America’s favorite Live show on Saturday night, SNL will be back live this weekend!
How? The same shitty way other shows are back. It’s excruciating to watch, really. People talking over one another because the technology isn’t quite up to a national telecast from your den.
SNL will air remotely produced content at its usual Saturday time slot on the broadcast network, a surprise return from its coronavirus-induced hiatus, according to a spokesperson for NBC.
NBC is owned by NBCUniversal, the parent company of NBC News.
The show will include a version of “Weekend Update” and other skits from cast members, though it was not immediately clear if the performances would be live. It will air at 11:30 p.m. ET.
SNL, like most major broadcast shows that features guests and audiences, has been on hiatus since mid-March.
