Here are the highlights of the six ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (10/12/19):

FOX (5.309 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.3, #1) pulled into the top spot on Saturday with its primetime coverage of the "ALCS, Game 1" (5.309 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.3, #1).

ABC (3.557 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.9, #2) then had to settle for second with its weekly "Saturday Night College Football" (3.557 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.9, #2).

Next up was NBC (3.043 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #3) and its special "College Football: USC at Notre Dame" (3.043 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.7, #3).

And finally, repeats of "NCIS" (3.248 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.5, #4) and "All Rise" (2.514 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #6) led into a new "48 Hours" (3.320 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #5) on CBS (3.027 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #4) to round out the night.

In late-night metered market ratings (via NBC's press release):

· The Oct. 12 edition of "Saturday Night Live," hosted by David Harbour and featuring musical guest Camila Cabello, has averaged a 3.8 rating in "live plus same day" household results from 44 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Note that current metered-market results are not compatible with data issued before Oct. 5 due to changes in Nielsen methodology.

And finally, FOX (1.497 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #4) rounded out the night with repeats of "9-1-1" (1.376 million viewers, #9; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T8) and a second "9-1-1" (1.619 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T8).

In late-night metered market ratings (via NBC's press release):

· The Oct. 13 telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Seth Meyers and musical guest Paul Simon, averaged a 4.4 rating, 10 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research (the Richmond and Greensboro markets are currently excluded) and a 1.5/8 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.
