"SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" MATCHES ITS HIGHEST 18-49 RATING SINCE MAY

HOSTED BY STEVE BUSCEMI AND FEATURING MUSICAL GUEST THE BLACK KEYS, 'SNL' TOPS EVERY SATURDAY PRIMETIME NON-SPORTS TELECAST ON ABC, CBS, NBC OR FOX SINCE JANUARY 2010

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - December 8, 2011 - The December 3 telecast of "Saturday Night Live" has equaled the show's highest adult 18-49 rating since last May, while earning the biggest "SNL" overall viewership since early October, according to "live plus same day" in-home viewing figures from Nielsen Media Research.

With a telecast hosted by Steve Buscemi and featuring musical guest The Black Keys, "Saturday Night Live" averaged a 2.5 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49 and 6.6 million viewers overall.

The 2.5 matches "Saturday Night Live's" season high, previously achieved on November 5 with an episode hosted by Charlie Day and featuring musical guest Maroon 5. It also ties the show's best 18-49 rating since May 21 (the season finale hosted by Justin Timberlake with musical guest Lady Gaga). This week's 6.6 million viewers overall is "SNL's" biggest audience in nine weeks (since October 1 with host Melissa McCarthy and musical guest Lady Antebellum).

The 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 for the December 3 edition of "Saturday Night Live" topped every Saturday non-sports primetime telecast on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox since January 16, 2010.
