Tracy Morgan’s hosting stint on “Saturday Night Live” — his first full gig since being badly injured in a car accident last year — pulled slightly better ratings than last week’s show.
In the overnight metered markets, “SNL” (which was delayed about 15 minutes thanks to a college football overrun) scored a 2.0 rating in adults 18-49, up from last week’s 1.9, and a 4.2/11 in households, up from 3.9/10 a week ago. The 18-49 rating ties the mark for the season premiere on Oct. 3. “SNL” was the night’s top show, primetime or late-night, in the metered markets.
Morgan was joined by his former “30 Rock” co-stars Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Jane Krakowski and Jack McBrayer on the show, and Larry David appeared in the cold open as Sen. Bernie Sanders.
