According to reports, the "SNL" episode with Lindsay Lohan aired recently has become the second most watched episode of the show's ongoing season. Despite a lot of criticism that usually comes her way, Lohan was able to fetch good ratings for this weekend’s "Saturday Night Live". Even though critics hold an absolutely different view of her recent appearance on the show, the ratings tell a completely different story. The episode is behind only the football-inflated January 7 telecast.

If we compare the numbers, Lohan surpasses past hosts like Alec Baldwin, Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy and even Jimmy Fallon. This is a great achievement for the young artist who has been struggling with her career lately.

Lindsay Lohan’s mother, Dina Lohan, expressed her excitement and joy over her daughter’s appearance on "Saturday Night Live", saying, "I'm so excited for her. She has worked so hard all week rehearsing. I'm so proud of her. Her brothers Mike and Cody and sister, Ali, were all with her. Thank you for believing in us."

Lindsay Lohan was also congratulated by several other people close to the troubled actress. They had gathered along with Dina in executive producer Lorne Michaels' office to watch the show. Dina also invited close family friend and former "Real Housewives of New York" star Jill Zarin and her husband, Bobby, to watch her daughter perform on screen.

Jill Zarin also shared her thoughts about Lohan’s effort, saying, "She's a different kid. It's very hard to be famous, period. I can't imagine doing it at her age. But the one thing she has that a lot of famous people don't have is real talent -- and I can say that as someone that used to be on a reality show."

After the show ended, Lohan, her guests, cast and crew headed to Kibo, a Japanese restaurant in New York's Gramercy area, where the actress went from table to table thanking everyone.

Lindsay Lohan said she was quite overwhelmed to be on the show. Her exacts words were: "I feel lucky and grateful to be here tonight and that's why I really want to thank all of my friends at 'SNL' who trusted me enough to have me back. This studio feels like home to me," then suddenly, a mock "house arrest" style alarm sounded when she started to move. "Wait, so the alarm goes off if I leave the stage? I thought it was if I left the studio!" she said, to supportive laughs.
