That preliminary local people meter rating of a 2.3 will be more than enough to win top honors for Saturday night if it holds up in the national finals. The original telecast averaged a 2.7 with adults 18-49 four weeks ago. Last week's original telecast (Jon Hamm & musical gues Rihanna) averaged a 2.5 rating. Anyway you look at it, the Jane Lynch episode repeated well.
Via NBC - In late-night metered-market households Saturday night:
