By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

Primetime Preliminary Fast National Nielsen Data
(includes all DVR playback through 3:00 am)

Here are the highlights of the six ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (9/14/19):

ABC (3.439 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.8, #1) held onto the top spot on Saturday with its coverage of "Saturday Night College Football" (3.439 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.8, #1).

FOX (2.477 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2) then took home the silver with its own "CFB on FOX" (2.477 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2) coverage.

Next up was CBS (3.116 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #3) with a repeat "NCIS" (2.749 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T5) followed by the two-hour season premiere of "48 Hours" (3.299 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3).

And finally, repeats of "America's Got Talent" (1.769 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.3, #T5) and "Dateline Saturday Night Mystery" (2.207 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) rouned out the night on NBC (1.915 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #4).

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

· A Sept. 14 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host John Mulaney and musical guest Thomas Rhett, has averaged a 2.3 rating, 7 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 0.6/4 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· The 2.3 in metered-market households ranks as the show's highest overnight rating since June 29 (2.3 for an encore hosted by Don Cheadle with musical guest Gary Clark Jr.) and the 0.6 in 18-49 matches the "SNL" high since June 1 (0.7 for a rebroadcast with host Emma Thompson and musical guest Jonas Brothers).

· The Sept. 14 "Saturday Night Live" encore ranks as the #2 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49 in the local people meters, topping all primetime programs on those nets for the night except ABC's Clemson-Syracuse college football telecast.


Here are the highlights of the seven ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (9/15/18):

ABC (7.086 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 2.1, #1) dominated the competition on Saturday with its coverage of "Saturday Night College Football" (7.086 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 2.1, #1).

FOX (2.628 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2) then was a distant second with its own "CFB on FOX" (2.628 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2) coverage.

Next up was CBS (2.563 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #3) with the season finale of "Pink Collar Crimes" (2.270 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) followed by a repeat "48 Hours" (2.797 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3) and another "48 Hours" (2.622 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3).

And finally, NBC (2.376 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.3, #4) rounded out the night with "America's Got Talent" (2.100 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.3, #7) and "Dateline Saturday Night Mystery" (2.926 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T3).

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

· The Sept. 15 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Donald Glover and musical guest Glover as Childish Gambino, has averaged a 2.5 rating, 7 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research (with two markets currently unavailable due to Hurricane Florence) and a 0.8/5 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Last night's 0.8 equals "SNL's" high in 18-49 in the local people meters since June 2 (1.0 with a prior rebroadcast of the episode hosted by Glover).

· The Sept. 1 telecast is up +4% versus "SNL's" September 2017 average for encores in metered-market households (2.5 vs. 2.4) and is maintaining 100% in 18-49 in the local people meters (0.8 vs. 0.8 for September 2017 rebroadcasts).
