Here are the highlights of the six ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (4/13/19):

ABC (3.669 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.1, #1) was the victor on a sports heavy Saturday with its primetime coverage of the "NBA Playoffs: LA at Golden State" (3.669 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 1.1, #1).

NBC (2.245 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.6, #2) then was the silver draw with its presentation of the "NHL Playoffs: Toronto at Boston" (2.245 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.6, #2).

Next up was CBS (3.035 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) and its mix of "Ransom" (2.997 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T4), an encore of "The Code" (2.164 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #6) and "48 Hours" (3.944 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.5, #3).

And finally, FOX (2.723 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) closed out the night with its airing of "Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Racing: Richmond" (2.723 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T4).

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

· The April 13 telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Emma Stone and musical guest BTS, averaged a 3.9 rating, 10 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.5/8 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

Next up was CBS (3.007 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.4, #3) and its mix of "Ransom" (2.623 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6), a repeat "48 Hours" (2.712 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T4) and "48 Hours" (3.688 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T2).

And finally, encores of "The Crossing" (2.127 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6), "Station 19" (1.711 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T6) and "20/20 Saturday" (2.037 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T4) on ABC (1.958 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.3, #4) rounded out the night.

· "Saturday Night Live" is the #1 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in both metered-market households and 18-49 in the local people meters, topping all primetime programs on those nets in both measures.

· "Saturday Night Live" outrated the night's #2 Big 4 program in metered-market households by a +50% margin (3.9 vs. 2.6 for CBS' 10 p.m. telecast of "48 Hours") and more than doubled all of last night's primetime broadcast offerings in 18-49 in the local people meters.
