'Saturday Night Live' Hits Highest Ratings in 6 Years

Saturday Night Live is on fire right now.

The long-running NBC show hit a 6-year high with this weekend’s episode, hosted by Alec Baldwin, who brought back his famed Donald Trump impression.

It also featured the epic return of Melissa McCarthy as Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

Ed Sheeran served as the musical guest.

According to TVLine.com, SNL scored a 7.2 rating, the highest since January 2011 when host Jim Carrey and musical guest The Black Keys brought in a 7.8.

If you compare the episode’s rating to those from February 2016 – one year ago – it represents a whopping 50 percent increase.

    I can’t stand Alec Baldwin but he does a spot on version of President Trump.

    That was one of the funniest episode’s of SNL I’ve seen in a long time! Melissa McCarthy was just hilarious. And I loved the People’s Court with Alec Baldwin suing the judge’s and Putin is his witness in court. FUNNY
