'Saturday Night Live' hosted by Jim Carrey dominated late-night


“Saturday Night Live” (7.8/18 in metered-market households from 11:45 p.m.-1:15 a.m.) hosted by Jim Carrey with musical guest The Black Keys, dominated its time period with the highest “SNL” average in local-market household rating since May 8, 2010 (8.8/21 with a telecast hosted by Betty White featuring musical guest Jay-Z). 

Note that “Saturday Night Live” was delayed by the overrun of the Jets-Colt NFL Wild Card Playoff Game.

Versus the same night last year, “SNL” is up 4 percent in metered-market households (7.8/18 versus 7.5/19).

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, “Saturday Night Live” averaged a 5.4 rating, 20 share in adults 18-49, its highest 18-49 rating in the Local People Meters since November 1, 2008 (5.2/18 with a telecast hosted by Ben Affleck with musical guest David Cook and featuring a guest appearance by Presidential candidate Sen. John McCain).
