No, Adam Sandler’s return to “Saturday Night Live” did not result in a blockbuster adults 18-49 rating.

It did, however, help Saturday’s broadcast tie a season high in households.

Citing metered market data, NBC says Saturday’s episode drew a 4.8 overnight household rating. It drew a 1.8 adults 18-49 rating in the Top 25 markets.

The numbers comfortably top those of the previous episode. Featuring host Emma Stone and musical guest BTS, that broadcast drew a 3.9 in households and a 1.5 in the demo.

The overnight household rating, moreover, ties the season high mark set by the Adam Driver-Kanye West and Matt Damon-Mark Ronson-Miley Cyrus episodes. The demo rating does not, however, earn a season high distinction.

Sandler was a cast member on “SNL” in the 1990s; Saturday’s episode marked his first time appearing as host. Shawn Mendes was the musical guest.
