Saturday Night Live to Air Special on Eve of Election Day

Posted on

Alec Baldwin is getting one last shot at that Donald Trump impression.

On Tuesday, NBC announced that Saturday Night Live would be airing a 2016 SNL Election Special on Nov. 7, the eve of Election Day.

A press release for the one-hour special promises to “retrace the highlights of the current presidential campaign” using clips of recent SNL sketches.

Despite the GOP nominee’s outspoken criticism of the NBC sketch comedy show, SNL hasn’t backed down, and on Saturday the show took on last week’s third and final debate, tapping host Tom Hanks to play moderator Chris Wallace, with Baldwin and Kate McKinnon returning to their respective roles as presidential hopeful Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Meanwhile, Trump — who hosted the iconic show less than one year ago — has made it clear he now wants it canceled after weeks of lampooning.

“Watched Saturday Night Live hit job on me,” he tweeted Oct. 16. “Time to retire the boring and unfunny show. Alec Baldwin portrayal stinks. Media rigging election!”

Saturday Night Live airs Saturdays (11:30 p.m. ET), and the 2016 SNL Election Special airs Nov. 7 at 10 p.m. ET, both on NBC.
