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

· A June 10 encore of "Saturday Night Live," with host Jimmy Fallon and musical guest Harry Styles, has averaged a 2.9 rating, 8 share in households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets and a 0.9/5 in 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters. 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).
