The late night show averaged a 6.2 overnight rating among Nielsen Media’s metered market households, according to Deadline, and a 3.9 rating in adults aged 18-49.

Those are the highest numbers in both categories that “SNL” has had all season.

WATCH:

The cold opener entailed Kate McKinnon — dressed as Clinton — performing Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” in a tribute to both the singer (who died this week) and Clinton’s political career. (RELATED: SNL Holds Funeral For Hillary Clinton’s Political Career)
