SNL goes live in all time zones for season's final four episodes

Oh, and Melissa McCarthy, whose White House press secretary Sean Spicer impersonation has been a surprise breakout moment this year, will host on May 13.

For the first time in Saturday Night Live's 42-year history, it'll be live from NY in all four American time zones.

Western time zones will get to watch SNL live for the first time in the show's 40-year history, giving the entire country the chance to tune in together.

Usually, fans outside the eastern time zone have to wait for the repeat episode to air at 11:30pm local time, or catch clips of instant hit skits (like the unbelievable women's history month sketch), but with a new announcement, the show is changing the way fans watch the show. Eastern, 10:30 p.m. Central, 9:30 p.m. Mountain and 8:30 p.m. Pacific-for what NBC says is the first time in its 42-season history.

NBC said Tuesday that four episodes of "Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update" will air at 9 p.m. Thursday starting August 10. Musical guests for these shows will be announced at a later date. Then it will again three more times.

The new format will begin April 15 with host Jimmy Fallon.

As its 42nd season gradually draws to a close, Saturday Night Live is enjoying a boosted profile, thanks to the absurdities of the Trump administration and starry guest turns from the likes of Alec Baldwin and Melissa McCarthy.

-"Saturday Night Live" will soon really be live for everyone in America, and the news zingers found in the show's "Weekend Update" will continue this summer as "SNL" experiences its best ratings in more than twenty years. According to Nielsen, its live audience plus a week's worth of catch-up viewing is averaging more than 11 million, a 26% improvement over last season.
