Justin Timberlake Gives ‘SNL’ Ratings Boost

Singer/host and cast of all-star pals put up best numbers since January 2012.

Bring it on down to ratingsville! Justin Timberlake not only brought out some of “Saturday Night Live”’s all-stars during his hosting/performing gig 
 this weekend, he also boosted the show to its best ratings in over a year.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Timberlake’s entry into the five-timers club put up preliminary Nielsen ratings of 5.9 with a 15 share. Those were the best numbers since a January 7, 2012 show hosted by Charles Barkley featuring musical guest Kelly Clarkson following a prime-time NFL playoff game.
