'SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE' DELIVERS ITS SECOND-BEST OVERNIGHTS IN 22 MONTHS

WITH HOSTS TINA FEY & AMY POEHLER AND MUSICAL GUEST BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN AND THE E STREET BAND, 'SNL' IMPROVES ON LAST SEASON'S AVERAGE FOR ORIGINALS BY +28% IN METERED-MARKET HOUSEHOLDS

In Late-Night Metered-Market Household Averages for Saturday Night:

· These are the second-highest "SNL" results this season, behind only the Nov. 7 telecast (with host Donald Trump and musical guest Sia, 6.6/16 in metered-market household, 2.7/13 in 18-49 in the local people meters).

· It's also the second-highest-rated "Saturday Night Live" in both measures in the past 22 months, best excluding the Nov. 7 Trump-hosted telecast since Feb. 1, 2014 (5.4/13 in metered-market households, 2.9/12 in 18-49 in the local people meters, with host Melissa McCarthy and musical guest Imagine Dragons, which was Seth Meyers' last telecast as a regular).

· The Dec. 19 "Saturday Night Live" is up +28% versus the show's average for original telecasts last season in metered-market households (5.1 vs. 4.0) and up +30% in 18-49 in the local people meters (2.6 vs. 2.0).

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, growing nationally by +49% this season going from "live plus same day" ratings to "live plus seven day" ratings in adult 18-49 results (from a 1.87 rating to a 2.78), and by +2.2 million viewers overall (6.4 million to 8.6 million).

Saturday Primetime Results:

· An encore telecast of "The Wiz Live!" (0.4/2 in 18-49, 1.6 million viewers overall from 8-10:58 pm. ET) grew from its first half-hour to its sixth by 0.2 of a point or +67% in 18-49 (0.3 to 0.5) and 0.2 of a point or +50% in adults 25-54 (0.4 vs. 0.6).

NOTE: All ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

· In total viewers, it's the second-most-watched "SNL" in 13 months, since Nov. 1, 2014 (7.436 million with host Chris Rock and musical guest Prince), trailing over that span only the Nov. 7 edition (9.272 million).
