In late-night metered market ratings (via NBC's press release):

The telecast, the first "SNL" to air live coast to coast (11:30 p.m. ET, 8:30 p.m. PT) and with 11:30 encores in western markets, generated the show's top 18-49 and total-viewer results since the Feb. 11 telecast hosted by Alec Baldwin and featuring musical guest Ed Sheeran (3.10 in 18-49, 10.843 million viewers overall).

They're also the show's second highest results since Nov. 12, 2016 with host Dave Chappelle and musical guest A Tribe Called Quest (3.15 in 18-49, 8.691 million viewer), the first ''SNL" to follow the November Presidential Election
