    This time 'Live' means live for everyone. 

    Beginning on April 15, the show will broadcast live to all time zones for the first time in its history and will continue with all three original episodes in May. 

    "'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 zones," said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment.

    "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," he continued.

    The hosts for the final four shows are Jimmy Fallon, Chris Pine, Melissa McCarthy and Dwayne Johnson. 

    In the Eastern and Central time zones, the schedule remains unchanged.

    In the Mountain Time Zone, episodes will air at 9:30 p.m. For viewers in the Pacific Time Zone, episodes will air at 8:30 p.m.
