In late-night, the 11:30 “SNL” delivered the season’s third-best results:

 

  • “Saturday Night Live,” with host with host Melissa McCarthy and musical guest Imagine Dragons, averaged a 5.4/13 in household results in Nielsen’s 56 metered markets and a 2.9/12 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with Local People Meters, making it the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in both metered-market households and 18-49 rating in the Local People Meters.

 

  • “Saturday Night Live” earned its third-best results of the season in both metered-market households and 18-49 rating in the Local People Meters, trailing only the Dec. 21 edition hosted by Jimmy Fallon with musical guest Justin Timberlake (6.4/16 in metered-market households, 3.9/18 in 18-49 in the LPMs) and the Jan. 4 “SNL Best of This Season” telecast (5.6/14 in metered-market households, 3.0/12 in 18-49 in the LPMs), which benefited from an NFL lead-in.

 

  • Versus the top primetime programs on the Big 4 networks last night, “SNL” was rated 35% higher in metered-market households than the #2 telecast (5.4 vs. 4.0 for CBS’s “48 Hours”).  In adults 18-49 in the Local People Meters, “SNL” generated two-and-a-half times the night’s #2 telecast on ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox (2.9 vs. 1.1 for the 10 p.m. “SNL” encore).
