Nicki Minaj Helps ‘SNL’ Score Second-Highest Ratings This Season

Nicki Minaj

Not only is she topping the Billboard charts, but Nicki Minaj is proving to be a ratings powerhouse. The Harajuku Barbie helped “Saturday Night Live” earn its second highest ratings of the season.

Saturday’s episode, hosted by The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg, averaged a 3.2 rating with adults 18-49 in 25 markets, dominating the time slot and tying with the September 25 season premiere starring Amy Poehler and Katy Perry. It trailed only the January 8 show hosted by Jim Carrey.

The episode, which also boasted a guest appearance from Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, saw a one percent boost over last year’s program during the same time period.

The highly-viewed show featured the Young Money rapper performing her hits “Right Thru Me” and “Moment 4 Life.” In addition, she flexed her acting chops with appearances in the “Bride of Blackenstein” sketch and “Creep” digital short with comedy trio The Lonely Island.
