In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, the latest "SNL" episode averaged a 3.0 rating in adults 18-49, making it the No.1 telecast of the night.

In this year's Christmas edition, Fallon brought former "SNL" regulars Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Tracy Morgan, Rachel Dratch, Horatio Sanz and Chris Kattan. It also featured a cameo by "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" actor Jude Law with Michael Buble as the musical guest.
