Chris Rock might not have been the best host this time around on Saturday Night Live, but ratings-wise, he brought viewers in: The evening’s audience was bigger than it has been since the show’s Feb. 1 episode when Melissa McCarthy hosted.

Besides scoring the show’s highest ratings in metered-market households since that McCarthy episode, the show also ranked high in the target 18-49 demographic, bringing in more viewers than it has since Jim Parsons’ March 1 episode.

This episode marked Rock’s second time hosting; the first was in 1996. True Detective and The Hunger GamesWoody Harrelson is set to host SNL on Nov. 15 with musical guest Kendrick Lamar.
