Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga power “SNL” to record ratings


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The pairing of Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga proved to be a winning combination for “Saturday Night Live” as the late-night variety program scored its highest-rated finale in seven years.

It was a star-studded affair, with Bradley Cooper of “The Hangover” fame appearing for the “Weekend Update” segment and late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon (an “SNL” alum) appearing on the “Barry Gibb Talk Show” sketch.

The star power led to a 7.0 rating, 17 share in metered-market household averages, the best number since May 15, 2004, according to THR. That rating also was up 21% over last year’s season finale, which featured Alec Baldwin and Tom Petty.

Think “SNL” producers will try and team this duo up again at some point in the near future?
