    Saturday Night Live
    Trump is still bringing the bump.

    With Donald Trump hosting, Saturday Night Live jumped to its biggest overnight rating since 2012.

    According to NBC, SNL had a whopping 6.6 household rating on Saturday night, easily beating the season’s previous high: the 41st season premiere last month, hosted by Miley Cyrus and with a guest appearance by none other than … Hillary Clinton. In fact, Trump’s overnight rating was 47 percent higher than the Miley/Hillary episode.

    The previous high was held by an episode that aired Jan. 7, 2012, hosted by Charles Barkley with musical guest Kelly Clarkson.

    Saturday night marked the Republican presidential hopeful’s second time hosting the iconic late-night series. He previously acted as host in 2004 when Trump was still the host of NBC’s The Apprentice.

    Trump was pretty confident he’d boost SNL’s numbers. “I get the best ratings,” he reportedly said when asked about the appearance.

    The actual number of SNL viewers will be available later in the week. But for point of comparison, the season premiere delivered 6.3 million viewers, so Trump’s episode could be close to 10 million.

    Trump, who continues to lead the GOP primary polls, previously fueled an August debate on Fox News Channel to a record 24 million viewers. A September debate on CNN drew an also impressive 23 million viewers.

    For more, here’s EW’s recap of Trump’s appearance on SNL, including video clips of Trump’s sketches.

    The best part about that abortion last night was Larry David. The guy has so much more talent than anyone there - it was embarrassing.

    People love watching a trainwreck, just look at the Kardashains or Fox news.

    About 2 decades ago I read an article in Omni magazine regarding the politics of chimpanzees. The most successful chimp was not the biggest and strongest, it was the chimp who could get and hold the most attention. Example; A chimp who learned he could make a huge noise by pounding on a 55 gallon drum then send it crashing down a hill. The most successful females were the ones who were the best sexual teases / most promiscuous.

    At the time most sociologists felt the researcher was stretching the truth / over-reaching and even if the facts were as presented it really applied weakly to humans who were much more evolved.

    Yeah, we watched too. Probably been a decade since I watched snl and I couldn't believe how many cast members there were and I didn't know a single one of them.
