Saturday Night Live’s Season 44 premiere was a rating success. The premiere episode featured Adam Driver and musical guest Kanye “Ye” West. While there was some debate online regarding Kanye West’s musical performance it wasn’t enough to cause people to change the channel.
The Season 44 Saturday Night Live premiere was the second-highest rated premiere in the past six years. Alec Baldwin’s previous appearances on SNL continue to rank as many of the show’s highest episodes. The Season 44 premiere was only beat by the election results episode. The 2016 episode hosted by Margot Robbie featuring the Weeknd as musical guest and Alec Baldwin debuting his President Trump character topped Saturday’s premiere.
