SNL': Is There a New Episode Airing This Week?

With Donald Trumps health care bill pulled from a vote in the House of Representatives Friday, youd think SNL would have plenty of hilarious fodder for politically themed sketches and Weekend Update monologues this weekend. But, unfortunately, fans hoping to watch Alec Baldwins Trump, Kate McKinnons Kellyanne Conway and Melissa McCarthys Sean Spicer try desperately to spin the failure into a win will have to wait. Saturday Night Live is on hiatus for Saturday, March 25. In fact, the three-week break extends for another week, so dont expect a new episode on Saturday, April 1, either likely a wise move with the NCAA Final Four happening that night.   ...Read More... http://www.thewrap.com/snl-new-episode-airing-week/

‘SNL’ to Air Live Coast-to-Coast for Rest of the Season - TheWrap

" SNL — enjoying its most popular season in two decades — is part of the national conversation, and we thought it would be a great idea to broadcast to the west and mountain time zones live at the same time it’s being seen in the east and central time zones," said Robert Greenblatt, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. "That way, everyone is in on the joke at the same time. Kudos to Lorne Michaels, the producers and cast for making SNL one of the most relevant and anticipated shows in the zeitgeist."
