Last Saturday’s SNL was neither very smoothly performed nor memorably written, but with Robert De Niro as the (somewhat reluctant) guest host, it was certainly watched:

    The Robert De Niro-hosted Dec. 7 edition of NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” drew the largest audience for the latenight series since a Britney Spears-fronted episode in February.

    According to Nielsen, nearly 9.6 million viewers watched the broadcast, which also featured musical guest Norah Jones — outdrawing every show in primetime on the evening.

    ….Paradoxically, De Niro’s appearance did little to boost the performance of his new movie, “Analyze That,” which opened the same weekend to a disappointing $11 million. [Variety]

Norah was swell even if Bob is clearly not meant for live performance.
