Saturday night's episode, with Maroon 5 as the musical guest, earned the show's best numbers since Melissa McCarthy hosted Oct. 1.

The Charlie Day-hosted edition of NBC's Saturday Night Live was the NBC show's top-rated episode in more than a month.

Saturday night's SNL, which featured Maroon 5 as the musical guest, averaged a 4.9 rating/11 share in the metered-market households. That makes it the top-rated SNL since the Oct. 1 episode, hosted by Melissa McCarthy.

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, SNL averaged a 2.8/1 among adults 18-49, the show's best number since its Justin Timberlake-hosted season finale in May.

On Saturday night's episode, Day helped skewer the Kardashians, Moammar Gadhafi and Justin Bieber.

Day also was joined onstage during his monologue by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia co-star Danny Devito. The latter encouraged Day to give the most to his first turn on the show, which Day took as a cue to sing a song titled "Charlie Day Day."
