Bruno Mars Scores ‘SNL’ Season High Ratings

Bruno Mars

The numbers are in. Bruno Mars helped “Saturday Night Live” earn season high ratings when he played host and performer this weekend.

The variety show garnered its best numbers of the season, with a 5.4 rating, according to Bruno’s label Atlantic Records. It was the strongest showing in seven months, besting episodes hosted by Seth MacFarlane, Daniel Craig, and Christina Applegate.

Not only did Bruno score in the ratings department, he also earned rave reviews for his performance. The first-time host and second-time performer pulled out all the stops, appearing in several sketches, including playing a sassy 17-year-old girl and acting alongside Tom Hanks.

In addition, he hit the stage to perform “Locked Out of Heaven” and “Young Girls” from this forthcoming album Unorthodox Jukebox, due December 11.

    It was a seriously funny episode, and I mean consistently through out the whole show. That hardly ever happens on SNL. I actually downloaded it today on iTunes cause it was so funny. And Bruno Mars is on my cool list now.

    I’m not surprised that the ratings for the last SNL were so good. Bruno Mars did a fantastic job! Who knew he was so good at his impersonations! I didn’t see the show live the other night since I was working late at DISH. I set up my Hopper to automatically record SNL so I could watch it the next morning. It’s nice that I can have the entire season on my DVR, and still have plenty of recording space left over. Bruno Mars is one of my favorite artists, and I hope he hosts again in the future.
