As of 2019, hour-long reruns from all eras of the show are played most Saturdays in the 10:00 p.m. time slot on NBC. These versions have one musical performance instead of two, and a few sketches per episode from the original airing are taken out of these broadcasts. Also, approximately half of "Weekend Update" is removed so that an episode can air in one hour. See more
