And thankfully she delivered for all the fans that tuned in!
Melissa McCarthy’s first (but certainly not her last) time as host of Saturday Night Live was a big win for NBC. The episode drew in a 5.2 rating/13 share in metered-market households - up 4% from SNL‘s season premiere last week. It also was up 8% vs. the same night last year.
Bravo, Melissa! You deserve all the accolades girlfriend. You were something fierce and perfect last night!
