Yearning for the old SNL days? Reruns start airing again Sept. 25. On Vh1. Wait. SNL on Vh1? Yes.

There was a time and a place, before Hulu and NBC.com broke Saturday Night Live into little online pieces, when you could watch SNL reruns on cable, whether it was Comedy Central or E! Now, after a couple of years off the cable airwaves, SNL reruns are coming back. To Vh1.

Seriously? Seriously.

Vh1 is kicking off its SNL reruns with a nine-hour marathon from Season 32 this Saturday, Sept. 25 – not so coincidentally, the night the new 36th season debuts on NBC.

Other SNL repeats on the Vh1 schedule include 1:30 p.m. Sunday, then noon, 5 and 6 p.m. each weekday next week. As with past rebroadcasts of the show by other cable networks, it's cut down from 90 minutes to an hour, so you're likely to remember the old days even more fondly.

I don't know why. Then again, I stopped wondering why about Vh1 years ago. Slightly related, the network also is airing two episodes of Chappelle's Show late late Saturday night.

  1. all RIGHT—cause i have such fond memories of that time Peyton Manning hosted…and who can forget that time Forrest Whittaker hosted?? oh and that one time Dwight from The Office hosted…man those really were the best. (actually i kid–the one with Forrest Whittaker had some bright spots–off the top of my head i recall the skit where he played a really dim but excited contestent on some game show.) i do wish they would go back a year further and do the Peter Saarsgaard one again tho. that one was killer!
