Saturday Night Live has enjoyed renewed success since President Trump’s election. Alec Baldwin has portrayed Donald Trump, Kate McKinnon has played Kellyanne Conway, and Melissa McCarthy has appeared as Press Secretary Sean Spicer. The political skits have repelled conservatives and Trump supporters while being embraced by those against the Trump presidency.
NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt released a statement via a press release regarding SNL’s renewed success.
“‘SNL’ — enjoying its most popular season in two decades — is part of the national conversation, and we thought it would be a great idea to broadcast to the west and mountain time zones live at the same time it’s being seen in the east and central time zone. That way, everyone is in on the joke at the same time. Kudos to Lorne Michaels, the producers and cast for making ‘SNL’ one of the most relevant and anticipated shows in the zeitgeist.”
