Tina Fey leads 'Saturday Night Live' primetime 'Women of SNL' special
NBC will play tribute to "The Women of SNL" with a November sweeps special that should be pretty much exactly what it sounds like.
The two-hour "Women of SNL" special will air on Monday, November 1 from 9 p.m. to 11.
The special will include a wide assortment of clips featuring fan-favorite female-driven sketches from the 35-year history of "SNL," but it won't be entirely a clip show.
NBC says that the special will include "original material featuring Rachel Dratch, Nora Dunn, Tina Fey, Ana Gasteyer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Laraine Newman, Cheri Oteri, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Molly Shannon as well as current cast member Kristen Wiig."
