While many of us were watching holiday classics like Elf and How The Grinch Stole Christmas with our families this weekend, Jimmy Fallon was on NBC making Saturday Night Live history by garnering the highest ratings in almost two years. Though some viewers have been mourning the 2012 loss of essential cast members Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg, SNL brought back its most popular host, Jimmy Kimmel, and musical guest, Justin Timberlake, to ensure that the SNL Christmas special would be a success. With cameos by Paul McCartney, Madonna, and Barry Gibb in addition to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s appearance in the “Weekend Update”, the episode was full of surprises and soon-to-be viral hits.
Justin Timberlake’s hidden talents as a comedian have come to fruition in his Saturday Night Live appearances and as both a musical guest and host, he has quickly become a late-night favorite. His comedic chemistry with friend Jimmy Fallon make them a pair not to be missed so be sure to catch this hilarious duo in their “Wrappinville” (below!) and “Family Feud” skits or watch the full episode here for a little extra holiday cheer!
