Trump-Hosted ‘Saturday Night Live’ Draws 9.3 Million Viewers

Donald Trump couldn’t beat the team of Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake.

Last Saturday’s Trump-hosted “Saturday Night Live” averaged 9.3 million viewers, according to final Nielsen figures released Thursday.

NBC says it’s the most-watched edition of “SNL” since December 2013, when Fallon guest-hosted, joined by musical guest Timberlake. That broadcast drew 9.4 million viewers.

Trump’s appearance had been highly anticipated and sparked controversy in the aftermath of remarks made by the GOP presidential hopeful about Mexican immigrants. The show, which also featured musical guest Sia, was roundly panned by critics. (AP)
