Donald Trump's high-profile Saturday Night Live hosting stint gave the show its highest overnight ratings in three years.

According to NBC (via EW), Trump's SNL gig gave the show a 6.6 household rating on Saturday night (Nov. 7), its highest number since 2012. Sia was also featured as SNL's musical guest last night.

The Republican hopeful hosted SNL for the second time; he previously stopped by in 2004 as The Apprentice was picking up steam on NBC. A more comprehensive ratings breakdown will be available later this week.
