'SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE' DELIVERS ITS BIGGEST AUDIENCE FOR AN ENCORE IN A YEAR AND A HALF

WITH HOST SETH MACFARLANE AND MUSICAL GUEST FRANK OCEAN, THE OCT. 27 EDITION AVERAGES 5.2 MILLION VIEWERS, MOST FOR AN 'SNL' REBROADCAST SINCE APRIL 16, 2011

SEASON TO DATE, 'SNL' ORIGINALS ARE UP VS. LAST YEAR IN 18-49 BY 7 PERCENT

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - November 2, 2012 - The October 27 encore edition of "Saturday Night Live," hosted by Seth MacFarlane and featuring musical guest Frank Ocean, has delivered the show's biggest overall audience for a rebroadcast in a year and a half.

The October 27 encore averaged a 1.8 rating, 7 share in adults 18-49 and 5.2 million viewers overall. That 5.2 million is the biggest viewership for an "SNL" rebroadcast since an April 16, 2011 edition hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow and featuring musical guest Cee Lo Green, which averaged 5.5 million.

In adults 18-49, the October 27 telecast is the top "Saturday Night Live" encore since February 25 (with an episode hosted by Charlie Day and featuring musical guest Maroon 5, 1.8), and it matched the high for a rebroadcast since that April 16, 2011 telecast (2.0).

Versus a "Saturday Night Live" encore on the same night last year, the October 27 rebroadcast is up 20 percent in adults 18-49 (with a 1.8 rating vs. a 1.5) and up 9 percent in total viewers (5.2 million vs. 4.7 million).

The October 27 "Saturday Night Live" encore out-rated every Saturday non-sports primetime telecast on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox so far this season in adults 18-49.

In national ratings so far this season, original telecasts of "Saturday Night Live" are up versus one year ago by 7 percent in 18-49 rating (with a 3.1 vs. a 2.9, "most current") and up 5 percent in total viewers (7.8 million vs. 7.5 million).

'TONIGHT SHOW' AND 'LATE NIGHT' SCORE #1 RANKINGS FOR THE WEEK OF OCT. 22-26, GENERATING SEVEN-WEEK RATINGS HIGHS

JAY LENO AND JIMMY FALLON TOP THEIR TIME-PERIOD COMPETITION ON ABC AND CBS IN EVERY KEY RATINGS MEASURE

THE OCTOBER 24 APPEARANCE BY PRESIDENT OBAMA ON 'TONIGHT' DELIVERS JAY'S BIGGEST WEDNESDAY AUDIENCE SINCE MARCH 2011

THROUGH THE SEASON'S FIRST FIVE WEEKS, JAY HAS INCREASED HIS YEAR-AGO MARGINS OVER 'LATE SHOW' IN 18-34, 18-49 AND 25-54

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - November 2, 2012 - NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" have generated seven-week highs to finish #1 for the late-night week of October 22-26 with bigger audiences than the time-period competition on ABC and CBS in every key category: adults, men and women 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, plus total viewers.

Wednesday's "Tonight Show," which featured as guest President Barack Obama, averaged 4.6 million viewers, the most for a Wednesday telecast of "Tonight" since March 23, 2011. That Wednesday result helped boost "Tonight" and "Late Night" to their biggest weekly adult 18-49 audiences (1.1 million and 675,000 viewers respectively) since September 3-7, the week of the Democratic National Convention. In total viewers, it's the top "Tonight' week (3.7 million) since July 23-27, which included the high-rated night of the London Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Through the first five weeks of the 2012-13 season, "Tonight" has stretched its leads versus one year ago over CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman" in viewers 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54. In viewers 18-49, "Tonight" has established a margin over "Late Show" of 9 percent (981,000 vs. 900,000), eliminating last year's "Late Show" advantage of 2 percent. Jay has also generated a 25-54 advantage this season of 6 percent (1.249 million vs. 1.182 million) after trailing by 1 percent at this point last year, while stretching his 18-34 lead to 25 percent (340,000 vs. 273,000), up from last year's 9 percent.
