Miley Cyrus Scores Huge Ratings For SNL! But Not As Big As Justin Timberlake's!

One thing's for sure: if you want big ratings on Saturday Night Live, a pop star performer AND host always works!

But as big as Miley Cyrus has been lately, the SNL Crown still sits firmly on Justin Timberlake's head!

Mileybird's return to the late night show gave them their highest numbers since JT acted as both host and musical guest back in March.

Cyrus pulled in an audience of 6.7 million and won them a 2.7 rating in the demo.

Timberlake scored nearly 8.5 million viewers and got SNL a 3.4 rating the night he hosted and performed!

But before you declare Justin the hands down winner, there's an asterisk attached to these stats.

You see, Miley didn't get to scream "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!" until after MIDNIGHT on the East Coast! The college football game between Arizona State and Notre Dame forced SNL to go on 27 minutes later than scheduled!

And 27 minutes can make a HUGE difference in whether or not people tune in or not!

You may not have beaten JT, Miley but you proved yourself to be not only funny, but profitable!

Duh, like we didn't know that already!

    she would have gotten higher ratings than that clown had she gone on at the planned time.

    asterisk unnecessary. miley cyrus is not justin timerlake. the same exact people that watch snl at 11:30 are the same people watching it at 12…becuz snl is still on at 12 when it airs at 11:30 so it made absolutely no difference.

    not true. there is a difference between staying up until 1 am watching something, and 1:30 watching something, especially if you (like myself) wake up very early to get to work in the morning. I almost decided to go to sleep & catch it online the next day, and i'm sure many others actually did make that choice.

    Re: sarahRe: sarah – Wrong. Justin is hilarious. Cyrus is kinda funny.

    There were x amount of people that wanted to see a genuinely funny guy (Timberlake) with some musical talent, than x amount of people wanting to see a train wreck.
