Seth MacFarlane was a big hit on the Saturday Night Live premier according to The Hollywood Reporter:
The Seth MacFarlane-hosted episode pulled a 4.8 households rating and 12 share, just shy of 2011′s 5.1 rating/13 share that ran a week later after a week that saw more primetime premieres.
In markets reporting adults 18-49, the show is up a tenth of a point for a 2.8 rating in the demo.
That said the skit getting the most attention is the Ryan Lochte skit during The Weekend Update where Seth MacFarlane NAILED Lochte with a triple axle impression that was so spot on it might go down as legendary in the lore of SNL history. Check out this clip of TMZ catching up with the douchebag swimmer when trying to ask him about the skit:
How great is that skit, huh??? You can catch the rest of the SNL episode here, but there’s more. Turns out Ryan Lochte did eventually see the skit and boy, according to this CNN clip he looks defeated…
What a bitch. And he’s full of shit because he said that he wasn’t used to doing interviews but if you watch the TMZ clip Ryan Lochte isn’t exactly representing the US Department of Education all that well. What a fucking shit stain. That said, SNL doesn’t know how to stay controversial so they will probably invite the Olympic swimmer on the show to redeem himself in some way. I miss MADtv.Tweet
