    I really want to know how Real Music Live did right after SNL last night. Haley Reinhart performed and I hope she had a good audience!

    That’s unusually high for a rerun.

    Can you get full Saturday ratings up please! Want to see how OUAT reruns did!

    This has 100% to do with the fact that NFL was in primetime right before the broadcast. The last two years they aired a New episode on the night after NFL Wildcard Saturday and they both were the highest rated episodes of the season.

    “The last two years they aired a New episode on the night after NFL Wildcard Saturday and they both were the highest rated episodes of the season.”

    My memory is rarely to be trusted, but I think that a Betty White hosted SNL later in the season topped one of those, but you’re right in that the Wild Card double header SNL is typically at the top of the ratings. Strange they didn’t go with a new episode last night.

    Agreed with Bill. A new episode would have made much more sense.

    I think the reason they did not air a new episode is because New Years fell on a Tuesday. The SNL writing process normally starts on a Monday. Probably just wanted to give the cast and crew the holiday off.

    Oh right I forgot it had football lead-in.

    I love Louie, but snl is such a terrible show, and I will never watch it again.
