How I Met Your Mother" (2.61 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T5), "Unforgettable" (3.96 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.8, #T5) and a new "48 Hours Mystery" (5.87 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.2, #3).

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

An encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," hosted by Melissa McCarthy with musical guest Lady Antebellum, averaged a 3.6/9 in metered-market households. "SNL" delivered its highest metered-market household rating for a rebroadcast since July 16 (with host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga). "SNL" matched its 3.6 rating for the same night last year.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, the "Saturday Night Live" encore averaged a 2.0 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49, making it the #1 telecast of the night in the Local People Meters, topping all primetime programming on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. "SNL" scored its highest 18-49 rating in the Local People Meters for a rebroadcast since July 16 (with host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga) and equaled its highest LPM rating for an encore since February 26 (with host Anne Hathaway and musical guest Florence + The Machine).
