As the end of the 42nd season of Saturday Night Live comes to an end, the show has seen a noticeable boost in its profile thanks in part to the quirks of the Trump administration. Guest stars like Melissa McCarthy and Alec Baldwin have made regular appearances throughout the season that have helped propel viewership past numbers the show has not seen in years. It has truly been a season that has made many comedy content creators consider CD replication vs duplication to showcase and spread their unique takes on the current state of the country to their fan base.
For the first time in its storied history, Saturday Night Live will air live in all time zones, nationwide. The show will be broadcast live simultaneously across the country for its final four shows of the season — April 15, May 6, 13 and 20.
Hosts for the four remaining Season 24 episodes will beL Jimmy Fallon, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy and Dwayne Johnson.
Saturday Night Live segment Weekend Update is getting a primetime look!
Beginning Thursday, August 10th (9/8C), Colin Jost and Michael Che will host a four-week primetime run of the popular rundown of news and biting commentary. Additional SNL cast members will make appearances.
NBC is expanding its Saturday Night Live app to close out the show’s fortieth season. The upgraded app expands to iPad and Android devices and includes hundreds of additional fan-requested sketches and new emojis.
The upgraded app comes as SNL’s final three shows of the season are about to debut – with Scarlett Johannson hosting on May 2nd, Reese Witherspoon hosting on May 9th and Louis CK hosting the season finale on May 16th.
