· Regarding this morning's Nielsens, remember that the fast-national ratings that came in at 11 a.m. ET/8 a.m. PT are not time zone-adjusted and are subject to revision for live sports telecasts. Despite that, NBC is currently #2 for the night among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49, within a tenth of a rating point of #1 in the fast-national ratings.
· Prior to time zone adjustment, the fast nationals show NBC Sports' Michigan-Notre Dame College Football coverage scoring NBC's top-rated Saturday night in adults 18-49 and total viewers in three months, since Rangers-Kings Stanley Cup Hockey earned a 2.0 rating, 8 share in adults 18-49 and 6.0 million viewers overall from 8-11 p.m. in official nationals for Saturday, June 7.
In Late-Night Metered-Market Household Averages for Saturday Night:
· An encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Louis C.K. and musical guest Sam Smith, averaged a 2.4/6 in household results in Nielsen's 56 metered markets (Detroit currently excluded) and a 0.9/4 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with Local People Meters. "SNL" earned its top rating in metered-market households in three weeks (since Aug. 16, with host Anna Kendrick and musical guest Pharrell, 2.5/7).
NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.
