Jonah Hill-Hosted 'Saturday Night Live' Ratings Drop Sharply From Last Week
Oscar-nominated actor Jonah Hill took the helm of Saturday Night Live one week following Linday Lohan's stint. Unfortunately for Hill, who was touting his upcoming comedy 21 Jump Street, he couldn't pull in the ratings.
With a guest appearance by Tom Hanks and musical performances by The Shins, SNL drew a 4.3 rating in the metered-market households, down sharply from Lohan's performance that notched a 5.5.
In the Local People Meters, the Hill-led late-night show averaged a 2.6 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic, down double digits from last week.
Last night's episode included sketches featuring Andy Samberg's version of Sarah Palin, the return of Stefon, a Japanese game show bit, Taran Killam's Rush Limbaugh impression and Oscar talk.
Modern Family star Sofia Vergara will host the April 7 episode with musical guest One Direction.
