Thursday, September 20, 2012: <i>Saturday Night Live: Primetime Election Special</i>

It's about six weeks until Election Day and Saturday Night Live is not going to let you forget it.

Since SNL loves political sketches so much, when it gets this close to a presidential election, occasional cold opens just aren't enough. That's where the Primetime Specials come in. Tonight is the first of two this season, with the second set to air next Thursday. There's no way that Jason Sudeikis's Mitt Romney can be nearly as entertaining to watch as Tina Fey's Sarah Palin from last time around, so let's hope one of the candidates provides enough material to last through the weekly show and the specials.

The Saturday Night Live: Primetime Election Special is on tonight at 8 PM. Most of NBC's Thursday night comedies return tonight with the Season 2 premiere of Up All Night on at 8:30 PM, the Season 9 premiere of The Office at 9 PM, and the Season 5 premiere of Parks & Recreation at 9:30 PM. Also on tonight is the series premiere of Tamar & Vince at 10 PM on WE, opposite the Season 2 finale of Wilfred on FX. Finally, tonight the Season 2 finale of Awkward is on MTV at 10:30 PM.
