According to NBC, SNL snagged a monumental 6.6 household rating on Saturday night, easily beating the season's previous high, a 4.5 rating, that came during the show's 41st season premiere last month. Coincidentally, that episode, which was hosted by Miley Cyrus, also featured a guest appearance by none other than Trump's presidential rival, Hillary Clinton.
