Saturday Night Live hosted by Daniel Radcliffe with musical guest Lana Del Rey averaged a 3.0 rating with adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.While that’s way down from last week’s (Charles Barkley/Kelly Clarkson) telecast, last week’s telecast was supercharged by an NFL Wild Card playoff game on NBC that night. Outside of that, the 3.0 ties for the next best local people meter 18-49 performance of the season.

Versus the same night last year, “SNL” is up 2 percent in metered-market households (5.2 vs. 5.1).
