Host Matthew McConaughey and musical guest Adele helped “Saturday Night Live” deliver its second-best ratings of the season in the metered markets.

The show drew a 2.3/11 in adults 18-49 and a 4.6/12 in households in the metered markets, up from last week’s 1.9/9 and 4.0/10. So far this season, only the Donald Trump/Sia show on Nov. 7 has recorded higher ratings.

Other than the Trump show, it’s the highest-rated “SNL” in adults 18-49 in a year, when McConaughey’s former “True Detective” co-star Woody Harrelson hosted.
