An appearance by Governor Sarah Palin (clip below) gave Saturday Night Live it highest overnight ratings in 14 years.
According to NBC, the show is up 76% over the opening weeks of last season. That is much in thanks to the return of former cast member and head writer Tina Fey, who has portrayed Palin.
Saturday’s episode, hosted by actor Josh Brolin, averaged a 10.7 rating and 24 share in the 56 Nielsen local metered markets. That was the best number since Nancy Kerrigan hosted the show on March 12, 1994.
Blech! I always hate the SNL skits that bring the real person on behind the person parodying them (i.e. De Niro & Pesci, etc.). Perilously unfunny!
