Lizzo has a big hit on the radio, but she wasn’t so successful on “Saturday Night Live.”
This past week’s episode was the lowest rated of the last three weeks with 4.587. It was just a little less than two weeks ago with Jerrod Carmichael and Gunna. And it was a lot less than last week with Jake Gyllenhaal and Camila Cabello, which got almost to 4.9 million.
These are small distinctions. But they still point to a couple of things, like the value of having big stars, and also maybe having a guest host and a musical guest for extra value. The next new show, on May 7, is with Benedict “Dr. Strange” Cumberbatch and Arcade Fire. Numbers will be up.
