“Saturday Night Live” went live coast-to-coast in for the first time ever, and the ratings came in strong.
The show had SNL alum Jimmy Fallon as host with musical guest Harry Styles. The ratings were the highest they have been since February 11th, when Alec Baldwin hosted.
The live show brought 7.9 million viewers and a 2.3 18-49 rating as reported by Nielsen. Those numbers are up significantly over last week’s show hosted by comedian Louis C.K., which brought in 6.5 million viewers and a 1.7 rating.
There were guest appearances by Alec Baldwin as President Trump and Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer dressed up as the Easter Bunny.
