Here are the highlights of the eight ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (6/10/17):

Next up was CBS (2.603 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3) and its repeat lineup of "Blue Bloods" (2.731 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.2, #8), "48 Hours" (2.354 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T4) and another "48 Hours" (2.724 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T4).

And finally, a rebroadcast of "One Love Manchester" (1.596 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T4) and "20/20: In an Instant" (2.259 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T4) rounded out the evening on ABC (2.038 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T3).

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

It's the highest metered-market household rating for an "SNL" rebroadcast since April 1 (3.3 with host Alec Baldwin and musical guest Ed Sheeran)

· Last night's "Saturday Night Live" encore is the #1 show of the night on the broadcast networks in both metered-market household and 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating every Saturday primetime telecast on those nets in both measures.

· Versus what the show averaged last year with June encores, last night's "Saturday Night Live" is up +12% in metered-market households (2.9 vs. 2.6 in June 2016).

NBC (2.172 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.6, #2) then was the number two draw with encores of "American Ninja Warrior" (2.361 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T2) and "Maya & Marty" (1.794 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T4).

Next up was CBS (3.735 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T3) and its repeat lineup of "NCIS: Los Angeles" (3.158 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #7), "48 Hours" (3.474 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T4) and another "48 Hours" (4.574 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T2).

And finally, FOX (2.702 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T3) closed out the evening with its "Baseball Night in America" (2.702 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T4) coverage.

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

· An encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Larry David and musical guest The 1975, averaged a 2.6 rating, 7 share in household results from the 56 markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 0.9/5 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· The June 11 "SNL" is up +4% versus the show's June 2015 average in metered-market households (2.6 vs 2.5 for June 2015).

· Note that "SNL" adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals this past season growing by +49% going from L+SD to L+7 in adults 18-49 (1.83 to 2.72) and +2.090 million persons in total viewers (6.051 million to 8.141 million).
