jimmy fallon justin timeberlake give snl highest ratings in 2 years

Um, duh! LOLz!

The minute that we heard Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake were going to be on Saturday Night Live together, we knew that it was going to be HIGHlarious!

And apparently everyone else thought so too because their show gave SNL the highest ratings they’ve had in almost two whole years!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the Dec. 21 episode averaged a 6.3 rating and 16 share among households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets.”

The last time the numbers came close to this was partially because the NFL gave a lead-in to the Charles Barkley hosted show on January 7th, 2012.

But what about with no help from the NFL?

We’d have to go all the way back to 2011 when –surprise! — JT was the host of the season finale, and the key demographic of adults 18-49 rated a 4.5.

We’re seeing a common denominator here.

And the last biggest rating of a Christmas special was allllllllll the way in 2004, which was hosted by Robert De Niro, and Destiny’s Child performed.

That’s almost a decade ago!!!

Could this mark a resurgence for SNL?

Who knows, but we’re just so happy that Lorne Michaels made this episode happen!

    Re: mlington – Give credit where credit is due. It was #1 because of Fallen/Timberlake, and not because of her lame, depressing 3 minutes.

    The episode sucked because of Timberlake. He's annoying, he can't act, he isn't funny, and he's just a tool in general. Having Madonna on there was stupid. Jimmy should have more confidence in himself to host without all the unnecessary people, because he's the highlight of the show. If he had to have anyone guest with him, Bill Hader would've been nice. Amy and/or Tina. But he picks the biggest douches ever to take his spotlight.

    Re: gross – Are you kidding me? it's not up to Fallon to choose & decide about hosting by himself or with some guest. They choose Timberlake & Fallon to host SNL because they are the perfect Duet………Jimmy & Justin are best friends since 10 years ago, they are the best when they appears on stage together, have you ever heard of History of Rap or #Hahtag skits?
    Saying Timberlake can't sing or act, is like saying "Hey look at me, i'm one of Timberlake's jealous bi(tc)hes".
    You're talking like you know nothing about Timberlake & Fallon.
