Another big appearance. Another big ratings win.
It seems wherever Trump goes, big time viewership follows. This past saturday, Trump hosted Saturday Night Live and it was a hoot! The Donald got big laughs for his sketches making fun of himself, and for “Live Tweeting” the cast and insulting them.
Well it turns out that not only did Trump get huge ratings on SNL, he bumped the show to a 3-year high in ratings. SNL has fallen off in recent years and this cast isn’t rumored to be one of the worst ever, but that’s not a problem when Trump comes to town!
In the overnight metered markets, Saturday’s show scored a 6.6/16 in households, ‘SNL’s’ best overnights since January 2012. In adults 18-49, the episode drew a 2.7 rating, tops for the show since February 2014.
Previous episodes this season have averaged around 2.0 in adults 18-49 and the low to mid-4s in households.
That’s our guy! Trump is a powerhouse. Here’s a clip from the show. Enjoy!
