Forget about dump Trump, it was more of a Trump bump.

This weekend's Donald Trump hosted "Saturday Night Live" scored the show's best ratings in almost four years.

According to NBC, 'SNL' averaged a 6.6 rating and 16 share in metered-market households on Saturday night. Those are the show's best overnight numbers since Jan. 7, 2012, when Charles Barkley hosted with musical guest Kelly Clarkson.

The former "Celebrity Apprentice" host was also heckled by Larry David, who shouted "Trump's a racist!" at the end of The Donald's monologue.

The interruption was part of a scripted gag after a Hispanic advocacy group offered to give a $5,000 bounty to any audience member who shouted "Trump's a racist" during the live broadcast.
