“Saturday Night Live” Scores Big with Star-Studded Holiday Edition

Saturday Night Live scored impressive ratings over the weekend, thanks to the return of Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake and surprise appearances by music legends Madonna, Paul McCartney and last surviving Bee Gee Barry Gibb.

SNL’s holiday edition scored the show’s highest ratings in nearly two years. Saturday’s airing was also the top-rated SNL pre-Christmas broadcast in nine years in the metered-market households.
