Live From New York It's... Season High Ratings for Saturday Night Live!

Last night’s Jim Carrey-hosted Saturday Night Live cleaned up in the ratings. Based on preliminary data, the NBC skitcom scored a 7.8 rating/18 share — its largest audience of the season and its best numbers since Betty White’s high-profile hosting stint last May. SNL no doubt has NBC’s wild card game to thank for the huge turnout. Per Deadline, the Jets/Colts nailbiter drew record ratings for the Peacock.

But back to SNL, here’s a clip of Carrey’s first skit — a hilarious parody of Black Swan.

    • Chris says:

      SNL cannot be a “skitcom” if it runs a little over an 1 1/2 long and is not 30 min. long, AND ENOUGH WITH LAME MADE-UP GENRE LABELS ALREADY, MIKE!!!! “SKITCOM” IS LAMER THAN “HITCOM” AND DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT USING EITHER WORDS TOO, MATT!!!!!!
