NBC and the producers of Saturday Night Live can now stop their hand-wringing. After posting the lowest ratings in its history two weeks ago with a show hosted by SNL alumnus Bill Hader, the late-night sketch-comedy series made a decisive comeback on Saturday, according to preliminary Nielsen results. The show, which featured Jim Carrey and musical guest Iggy Azalea, posted a 4.1 household rating and a 10 share, representing the highest numbers it has received since March 8, when it was hosted by Lena Denham. Among the 18-49 age group, the show drew a 2.2 rating, up 5 percent from the same weekend a year ago. Meanwhile, the New York Post indicates that producers of the show may have been ticked off by the arrival of Iggy, accompanied by her entourage of more than 60 people, many of whom camped out in her dressing room.
