"EW" Poll Names Justin Timberlake "Mr. Saturday Night 2013"

Dana Edelson/NBCFor the second year in a row, readers of Entertainment Weekly's website EW.com have voted to determine who the best Saturday Night Live host was this past season.  The winner, perhaps to no one's surprise, is Justin Timberlake.

Voting went on throughout the season until finally it came down to six names: Seth MacFarlane, Martin Short, Justin Timberlake, Melissa McCarthy, Kristin Wiig and Ben Affleck.  Justin won handily, capturing just over 48 percent of the vote.  The runner-up was Melissa McCarthy, with just under 22 percent of the vote. 

Justin's episode, which aired in March, marked his fifth time as host, and as such, he was inducted into the exclusive Five-Timers Club, with help from guest stars like Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.  Over 90 minutes, Justin appeared as Elton John, reprised his classic "D**k in a Box" character with Andy Samberg, gave us another installment of the ongoing sidewalk hawker "Bring it on down to..." sketch and much more.   And if that wasn't enough to prove his talent, Justin was also the musical guest that night.

It's notable that three other chart-topping musicians who hosted this year did not make the final five: Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber and Adam Levine.
