Yikes. I know “The Simpsons” isn’t getting ratings. But “SNL” is having its own troubles.
On Saturday they had the star of a movie that made $187 million over the weekend– Benedict Cumberbatch. They also have a beloved rock band, Arcade Fire. And still that did nothing to light up the TV sets.
Ratings for this past Saturday were 4.5 million, about average for the last few weeks and nothing special. Also, last year at this time Elon Musk hosted with Miley Cyrus as musical guest. The ratings were 7.2 million.
Overall, ratings are on a down trend since the season opener- 4.9 million– and highs of over 5 million during the winter.
