“Saturday Night Live,” with host Dwayne Johnson and musical guest George Ezra, averaged a 3.7 rating, 9 share in household results in Nielsen’s 56 metered markets and a 1.9/9 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with Local People Meters.


“SNL” is the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in metered-market households and adults 18-49 in the Local People Meters, ahead of all primetime programs on the Big 4 networks in both measures.  In the Local People Meters, “SNL” more than doubled the 18-49 rating of every primetime telecast on those networks.
