NBC spins the numbers for Saturday, October 14.

[via press release from NBC]

"SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" GENERATES SEASON HIGHS & THE SHOW'S 2ND STRONGEST WEEK 3 METERED-MARKET RATING IN 6 YEARS

WITH SOME VIEWERS IN THE WESTERN U.S. NOT YET COUNTED IN THESE METERED-MARKET HOUSEHOLDS, THE OCT. 14 TELECAST, WITH HOST KUMAIL NANJIANI AND MUSICAL GUEST PINK, IS THE #1 TELECAST OF THE NIGHT ON THE BIG 4 NETWORKS IN HOUSEHOLDS AND 18-49

In Late-Night Metered-Market Ratings for Saturday Night:

· The Oct. 14 telecast of "Saturday Night Live" has generated season-high metered-market ratings and the show's second-biggest Week 3 household rating in six years, trailing over that span only last year's election-fueled result, according to "live plus same day" local-market results from Nielsen Media Research.

· With a telecast, hosted by Kumail Nanjiani and featuring musical guest Pink, last night's "Saturday Night Live" averaged a 4.6 rating, 11 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 2.2/10 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters

· The Oct. 14 edition aired live coast to coast (11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT) and was replayed at 11:30 in western markets. Note that these numbers under-report last night's "SNL" results because they don't include viewership from the show's 11:30 replays in the Western U.S.

· Last night's edition set season highs in these metered-market results in both households and 18-49, with the show's strongest numbers since last season's finale (5.3/13 in metered-market households and 2.6/13 in 18-49 in the local people meters with host Dwayne Johnson and musical guest Katy Perry).

· The 4.6 household rating ranks as the show's second-biggest local-market household rating for the third "SNL" original of a season since Oct. 8, 2011, when the episode hosted by Ben Stiller and featuring musical guest Foster The People averaged a 4.8 rating.

· Over that six-year span, the only bigger result for a Week 3 "SNL" came with last year's edition, hosted by Emily Blunt and featuring musical guest Bruno Mars (5.0 in metered-market households on Oct. 15, 2016). Last year's was the show's top-rated Week 3 edition in metered-market households since 2008 and equaled the highest Week 3 18-49 rating in the local people meters since 2011.

· The 2.2 in adults 18-49 in the local people meters is also the show's highest Week 3 result in four years, since Oct. 12, 2013 (2.3 with host Bruce Willis and musical guest Katy Perry), trailing over that span only last year's 2.3.

· Last night's "Saturday Night Live" was the #1 telecast of the night on the broadcast networks in both metered-market households and in 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating every Saturday primetime telecast on those nets in both categories.

· Note that "Saturday Night Live" will add significant viewership via time-shifting and VOD. Last season's 21 originals grew by +60% in adult 18-49 rating and +3.406 million persons or +44% in total viewers going from "live plus same day" Nielsens to "live plus seven day" figures..

· That season's average 11.071 million viewers in L+7 made 2016-17 the show's most-watched season in 23 years, "SNL's" best since 1993-94 (11.320 million). The 3.51 average in L+7 adults 18-49 rating made it the show's best season in that demo in seven years (since the 2009-10 season, a 3.51).

Saturday Primetime Ratings:

· "One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief" aired on NBC, Telemundo, Univision and other outlets from 10-11 p.m. ET and PT, after an earlier 8-10 p.m. Spanish-language telecast on Telemundo, Univision and other outlets. Currently available fast-affiliate ratings for the 10-11 p.m. program reflect only NBC and are subject to change for the special telecast due to out-of-pattern scheduling in the Mountain time zone.

· Those fast-affiliate ratings currently show the special averaging 2.457 million viewers overall and a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 on NBC. The last time NBC averaged more viewers in the timeslot with non-sports programming was Sept. 2 (3.2 million with "Dateline Mystery").

· In metered-market ratings, which are time zone-adjusted, "One Voice: Somos Live! A Concert for Disaster Relief" delivered a 1.7 rating, 3 share in metered-market households and a 0.7/3 in 18-49 in the local people meters. The last time NBC scored a higher 18-49 rating Saturday at 10 p.m. in the local people meters was Aug. 26 (0.8 with "Dateline Mystery").

· Due to inconsistent start times across time zones, currently available fast-affiliate ratings are not reliable for NBC's Saturday 8-10 p.m. ET programming.

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

"SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" HITS A SEASON HIGH IN 18-49 & ITS TOP WEEK 3 RATING IN 4 YEARS

In Total Viewers, the Oct. 14 Edition, With Host Kumail Nanjiani and Musical Guest P!nk, Is the Show's #2 Most-Watched Week 3 Telecast in Nine Years

NEW YORK. - Oct. 17, 2017 - The Oct. 14 telecast of "Saturday Night Live" has generated the show's best Week 3 rating in adults 18-49 in four years and second-biggest Week 3 overall viewership in nine years, trailing over that span only last year's election-fueled result, according to official-national "live plus same day" figures from Nielsen Media Research.

The 18-49 rating is also a season high for "Saturday Night Live."

With a telecast hosted by Kumail Nanjiani and featuring musical guest P!nk, this week's "Saturday Night Live" averaged a 2.01 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.001 million viewers overall.

The 2.01 rating is the highest for the third "SNL" original telecast of a season since Oct. 12, 2013, when an episode with host Bruce Willis and musical guest Katy Perry scored a 2.09.

The Oct. 14 edition, which aired live coast to coast (11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT) and counted viewers from 11:30 encores in western markets, generated the show's second-biggest overall audience for Week 3 since Sept. 27, 2008, when the episode hosted by Anna Faris and featuring musical guest Duffy, averaged 7.854 million.

Over that nine-year span, the only bigger result for a Week 3 "SNL" came with last year's edition, hosted by Emily Blunt and featuring musical guest Bruno Mars (7.016 million viewers on Oct. 15, 2016).

Note that "Saturday Night Live" will add significant viewership via time-shifting and VOD. Last season's 21 originals grew by +60% in adult 18-49 rating and +3.406 million persons or +44% in total viewers nationally going from "live plus same day" Nielsens to "live plus seven day" figures.

That season's average 11.071 million viewers in L+7 made 2016-17 the show's most-watched season in 23 years, "SNL's" best since 1993-94 (11.320 million). The 3.51 average in L+7 adults 18-49 rating nationally made it the show's best season in that demo in seven years (since the 2009-10 season, a 3.51).
