GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump gave “Saturday Night Live” its biggest overnight rating since early 2012. 

SNL had a 6.6 household rating on Saturday Night, Entertainment Weekly reported, beating this season’s previous high — the episode hosted by Miley Cyrus during which Hillary Clinton made an appearance. 

Trump’s overnight rating was 47 percent higher than the Miley/Hillary episode, according to EW. 

A Jan. 7, 2012, episode hosted by Charles Barkley is still the SNL ratings champ.
