    It looks like SNL will not be live in the San Francisco Bay Area on Saturday, February 3. KNTV has an SNL Football clip show scheduled from 8 to 9 and other programming filling the rest of prime time. The scheduled show with Natalie Portman hosting is not scheduled until 11:30.

    Note that the SNL twitter page claims it will be live on the West Coast. What's going on in other Pacific Time Zone locales?

    Here's the SNL Twitter header:
    "The official Twitter for Saturday Night Live. Watch live coast to coast Saturdays at 11:30et/8:30pt on @nbc. FEBRUARY 3: Natalie Portman / @DuaLipa"

    Looks like someone messed up.

    The TitanTV listings for KNBC (Los Angeles) match the ones for KNTV - an hour-long cut of a 2007 episode with Peyton Manning and Carrie Underwood at 8, followed by "The NFL Honors" from 9 to 11. KING (Seattle) and KCRA (Sacramento) also lists this.

    Note that this is also what is scheduled in the east from 8 to 11 Eastern.

    My understanding is that the 1-hour special is more than a cut-down repeat episode, but is instead a "Best of Football" clip-show compilation of past sketches; however, it might be a reair of the same special they aired last year.

    I'm not in the Bay Area, but in the same time zone, and noticed that the SNL is on my Tivo Guide for 11:29pm instead of the 8:30 it's been for a little while now. It would make sense if it were on the same day as the Superbowl.

    I also show an SNL football special at 8pm, then there is a show called 'NFL Honors' at 9pm for a 2-hour slot. 11:00 looks like an NBC local news show.

    "NFL Honors" is when they will announce, among other things, this year's Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees. It may be that NBC decided that this was more important to air than a SNL episode that they would repeat 3 1/2 hours later anyway.

    It is a "best of football" show - NBC confirmed this at the end of its Millrose Games coverage
