Ratings: Elizabeth Banks, Disclosure “SNL” Falls From Trump Episode

Featuring host Elizabeth Banks and musical guest Disclosure (with Lorde and Sam Smith) — and notably no Donald Trump — Saturday’s “SNL” suffered week-over-week losses in the overnight ratings.

Per metered market data, “Saturday Night Live” drew a 4.0 overnight household rating. That markedly (and predictably) trails the 4.7 overnight number posted by last week’s Trump-Sia episode.

This weekend’s episode meanwhile drew a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets with local people meters. Last week’s episode scored a 2.7 demo rating in the people meter markets.

Down from both the Trump-Sia and 10/17 Tracy Morgan-Demi Lovato episode, this week’s broadcast bested the 10/10 Amy Schumer-The Weeknd episode in the overnight households (3.9). It tied that episode in adults 18-49.
