Saturday Night Live has already been seeing a big ratings bump this season with Tina Fey’s impersonation of Sarah Palin, but when Palin and Fey were on the same show? SNL ratings skyrocketed – earning the show its best ratings in 14 years!
Sarah Palin’s SNL guest spot was highly anticipated probably not so much for what she would do on the sketch comedy series, as much as for the hope of seeing Tina Fey and Palin go head to head. Instead, viewers got a walk by of the real and fake Palin in the opening sketch.
A March 1994 SNL with skater Nancy Kerrigan as guest host was previously the highest rated of the series.
Early estimates put the Sarah Palin/Tina Fey (and hey, shout outs to guest host Josh Brolin, Mark Wahlberg and Alec Baldwin are in order too!) SNL ratings at around 14 million.
