In late-night metered market ratings (via NBC's press release):

· An encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Peter Dinklage and musical guest Gwen Stefani, averaged a 2.4 rating, 6 share in household results from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.0/5 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· "Saturday Night Live" ranks as the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in both metered-market households (tie) and 18-49 in the local people meters.

· The June 18 "SNL" equaled the show's June 2015 average in 18-49 in the local people meters (1.0 vs. 1.0).

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals this past season growing by +49% going from L+SD to L+7 in adults 18-49 (1.83 to 2.72) and +2.090 million persons in total viewers (6.051 million to 8.141 million).
