*After “Saturday Night Live” ratings took a dip with host Christoph Waltz several weeks ago, the NBC series rebounded over the weekend with host Kevin Hart and musical guest Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.
In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, the episode averaged a 2.8 rating, 13 share in adults 18-49. “SNL” delivered the top rating of the night among ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX in the Local People Meters, more than doubling all primetime programming on those networks.
In the Local People Meters, “Saturday Night Live” scored its highest 18-49 rating since the Adam Levine/Kendrick Lamar broadcast on Jan. 26, and matched the show’s highest Local People Meter rating since Nov. 3, with host Louis C.K. and musical guest fun.
Watch some of Hart’s “SNL” highlights below, including a skit in which he portrays Oscar nominee Quevenzhane Wallis as the new Pope.
