If you're saying that this season of SNL isn't as good as last year's, while you may be right, you probably are out of step with other viewers.
“Saturday Night Live” is enjoying strong ratings momentum again this season, notching a season-high number in Nielsen’s overnight markets with its most recent edition hosted by Larry David.
Saturday’s installment grabbed 11% of all households watching TV. That’s the show’s highest number of the 2017-18 season to date and its top score since the 2016-17 season finale in May hosted by Dwayne Johnson.
For the season to date, “SNL” episodes are averaging 9.9 million viewers. That puts it behind the 11.1 million average at the comparable point last season — when “SNL” had a big resurgence thanks to presidential election-fueled viewership — but it still ranks as the show’s second-best average since 1994.
Speaking of the episode hosted by "Curb Your Enthusiasm" creator Larry David, he had a hard time holding it together in one sketch last night. Not the funniest sketch but it's fun to watch when guest hosts lose control and start laughing unable to stop. Watch.
