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 nine ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks last night (11/9/19):

FOX (3.117 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.9, #1) pulled into the top spot on Saturday with its coverage of "CFB on FOX" (3.117 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.9, #1).

Second place then went to ABC (2.515 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.6, #2) with weekly "Saturday Night College Football" (2.515 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T3).

Next up was CBS (2.977 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.5, #3) and its mix of "Mom" (3.696 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.8, #2), "Carol's Second Act" (2.832 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T3), "All Rise" (2.272 million viewers, #8; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T6) and a new "48 Hours" (3.395 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.5, #5).

And finally, NBC (2.387 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #4) closed out the night with "The Voice" (1.741 million viewers, #9; adults 18-49: 0.3, #9), "Dateline Saturday Night Mystery" (3.071 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T6) and "SNL Vintage" (2.349 million viewers, #7; adults 18-49: 0.4, #T6).

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

· A Nov. 9 encore edition of "Saturday Night Live," hosted by Phoebe Waller-Bridge and featuring musical guest Taylor Swift, has averaged a 2.8 rating in "live plus same day" household results from 44 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· Versus primetime programming on the Big 4 networks Saturday night, the "SNL" rebroadcast is the #1 show of the night in metered-market households and in 18-49 in the local people meters.

· Note that current metered-market results are not compatible with data issued before Oct. 12 due to changes in Nielsen methodology. This is the top-rated "SNL" encore among two rebroadcasts since the change in methodology.


Here are the highlights of the six ad-sustained programs that aired in primetime on the broadcast networks one year ago (11/10/18):

ABC (3.812 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 1.0, #1) was the network to beat on Saturday with its weekly telecast of "Saturday Night College Football" (3.812 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 1.0, #1).

NBC (3.256 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2) then was the silver draw with its own coverage of "College Football: Florida State at Notre Dame" (3.256 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.7, #2).

Next up was FOX (2.652 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.6, #3) and its "CFB on FOX" (2.652 million viewers, #6; adults 18-49: 0.6, #3) coverage.

And finally, repeats of "NCIS" (3.333 million viewers, #4; adults 18-49: 0.4, #6) and "FBI" (3.450 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T4) plus a new "48 Hours" (3.874 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.5, #T4) on CBS (3.552 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.5, #4) rounded out the evening.

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

· The Nov. 10 telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Liev Schreiber and musical guest Lil Wayne, averaged a 4.0 rating, 10 share in "live plus same day" household results from the 56 local markets metered by Nielsen Media Research and a 1.5/8 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.

· "Saturday Night Live" scored as the #1 telecast of the night on the Big 4 networks in metered-market households and 18-49 in the local people meters, outrating every Saturday primetime program on those nets in both measures.
