There is a buzz that if this late night show doesn’t get their ratings up, that this season could be its last.
After so many years, I thought it would be ratings proof, but apparently not.
Last season hit some all time series lows and the unthinkable is starting to become thinkable.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Season Premiere Is Show’s Lowest-Rated Opener in 5 Years
“Saturday Night Live” kicked off its 45th season on Saturday with its lowest-rated season opener since 2014.
The episode, hosted by Woody Harrelson and featuring musical guest Billie Eilish, averaged a 4.1 rating/10 share household results in Live + Same Day data from Nielsen’s 56 metered markets. It also received a 1.6/10 among the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic in the 25 markets with local people meters tracked by Nielsen.
Those ratings are down 15% in households and 30 percent in adults 18-49 vs. from the Season 44 premiere episode (4.8 and 2.3) and mark the lowest rating posted by an “SNL” season premiere since Season 40 of the long-running NBC sketch show opened in 2014 to a 4.0 household rating in the metered markets and a 2.1/10 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters. That episode was hosted by “Jurassic World” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt. – Source
