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

· An Aug. 31 encore telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Matt Damon and musical guests Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, has averaged a 2.2 rating, 6 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 2.2 in metered-market households equals 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 Aug. 31 "Saturday Night Live" encore ranks as the #1 non-sports show of the night on the Big 4 networks in metered-market households and adults 18-49 in the local people meters, topping all primetime entertainment programs on those nets for the night in both ratings measures.
