The Tesla and SpaceX frontman’s “SNL” hosting debut tied for third-highest this season with a 4.8 household rating in the earliest available TV ratings, Nielsen’s household numbers.

The past three original “Saturday Night Live” episodes — March 27 hosted by Maya Rudolph, April 3 hosted by Daniel Kaluuya and April 10 hosted by Carey Mulligan — each had a 3.6 household rating.

The season-high came from the Election Week “SNL,” when Dave Chappelle emceed the show to a 5.7 household rating. The Oct. 3, 2020 Season 46 premiere, hosted by Chris Rock, got a 5.4. Those rankings remain the same in later, more stable Nielsen numbers.
