Saturday Night Live is having its best season since the election of Barack Obama. In Live +7 day measurement, SNL is averaging 11.310 million total viewers and 3.56 rating in the adults 18-49 demo.

With a 4.7 household rating in 56 local Nielsen metered markets last night’s show was the #1 telecast of the night on broadcast TV, outrating all prime time programs on those networks.

Hosted by Kristen Wiig, the show included a skit involving Anderson Cooper, Jake Tapper and a bunch of CNN contributors who kept repeating themselves.

The cold open even got the reaction from Pres.-elect Trump who was featured in the skit, played again by Alec Baldwin.
