What Time Does Saturday Night Live Air?

Saturday Night Live is back for season 43! Even though it's pretty much a given that new SNL episodes will air on Saturday nights (hi!), there will be some slight changes to the time slot this year — depending on which part of the country you're in, that is. This season, SNL will air live coast-to-coast, meaning it will air during a different time slot in each time zone. So, exactly what time is SNL on?

Live coast to coast. All season long. #SNL
