Jimmy Fallon-Hosted SNL Generates Show's Biggest Increase Ever

The Dec. 21 telecast of "Saturday Night Live," with host Jimmy Fallon and musical guest Justin Timberlake, has generated the show's biggest increase ever in adult 18-49 rating and total viewers going from "live plus same day" ratings to "live plus seven day" results.

In 18-49, the Dec. 21 edition grew by 1.83 rating points to a 5.55 rating from a 3.72, and in total viewers, the increase was 3.673 million persons, to 13.117 million from 9.444 million.

These are "SNL's" top L+7 results in three years, since the Jan. 8, 2011 edition with host Jim Carrey and musical guest The Black Keys, (5.79 in 18-49, 13.166 million viewers overall), which followed an NFL Wild Card overrun. Excluding NFL nights, these are SNL's best L+7 figures since May 8, 2010 with host Betty White and musical guest Jay-Z (5.97 in 18-49, 14.952 million viewers overall).
