Saturday Night Live hosted by Taylor Lautner and featuring musical guest Bon Jovi averaged a 5.1/12 rating/share in the metered-market households — the highest metered market rating so far this season (full info, including viewers and age demographics will not be available until Thursday).
It was the number one program of the night on the major networks, besting everything in prime-time. Not a surprise as SNL has been the top Saturday night show on the broadcast networks, including prime-time and excluding sports going all the way back to last March.
Week five of Fox’s The Wanda Sykes Show at 11 p.m. averaged a 1.6/3 in metered-market households, up a tenth of a point versus last week’s lowest-yet 1.5/3. The show premiered with a 2.1/4 on November 7. Mad TV averaged a 2.0/4 in the fourth quarter last year.
