Saturday Final Nationals: ‘SNL’ with Dwayne Johnson and Katy Perry on NBC Registers Best Season Finale Viewership in Six Years

CBS led Saturday prime time among total viewers (2.89 million) while NBC was tops in all key demos, thanks primarily to Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals: Nashville Predators at Anaheim Ducks in the “2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs.”
In late night for most of the country (prime time in the Mountain and West time zones), NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson with musical guest Katy Perry, averaged 8.272 million viewers overall and a 2.32 rating in adults 18-49 in “fast official” “live plus same day” results from Nielsen Media Research. Among adults 18-49, it was the highest-rated telecast on a broadcast network for the week of May 15-21. The 42nd season finale featured guest stars Alec Baldwin and Tom Hanks and was the final episode for cast members Bobby Moynihan, Vanessa Bayer and Sasheer Zamata.
The 8.272 million is “Saturday’s Night Live’s” biggest overall audience for a season finale since May 21, 2011 (with host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga, 9.818 million). In 18-49, it’s the top-rated “SNL” season-closer since May 18, 2013 (with host Ben Affleck and musical guest Kanye West, 2.37).
In Live+Same Day, “SNL” this season has averaged a 2.17 rating in 18-49 and 7.495 million viewers overall, and in Live+Seven Day, “SNL” grew to a 3.48 in 18-49 and 10.880 million viewers.
