- 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.
