Ratings for “Saturday Night Live” returned to normal levels after last week’s Donald Trump-fueled boost, but numbers for the Elizabeth Banks-hosted show were in line with the show’s other episodes this season.

In metered markets, Saturday’s show — which acknoweldged the Paris terrorist attacks in a brief opening but otherwise steered clear of them — drew a 1.9/9 in adults 18-49 and a 4.0/10 in households.

The three non-Trump episodes this season have averaged a 1.97 in adults 18-49 in the metered markets and a 4.2 in households.
