'SNL' Prime-Time Special Scores in Ratings!

In the overnight ratings for Saturday, September 26, 1998, "The Bad Boys of SNL" was the second highest-rated program of the evening.

The special scored a 7.9/14, and won its time-slot. Even more impressive is the fact that "Bad Boys of SNL" didn't exactly have a good lead-in -- it followed NBC's "Death Defying Thrills," which was the lowest rated network program of the night, with a 4.3/8.

Overall, NBC placed second for night with a 6.7/12. CBS, boosted by the season premiere of "Early Edition" (8.5/16), won the night with an 8.0/14.
