· The average 11.364 million viewers in L+7 makes this the show's most-watched season at this point in 24 years (versus prior seasons' original telecasts through comparable dates), best since 1992 (11.949 million for that season's first seven originals).

· The 3.74 average in L+7 adults 18-49 rating nationally average is the show's best performances in the demo at this point since 2008 (4.51 for that season's first nine originals).

· Grows +10% in total viewers versus the year-ago Saturday telecast (3.742 million vs. 3.411 million on Dec. 5, 2015) and retains 100% in 18-49 (0.6 vs. 0.6).

· Is close to rounding up to a 0.7 in 18-49 (currently reporting a 0.64 in these preliminary fast-affiliate ratings).

· From its first half-hour to its sixth, grows by +60% in adults 18-49 (from a 0.5 to a 0.8), +50% in adults 25-54 (0.8 to 1.2) and +45% or 1.4 million persons in total viewers (3.1 million to 4.5 million).

· Delivers NBC's second-most-watched Saturday night of the season, behind only the 3.800 million for Nov. 12 with "Dateline Mystery" and "SNL Vintage."
