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

· A Feb. 25 encore of "Saturday Night Live," with host Emma Stone and musical guest Shawn Mendes, has averaged a 3.3 rating, 9 share in households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets and a 1.2/7 in 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Last night's "Saturday Night Live" encore was the #1 show of the night on the broadcast networks in 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating every Saturday primetime telecast on those nets in the 18-49 demo.

· Versus what the show averaged last year with February rebroadcasts, last night's "Saturday Night Live" is up +10% in metered-market households (3.3 vs. 3.0). In fact, the 3.3 rating in households beats every encore telecast of "SNL" from last season in metered-market households.
