Trump Gives ‘SNL’ Biggest Ratings in Years
Donald Trump hosted Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7, and through his direction, the show had its biggest ratings in years.
Many Latino groups were calling for Trump to be banned from hosting the episode, but the network refused to abide by their demands and pushed forward with the episode.
The Hill reports:
SNL had a 6.6 household rating on Saturday Night, Entertainment Weekly reported, beating this season’s previous high — the episode hosted by Miley Cyrus during which Hillary Clinton made an appearance.
Trump’s overnight rating was 47 percent higher than the Miley/Hillary episode, according to EW.
A Jan. 7, 2012, episode hosted by Charles Barkley is still the SNL ratings champ.
