In total viewers, "Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday" topped all of NBC's results in the time slot last season. In a competitive time period versus Fox's "X Factor," ABC's "Wipeout" and CBS's "Big Bang Theory" encore, "Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday" tied for #2 in the slot among ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and CW in adults 18-34 and was #2 outright among those networks in women 18-34.

"Parks" matched its highest 18-49 rating since March 8 (while it was still airing in the 8:30 half-hour) and delivered its biggest overall audience since that same date. Against the concluding half-hours of Fox's "Glee," ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" encore and CBS's "Two and a Half Men" encore hour, "Parks" tied for #2 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49, was #2 outright in adults and women 18-34 and was #1 among those networks in men 18-34.

· "Parks and Recreation" retained 81 percent of its 18-49 lead-in from "The Office," pending updates, up from its 77 percent average in this time period last season.

· At 10 p.m. ET, "Rock Center" (1.1/3 in1 8-49, 4.1 million viewers overall) is currently #2 in the hour among ABC, CBS and NBC in adult 18-49, adults 25-54 and total viewers, tied for #1 in adults 18-34 and #1 outright among those networks in men 18-34.
