Saturday Night Live Flying High In Ratings
Apparently the public is not reading or caring about Donald Trump’s tweets concerning SNL.
Saturday Night Live is having its best season since the election of Barack Obama. In live-plus-7-day measurement, SNL is averaging 11.310 million total viewers and 3.56 rating in the adults 18-49 demo.
Saturday night’s show, with SNL alumna Kristen Wiig hosting for the second time and Alec Baldwin returning as Donald Trump, drew a 4.7 live-plus-same-day rating in the metered markets and a 2.2 among adults 18-49 in the markets with local people meters. These are season low marks for SNL.
The president-elect took to Twitter on Sunday morning to complain about SNL’s content. “It is a totally one-sided, biased show—nothing funny at all. Equal time for us?” Baldwin responded to Trump, telling him to shift his focus away from SNL and toward his presidential duties ahead.
