TVLine readers gave the episode an average grade of C-.

In the demo, excluding last season’s historic Dec. 21 telecast hosted by Eddie Murphy and with musical guest Lizzo, the Season 46 premiere was the top-rated SNL episode in two years, since the Sept. 29, 2018 season opener with Adam Driver and Kanye West.

SNL‘s return also lists the No. 1 most-watched television telecast of the week to date on the Big 4 channels. And No. 2-rated, following only The Masked Singer’s 1.87.

The Live+Very Day amounts published in our ranks column do not reflect a show’s overall appearance. And they given the prolonged use of postponed playback via DVR and streaming stages. And out-of-home viewing. Unless denoted as finals, these figures (Nielsen fast nationals) aim to represent biases or superlatives. 

NBC lately verified that the entire SNL cast from season 45. And cast, including Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong, and Kenan Thompson, will be recovering for season 46. Jim Carrey is all set to repeat as Joe Biden in the forthcoming season as the staff plays to a limited studio audience.

Rock’s presence on the show’s 46th yearly season premiere will mark the comedian’s third SNL receiving gig. And then begins just after the Sept. 27 launch of his starring role in the fourth part of FX’s drama series Fargo.

The SNL gain marks Megan Thee Stallion’s vocal guest appearance. Her latest collection Suga has scored more than 900 million streams. And with its hit only “Savage” going three-times platinum.
