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

· A Jan. 12 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Steve Carell and musical guest Ella Mai, has averaged a 3.2 rating, 8 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.1/6 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters (with the Kansas City market currently excluded).

· This week's "SNL" equaled the show's highest overnights for a "Saturday Night Live" rebroadcast since Jan. 6, 2018 with an encore delayed by NFL playoff football (3.6 in metered-market households, 1.6 in 18-49 in the local people meters with host Chance The Rapper and musical guest Eminem). The Jan. 12 overnights equal the results of an hourlong Oct. 27 11:30-12:30 "Halloween" special (3.2 in households, 1.1 in 18-49), as well as the 18-49 rating of a March 24, 2018 rebroadcast (with host Saoirse Ronan and musical guest U2, 1.1).

· Excluding nights of NBC primetime NFL coverage, the last time an "SNL" encore topped last night's 3.2 in metered-market households was Feb. 25, 2017 (with host Emma Stone and musical guest Shawn Mendes, 3.3) and the last time a rebroadcast beat last night's 1.1 in 18-49 without a primetime NFL lead-in was Oct. 28, 2017 ("SNL Presents Halloween," 1.3).
