Ratings For Ben Stiller's SNL Gig Were "Eh"!

Filed under: TV NewsBen Stiller

ben-stiller-snl-ratings-dow.jpg

Not too good, not too great. Just on par-for-the-course, if you catch our drift.

Despite surprise appearances from Hugh Jackman, Kenny G and Zoolander, Saturday Night Live was down in the ratings from the two episodes previous to it. Seems Ben Stiller doesn't have the star power of Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy, averaging a 4.8 rating/12 share. In comparison, Alex's numbers with 5.2 and Melissa's were 5.1.

So, it wasn't a huge slide, but a slide none-the-less.

Hopefully Tower Heist will do better. BTW, where was Eddie Murphy?!

Do it, Eddie! It'll be like pre-gaming for the Oscars! LOLz!

Eddie Murphy has NEVER hosted Saturday Night Live since he left the show on less-than-fantastic terms with creator Lorne Michaels in 1984.

Apparently, the drama heated up when

Right on, Jon! We want Eddie to do a great job as well!

During a recent interview, former Oscar host Jon Stewart opened up about Eddie Murphy as the next host, and he's totally got the Tower Heist star's back:

"Listen, the last person I would give advice to is Eddie Murphy. He's gonna (effing) kill it. He's the type of guy they haven't had in a while. He's a movie star, but he's a great comic – sort of similar to Billy Crystal in his 'multi-ability.'"

"With guys like me, you get the sense that at some level, deep down inside, we think it's (effing) ridiculous. Now that can make for a very entertaining show. But it's good to mix it up."

We hope you're right, Jon! We'd seriously LOVE to see Eddie kill it! And then we'd love to see him make some good movies again! LOLz!

Make it happen, Murphy!

Do U agree with Jon Stewart? Will Eddie Murphy "kill it" as an Oscar host???

Eddie Murphy Confirms That He WILL Host Next Year's Oscars!

eddie murphy confirms he will host oscars

This is your chance, Eddie! We'll forget ALL about The Haunted Mansion and Dr. Doolittle 1 & 2 and Norbit and Nutty Professor II: The Klumps and Meet Dave if you do this one right! LOLz.

Earlier today, we heard that next year's Oscars show producer Brett Ratner wants Eddie Murphy to host the show, because after directing him in Tower Heist he thinks that Eddie is the ONLY man for the job!

While we've been conditioned to be skeptical about nearly everything Eddie Murphy-related over the years, we were thinking that this could be his chance to prove us wrong and turn it all around.

Looks like he's going to get that chance, because he's reportedly officially agreed to host the 84th Academy Awards!

Let's do this thing, Eddie! Remind us why we loved you in Coming to America, Trading Places, and Beverly Hills Cop!

Good luck!
