TV Land to Broadcast 12-Hour ‘Saturday Night Live’ Marathon Today

Catch up on the latest and greatest of “Saturday Night Live” this Labor Day weekend on TV Land! The network will be showing a 12-hour “Saturday Night Live” marathon on Saturday, August 30th from 11am to 11pm ET/PT, showcasing fan favorites from recent years of the late night sketch show.

The marathon will feature episodes hosted by entertainment all-stars Justin Timberlake, Tina Fey, Melissa McCarthy, Jennifer Aniston, Jerry Seinfeld and TV Land’s own legendary Betty White. The event will also include “Best of” specials for some of the hottest names from “SNL” – Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler and 16-time host Alec Baldwin.

Some of the marathon’s highlights include:

  • Justin Timberlake’s iconic sketches, including the legendary digital short “D*** in a Box” and “The Barry Gibb Talk Show” with Jimmy Fallon;
  • Tina Fey’s famous impression of Sarah Palin, selling “The Sarah Palin Network”;
  • Alec Baldwin’s “Schweddy Balls” sketch, and Betty White’s spin on it years later, with her “Dusty Muffin”;
  • Melissa McCarthy as the hilariously inappropriate Arlene, who has an overpowering crush on her co-worker;
  • Jimmy Fallon performing his impression of Jerry Seinfeld…right next to Jerry Seinfeld;
  • Jennifer Aniston in the very first appearance of Jimmy Fallon’s “Nick Burns: Your Company’s Computer Guy”;
  • Amy Poehler as an obnoxiously precocious version of Dakota Fanning on “The Dakota Fanning Show.”

Fans can tweet along with their favorite sketches during the marathon by tweeting @tvland and connecting with TV Land on Facebook and Tumblr.
