SNL Season 42 Ratings

SNL Scores Season-High Ratings with Tom Hanks and Lady Gaga

Saturday Night Live is on a roll.

Per preliminary data, last night’s Tom Hanks/Lady Gaga-helmed telecast delivered season-best ratings — eclipsing the previous high set by the Oct. 1 premiere.

Saturday’s show, arguably Season 42’s strongest outing creatively, notched a 6.1 metered-market rating, up from the 5.8 generated by the premiere.

It marks SNL‘s highest overnight average for an October episode in eight years.

Final ratings, including a viewership total, will be available on Tuesday.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    SNL has been pretty funny with all the election skits. Not all of the other sketches are winners, but they have such a great cast that even some bad skits have funny moments.
    Shoutout to MVP Kate McKinnon.

    Last night was the best SNL skits I’ve seen in a long time mainly because of Tom Hanks.

    Almost the entire show was funny. The political humor was fair and balanced. Black Jeopardy was a howl!
