Every week, people across the United States watch Saturday Night Live at different times. Now for the last few episodes, that won’t be the case.
Yesterday, the Saturday Night Live Twitter account announced the last four hosts of the season. And while we were excited (mainly me for that Chris Pine slot on May 6), there was other news accompanying it.
For the first time ever, SNL will broadcast live across the United States for the last four episodes, which is great for everyone not on the East Coast. We still have to stay up until 11:30 to see the show live.
But that is something amazingly cool to think about. For the first time ever, we’re all going to be watching Saturday Night Live together. It isn’t going to be a mix of people tweeting about it after the fact or people watching it illegally.
We’re all going to get to see Jimmy Fallon, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy and the Rock all together. Everyone tweeting at the same time. (Everyone better be nice about Chris.) But in all seriousness, it is just going to be a cool thing to see. This show has a way of uniting people and making us all laugh.
So getting to all watch it at the same time across the country? That is something that we’ve never been able to do before. And maybe now it’ll always be this way.
Check back here on Culturess every week for our Saturday Night Live recaps. We make sure they’re up either the night of or the very next day! And believe us, you’re not going to want to miss these last two months of this season! They’re promising to be amazing episodes!
