Despite NBC's high hopes, it looks like last night's episode of Saturday Night Live featuring host and musical guest Justin Bieber didn't result in a ratings climb for the long-running sketch comedy show. According to Deadline, ratings of the episode were actually down by four percent compared to last week when Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine hosted.

When you think about it, this actually isn't all that surprising - given the 11:30 timeslot of the show and the average age of Bieber's fans, it's likely the show just aired too late for many to stay up and watch live.

But hey - at least we know Twitter watched.
