The penultimate “Saturday Night Live” of 2019 endured a slight week-over-week loss in the overnight household ratings. It held steady in the adults 18-49 demographic.

Citing metered market data, NBC says this weekend’s episode drew a 4.0 overnight household rating. Featuring host Scarlett Johansson and musical guest Niall Horan, the episode meanwhile drew a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating in the Top 25 markets.

With host Jennifer Lopez and musical guest DaBaby, last Saturday’s broadcast drew a 4.2 in households but the same 1.7 in the key demo.

“SNL” concludes 2019 next week with host Eddie Murphy and musical guest Lizzo.
