“Saturday Night Live” recorded its lowest overnight ratings of the season with host Chris Hemsworth — although the drop wasn’t that bad.

The Dec. 12 episode drew a 1.8/9 in adults 18-49 in the overnight metered markets and a 3.8/10 in households. That’s a season low in both measures, and the second straight decline for the show.

Saturday’s episode was down 0.2 in both 18-49 and households from the previous week. The previous season low was a 1.9 (twice) in the demo and a 3.9 in households for the Amy Schumer episode on Oct. 10.
