Early Return for Pre-Election SNL

The cajillionth season of NBC's Saturday Night Live will premiere Sept. 13, affording it seven airings before Election Day — and thus 22 in total for the season, or two more than usual. As previously reported, a trio of special Thursday editions — now awkwardly entitled Saturday Night Live Weekend Update Thursday — will air at 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 9, 16 and 23. — Matt Mitovich
