Lindsay Lohan's guest-hosting gig on a late-night talk show produced the show's best ratings this year, reports The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed.

Lohan hosted Monday's installment of E!'s "Chelsea Lately," filling in for Chelsea Handler. The episode ranked as the show's most-watched night since October 2012, with 890,000 total viewers. That represents a 42% increase from the show's year-to-date average, the piece notes.

Lohan poked fun of herself on the guest spot, while also interviewing "Orphan Black" actor Dylan Bruce.

Lohan has a sitdown interview with Oprah Winfrey coming up on OWN, scheduled to air Aug. 18.
