Featuring host Tom Hanks and musical guest Lady Gaga, this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” posted season high overnight ratings.
Citing metered market data, NBC notes that Saturday’s “SNL” drew a 6.1 overnight household rating. It posted a 3.0 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets with local people meters.
The numbers markedly top the 5.0 overnight household rating and 2.3 adults 18-49 rating drawn by last week’s Emily Blunt-Bruno Mars broadcast.
They also rank as the best October “SNL” numbers since the 10/25/08 edition (host Jon Hamm, musical guest Coldplay) drew a 7.1 household rating and a 4.0 LPM adults 18-49 rating.
Off next week, “SNL” returns with an original on November 5. Benedict Cumberbatch will host, while Solange will perform as the musical guest.
