NBC’s Saturday Night Live kept the ratings momentum going in its return from a spring break with a 4.5 Live+same day rating in the metered market households and a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating in the markets with local people meters for last night’s episode hosted by Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman and featuring musical guest Cardi B as well as Alec Baldwin as Donald Trump.
That was up a notch from the most recent SNL original before the hiatus three weeks ago hosted by Bill Hader (4.5, 1.9), which in turn was up from the season-low marks posted by the previous week’s show (4.1, 1.7).
In fact, these are the highest SNL deliveries in both measures since Feb. 3 (4.6, 2.0 with host Natalie Portman and musical guest Dua Lipa).
Saturday Night Live was the #1 show on the Big 4 networks Saturday in both metered-market households and 18-49 in the local people meters, topping in both measures all primetime programs on those nets, including ABC’s Thunder-Rockets NBA coverage.
