In Late-Night Metered-Market Household Averages for Saturday night:

An encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Peyton Manning and musical guest Carrie Underwood, averaged a 2.3/6 in metered-market households.  In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, “Saturday Night Live” averaged a 1.0 rating, 5 share in adults 18-49.  "SNL" posted the top non-sports rating of the night among CBS, NBC and Fox in the Local People Meters, out-rating all primetime entertainment programming on those networks.

    Crazy thought: delay SNL season premiere until Christmas and run the season until the end of August (with some hiatus in between, naturally) to take advantage of the dismal summer programming on Saturdays?

    I wish they would air more of these older episodes! Really enjoyed this one last night

    @Sean, they’re all on Netflix in their 60-min versions.
