SNL enjoys a ratings resurgence thanks to its Trump material
About This Episode

In part due to the current political climate and our new president’s fondness for frequent critiques of the program, Saturday Night Live has been enjoying its highest ratings in more than 20 years. SNL now looks to capitalize on its renewed relevance by (maybe) launching a prime-time Weekend Update spin-off. In the video above, A.V. Clubbers Marah Eakin and Katie Rife discuss the details of the ratings surge and whether or not they would watch a Weekend Update spin-off.
