'Saturday Night Live' Ratings Up With Jeremy Renner
With Maroon 5 as the musical guest, the action star's turn became the show's second-highest rating of the season thus far.
Jeremy Renner took the reins for the first time on Saturday Night Live, showing off his singing abilities, so how did the late-night sketch show do in the ratings?
It isn't exactly headline-grabbing, but the Avengers and Bourne Legacy star's turn improved a tenth from Anne Hathaway's hosting stint the revious week by averaging a 5.1 rating in metered-market households.
Renner's episode was also SNL's second-highest overnights of the season, behind only Bruno Mars' Oct. 20 gig which averaged a 5.4.
In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, last night's SNL -- which featured a cameo by Gov. Chris Christie and musical performances by Maroon 5, including an Adam Levine appearance in "The Stand Off" short -- averaged a 2.7 rating among adults 18-49, a small improvement from last week as well.
It was announced during the broadcast that Django Unchained's Jamie Foxx will host Dec. 8 with musical guest Ne-Yo. Foxx hosted SNL in 2000.
