After testing several episodes “live in all time zones” last year, Saturday Night Live will be live again from coast to coast this fall.
Lorne Michaels and NBC have decided to extend the experiment into season 43 because of the popularity on social media, mainly because if people were on Facebook and Twitter in western time zones there were some spoiler alerts from people on the east coast.
“Saturday Night Live” season 43 premieres on September 30th at 11:30PM Eastern with host Ryan Gosling and musical guest Jay-Z. Alec Baldwin will also be back as his very popular President Donald Trump.
Gal Gadot and Sam Smith will be on the October 7th show, and Kumail Nanjiani and Pink on October 14th.
