The big buzz surrounding Tina Fey‘s uncanny impersonation of Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is really paying off for the American TV network, NBC. The network’s Thursday night show starring Tina Fey, 30 Rock, opened to series-best ratings. Then two nights later, on Saturday night, Fey’s appearance as Gov. Sarah Palin alongside Sen. John McCain on NBC‘s live comedy show, Saturday Night Live, drove the show to its second-best overnight rating score in a decade.
NBC owes Tina Fey a big ‘thank you’ basket!
