This weekend’s edition of “Saturday Night Live” was not a blockbuster, but it just as certainly no ratings disappointment.

Featuring “The Wolf of Wall Street”‘s Jonah Hill and up-and-coming alt-pop band Bastille, neither of which would be considered an obvious ratings draw, Saturday’s “SNL” drew a 2.6 adults 18-49 rating in the top 25 markets with people meters. Its overnight household rating clocked in at a 4.8.

Last week’s episode, which featured Drake as host and musical guest, drew a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating and a 4.7 household rating.

Melissa McCarthy hosts next week’s episode with musical guest Imagine Dragons.
