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

· The Feb. 20 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Adam Driver and musical guest Chris Stapleton, averaged a 3.1 rating, 8 share in household results from the 56 markets metered-by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.3/6 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters, to score the show's highest 18-49 rating in the local people meters for a rebroadcast since May.
