· Last night's "Saturday Night Live" is the #1 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in both metered-market households and in 18-49 in the local people meters, topping all primetime shows on those nets in both categories.

· It's the highest-rated "SNL" encore in 18-49 in the local people meters since June 2 (1.0 with host Donald Glover) and equals the top result in metered-market households since that same date (2.8).
