Lindsay Lohan's SNL appearance might not have gotten the critics' raves, but it did bring in the viewers. Her fourth time hosting the show was the season's highest rated regular performance of the season. (A late-starting telecast in January scored a bigger number this season).

There was at least one person who didn't think Lindsay bombed and that was Lindsay Lohan herself. Entertainment website TMZ reported that the actress feels "proud" of the episode.
