Donald Trump Was a Ratings Hit on SNL

The ratings for Donald Trump's episode of Saturday Night Live are in, and they were, wait for it...yuuuge.

Bad jokes about Trump's linguistic quirks aside, the episode drew a 6.6 rating, which is the highest SNL has seen since 2012. The episode had a 47 percent higher rating than the next highest episode this season, which was the season premiere hosted by Miley Cyrus. That episode also featured a surprise appearance from Hillary Clinton.

According to Entertainment Weekly, hard numbers won't be available until later on in the week, but the episode could have drawn 10 million viewers.
