According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake are a great combination for Saturday Night Live. Fallon and Timberlake closed out 2013 as the host and musical guest, and delivered the show's best numbers in two years. The show averaged a 6.3 rating and 16 share among households in Nielsen's 56 metered markets. The last time the series approached such a high was January 7th, 2012. Charles Barkley hosted, but the show got a boost from an NFL overrun.
The last time a Christmas episode of the show performed so well was the 2004 edition, which featured Destiny's Child and Robert De Niro.
