    Hmmm.

    Will be interesting to see how the local NBC affiliate handles this.

    They've never ran SNL because of it's "risque" content.
    Farmed it out to the local CW affiliate.

    They've always covered the prime time SNL specials with other programming.

    Interesting. If you happen to catch what they do, I'd be interested to hear about it. I'm not often exposed to situations like this, so my curiousity is purely personal.

    They didn't give any additional data. sorry.

    Well, they aired SNL.

    Either they didn't have enough warning to find something to replace it with,
    or didn't have 90 minutes of filler, if it had been a 2 hour special they could have thrown in a movie,
    or due to the political season, decided to go ahead and show it.

    Or, since it was a rerun (?) they had time to go over it with a fine tooth comb.

    I think I saw something about another prime time election special on Monday.

    I'm still surprised they can overwrite it at all if they wish. Thanks for the followup.

    Just got confirmation they are airing the special tonight as well.

    Must be the political thing, and they surely wouldn't not take advantage of a ratings elephant during sweeps.

    This is a matter of Federal law, going back to the Golden Age of Radio. NBC can't force their affiliate to carry "SNL"...

    ...but since the affiliate has turned it down, NBC has the right to offer "SNL" to a different station...

    Exact citation: 47 CFR 73.658.
