Saturday Night Live Will Actually Be Live in Every Time Zone

'SNL' is Going Live Across All Time Zones for the First Time Ever

'SNL' is Going Live Across All Time Zones for the First Time Ever

Saturday Night Live is about to make history by airing, well, live across the country. Her caricature on SNL of the gum-chewing White House press secretary Sean Spicer definitely caters to the kind of jokes that fans in different time zones won't want to miss.

In the Eastern and Central time zones, the schedule remains unchanged. That means that while east coasters are watching the show at 11:30pm, fans in the Central zone will watch at 10:30, 9:30 Mountain and 8:30 Pacific.

NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt explained in a statement that the goal of this move was to help fill the gaps between seasons of the late-night comedy show. Musical guests for the final four episodes will be announced at a later date.

Monopoly Is Giving Three Classic Pieces the Boot
Monopoly fans had 64 possible options to pick from, including 56 new pieces, that included the hashtag, emoji and computer. More than 4.3 million of you, from 146 countries, voted and the new Monopoly pieces have now been revealed.

Said Variety: "Political turmoil has been very, very good to "Saturday Night Live, '" while New York Magazine added, "Every single sketch 'SNL" wrote for Alec Baldwin as Trump was comedically masterful". These episodes will be hosted by Chris Pine on May 6, Melissa McCarthy on May 13, and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson for the season finale on May 20.

NBC reduced SNL's ad load by 30 percent this season, removing two commercial breaks per episode, though there has still been no sign of the show's first branded content spots, which NBCUniversal said last month would be coming in the next few episodes.

"SNL" has been enjoying bumper ratings in recent months, partly down to the amusing ongoing lampoons of life inside the Trump White House, with Alec Baldwin doing an impression of the president and Melissa McCarthy of his freaky press secretary, Sean Spicer.

Knicks' Carmelo Anthony Addresses Clippers Rumors
While the players have been stubborn about embracing the offense, Hornacek was just as stubborn at the start of training camp. The Knicks bench got NY back with an 11-2 run late in the fourth period to cut the gap to eight, 109-101, with 1:32 left.

"It was the kind of moment "Saturday Night Live" history was made of: an unannounced guest appearance so ideal that it took even the live audience a few moments to register what was actually happening", Ms. Gilbert wrote, concluding, "In one eight-minute scene "Saturday Night Live" reminded viewers that there's no more potent institution when it comes to political satire".

The telecast changes on "Saturday Night Live" will try to capitalize on the show's renewed popularity.

Citrus County man missing from Carnival cruise ship
The Coast Guard has dispatched an HC-144 Ocean Sentry and has diverted the Coast Guard Cutter Charles Sexton to join the search. Carnival Victory is now on a four-night cruise to the Western Caribbean out of Miami, Florida with one stop in Cozumel, Mexico.
