SNL to Achieve Highest Ratings This Season Odds

Oddsmakers believe the Saturday February 11 installment of SNL will receive the highest ratings yet this season with Alec Baldwin set to host.

BetOnline has made SNL breaking its season’s rating record a slight favorite of -130, though these odds are for entertainment purposes.  Betting on this event are currently by request only at BetOnline.

Baldwin’s impression of Donald Trump throughout the US Presidential campaign and after his ultimate election as the 45th President of the United States have garnered the Hollywood actor plenty of praise, albeit not from Trump himself.

Trump has unloaded on Baldwin a few times already via Twitter.

Just tried watching Saturday Night Live - unwatchable! Totally biased, not funny and the Baldwin impersonation just can't get any worse. Sad

Last week’s skits included Baldwin being egged on by advisor Steve Bannon (portrayed as the Grim Reaper) to taunt allies of the United States via the telephone, most notably the Prime Minister of Australia.

The skit that made the Twitterverse light up was special guest Melissa McCarthy’s portrayal of White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer getting into testy back-and-fourths with the press pool.

That episode brought SNL its highest ratings in 20 years. 

In addition to the advance press coverage of Baldwin’s hosting of this Saturday’s show, there are also rumors swirling around that Trump arch-nemesis Rosie O’Donnell could be set to play the role of Steve Bannon.

A gaffe by Trump Counselor Kellyanne Conway in which she hyped the President’s daughter Ivanka Trump’s clothing line on air against apparent government ethics rules, could provide further fodder for SNL writers this week.
