Dua Lipa-Led SNL Delivers Largest Live+Same Day Audience Since October

Saturday Night Live returned on May 4 after a two week hiatus, and viewers flocked to an episode which seemed to get better as it continued.

With singer-actress Dua Lipa pulling double duty as host and musical guest, the sketch show delivered an average of 4,741,000 total viewers and 1,009,000 P18-49 viewers on May 4, 2024, per Nielsen live-plus-same-day data. That’s up +1% in total viewers and +3% in P18-49 from the most-recent episode — led by fellow Barbie alum Ryan Gosling on April 13.

Out of the 18 SNL episodes that have aired this season to-date, the Dua Lipa-led show is now the third most-watched in real-time, and the most-watched since the Oct. 28, 2023 episode hosted by Nate Bargatze.

The aforementioned numbers will grow substantially as delayed viewing data trickles in over the next week.
