'Saturday Night Live' Scores Best Showing Since Betty White
Saturday was a big day for NBC.
After a big showing with the AFC playoff game between the Jets-Colts, the network scored with the first Saturday Night Live of the new year with host Jim Carrey and musical guest The Black Keys.
SNL received a 7.8 rating/16 share in metered-market households, making it the highest showing since Betty White's appearance with Jay-Z on May 8, 2010.
Carrey opened the show with a spoof of awards contender Black Swan, and took on Mila Kunis' role in the film. Watch the skit below.
The live late-night sketch comedy show was delayed about 15 minutes on the East Coast due to overrun of the Jets-Colts game.
