In past election years, NBC has typically rolled out special segments of “Saturday Night Live’s” “Weekend Update” in primetime, often coming after the three presidential debates. The first one in the 2020 cycle between Donald Trump and his challenger Joe Biden is set for Sept. 29. “SNL” for its part is scheduled to return Oct. 3, complete with Jim Carrey portraying Biden, and run for five consecutive shows, taking it through the Nov. 3 election day.

From Universal Television and Broadway Video, “Closer Look Thursday” will be executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Mike Shoemaker.
