'Saturday Night Live' hosted by Anne Hathaway dominated its time period


In late-night metered-market households Saturday night: “Saturday Night Live” (4.7/12 in metered-market households) hosted by Anne Hathaway with musical guest Florence and The Machine, dominated its time period.  Versus the same night last year, “SNL” is up 9 percent in the metered markets (4.7 vs. 4.3).

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, “Saturday Night Live” averaged a 2.7 rating, 11 share in adults 18-49 and was the #1 show of the night in the Local People Meters, ahead of all primetime telecasts on the English-language broadcast networks.  “Saturday Night Live” matched its highest 18-49 rating in the 25 Local People Meter Markets since September 25, the night of the “SNL” season premiere.

From 8-11 p.m., NBC Sports’ coverage of Army-Notre Dame football from Yankee Stadium averaged a 1.9 rating, 3 share in metered-market households.

Fast-affiliate results for NBC Saturday night are unreliable due to the live nature of the programming.
