Ratings: “Saturday Night Live” Rises For Halsey Episode

The Halsey edition of “SNL” posted the third-best ratings this season.

This weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” which featured Halsey as host and musical guest, delivered one of the show’s best ratings performances this season.

Citing metered market data, NBC says the episode drew a 4.7 overnight household rating. It meanwhile posted a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating in the Top 25 markets.

The numbers top the 4.1 household rating and 1.7 adults 18-49 rating drawn by the previous episode on January 26.

They, moreover, make for the show’s third-best performance this season. Only the season premiere (Adam Driver and Kanye West) and Christmas episode (Matt Damon and Mark Ronson & Miley Cyrus) drew bigger numbers.

“SNL” returns next week with host Don Cheadle and musical guest Gary Clark, Jr.
