According to NBC, more than 23.1 million viewers tuned in to watch the 40th anniversary special making it the network’s highest rated primetime entertainment show (not including the post-Super Bowl programs) since May 18, 2006 when Will & Grace aired its final episode.

NBC also reported that the SNL 40th Anniversary Special was the network’s top-rated special in a decade.
