From NBC:

“The Nov. 7 telecast of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ with host Donald Trump and musical guest Sia, averaged a 6.6 rating, 16 share in metered-market household results from Nielsen Media Research and a 2.7/13 in adults 18-49 in the local people meters.

“In the 56 markets metered by Nielsen, the 6.6 rating is the highest for ‘Saturday Night Live’ since Jan. 7, 2012 (7.0/18 with host Charles Barkley and musical guest Kelly Clarkson). In the 25 markets with local people meters, the 2.7 rating in adults 18-49 is the show’s highest since Feb. 1, 2014 (2.9/12 with host Melissa McCarthy and musical guest Imagine Dragons).

“‘Saturday Night Live’ ranked as the night’s #1 telecast on the Big 4 networks in metered-market households, topping all primetime programs on those nets.

“The Nov. 7 ‘Saturday Night Live’ is up +53% versus ‘SNL’s’ year-ago November average for originals in metered-market households (6.6 vs. 4.3 on Nov. 1, 15 and 22, 2014).  On the same night last year, ‘SNL’ aired a rebroadcast.  Versus the 2014-15 season average for originals, this week’s “Saturday Night Live” grew +65% (6.6 vs. 4.0).

“Note that ‘SNL’ adds significant viewership via time-shifting, with originals nationally growing by +51% so far this season going from ‘live plus same day’ ratings to ‘live plus seven day’ ratings in adult 18-49 (from a 1.75 rating to a 2.65).”
