By Mary Montserrat-Howlett
NEW YORK(Hollywood Today/RushPRnews) 10/19/08 â€” The real Sarah Palin led Saturday Night Live to its highest overnight ratings in 14 years. â€œSNLâ€ did a 10.7 rating/24 share in the 56 metered markets, according to preliminary estimates released Sunday by Nielsen Media Research. It would be the highest-rated â€œSNLâ€ since March 12, 1994, when Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan was the host and Aretha Franklin the musical guest. â€œSNLâ€ would also be the third-highest-rated show of all last week, including primetime, following only ABCâ€™s â€œDancing With the Starsâ€ (12.0/18) and CBSâ€™ â€œCSIâ€ (11.2/17).
