Not even Lil Nas X‘s highly publicized pants split or ‘Queen’s Gambit’ star Anya Taylor-Joy could save ‘SNL’ from the royal ratings slump that was its season 46 finale.
Viewership = 3.5 million (approx.)
May 22 brought with it the finale of ‘SNL’s 46th season. Hosted by Anya Taylor-Joy, controversial rapper-singer Lil Nas X acted as the musical guest and cranked gave his latest singles – ‘Montero (Call Me By Your Name)’ and ‘Sun Goes Down’ – their inaugural televised live performance debut.
And though social media was set alight by the star’s blazing stage showing, particularly the wardrobe malfunction that saw the 22-year-old’s pants rip in the middle of pole choreography, ratings figures reveal the hype was not enough to secure a commendable season end for the historic sketch show.
In fact, reports have it the episode’s ratings mark the lowest ever for an ‘SNL’ season finale.
“The finale, which sent strong signals that multiple popular long-time cast members may be leaving, drew a 3.5 household Live+Same Day rating in the 44 metered local markets and a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets with local people meters.
That was even with the rating deliveries last week and is tied for season lows among both households and 18-49 in the metered markets.”
So that cringeworthy Lil’ Nas X performance was SNL attempt to draw in viewers, lol
They tried it.
Right they’re pathetic
Well that’s what happens when you have a garbage artist perform garbage music!
This is not lil nas x fault
No it ain’t his fault but he sho ain’t help! If they thought he was gonna draw in numbers being it was the finale they were sadly mistaken. His performances were TRAAAAAAAASH!! Like worst of the worst trash!!!!! 🗑
I’m trying to be shocked by this
Ratings are down for everything. What were the ratings for Billboard Awards? Has that been reported? I forgot it came on lol 😬🥱
K I’m back.
“2020 Billboard Music Awards on NBC Fall 62% From Last Year to New Record Low in Ratings – 3.6 million views”
I guess y’all should also shade the entire music industry? They both pulled the same numbers basically 😬
Looks like SNL actually held a higher percentage than the star studded awards show after further reading.
I need to start a blog at this point 🥱
Wow that was actually 2020!! I’m scared to see 2021’s ratings 😬😬
I’ma leave THAT reporting to y’all LMAO
Last update – I’m reading 2.3 million but not sure if that includes DVR. If it does, they need to just hang it up and hand this s*** over to TikTok and Facebook/IG, people aren’t watching TV like they used to and Nielsen is an old outdated ratings system as well.
Y I K E S
Not u about to start a blog before me.
My blog is still coming tho.
No one’s asking
3.5 household Live+Same Day rating in the 44 markets
1.5 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets
He might be trash, but those ratings are HIGHER than most primetime network shows.
The CW shows are lucky to get a 0.2 in adults 18-49, the only demo advertisers care about. Most big network primetime shows are stuck at 0.5 18-49 demo.
His new song is tanking didn’t even move up from snl controversy it backfired on him 😂😂😂😂😂
I’m glad lol something need to humble his ass a little bit, his ego will eventually destroy his career. We don’t even know if he’s an album artist or not.
