“SNL” Suffers Lowest Ratings So Far This Year with Oscar Isaac, Charli XCX Outing


“Saturday Night Live” is in another ratings decline.

The return show on January 15th scored just over 5 million viewers. But ever since then, it’s been all downhill.

This past Saturday was the worst outing yet. Just 4.4 million tuned in for Oscar Isaac as host and Charli XCX as musical guest.

That’s the fourth decline in a row and down 300,000 viewers from the previous week with John Mulaney.

This coming weekend will feature Zoë Kravitz With Musical Guest Rosalía, cashing in on Kravitz’s starring in the mega hit “The Batman.” Will it work? Only if there’s a good parody of “The Batman.” And maybe a guest cameo from either Kravitz’s father, Lenny, or boyfriend, Channing Tatum with his dog.
