Saturday Night Live goes to the Emmys

Monday night’s 70th annual prime-time Emmy awards ceremony had a decidedly Saturday Night Live feel to it. Let us count the ways, literally, in our recap on the Network News & Reviews page.

Plus, NBC sneak-previews the new comedy series I Feel Bad with back-to-back episodes following the Wednesday, Sept. 19th season finale of America’s Got Talent. Our review is here.
