Now Twitch will be feeding the long-running sketch comedy series in a 16-hour digital marathon.
Social streaming platform Twitch has teamed up with NBC Universal for a 48-hour marathon of the very best bits of Saturday Night Live. GO. But, come nightfall, be sure to watch SNL for the final episode of season 43.
This marathon leading up to the SNL finale will begin tomorrow, May 17, at 6:00 p.m. ET.
A Twitch blog post notes a few of the performances viewers can expect to see, including Darrell Hammond's take on Bill Clinton and Adam Sandler's "Lunch Lady Land" song. You can also sign up through Facebook.
We're told that not only is the hip-hop star excited about more people being able to attend now, but that Highline is a "safer and bigger" venue, as opposed to the gentleman's club.
Twitch hasn't given much away, but promises celebrity hosts and guests, a collection of Tina Fey sketches, commercial parodies, iconic impressions, digital shorts and more.
"Each "SNL" sketch is a snapshot of its time, making it the ideal show to unite our global community across generations as they comment on the commentary", said Jane Weedon, Twitch's director of business development.
The former SNL head writer and cast member is returning to Studio 8H this weekend to host the sketch show's season 43 closer alongside musical guest Nicki Minaj, and to celebrate, she's looking back at her illustrious body of work in cartoon form. You'll be able to co-stream the marathon, meaning you can share NBC's video feed on Twitch and provide your own commentary.
This isn't the first marathon that Twitch has ran, of course, but it's the first block of programming that was dedicated to comedy sketches.
NBC's "SNL" is produced in association with Broadway Video and executive produced by show creator Lorne Michaels.
