Fans eager to watch “Saturday Night Live’s” about Joe Biden’s electoral victory crawled up the wall as the sketch show took place in the back seat of the Clemson vs Notre Dame college football match.
Viewers took to social media to vent their anger because they had to watch the game last twice as long when NBC delayed about 40 minutes of the drafting program broadcast.
“Sooo NBC will quit football and start SNL late at a time when people want to see it !?”, one wrote on Twitter.
Another user wrote: “I can’t believe I’m going to say this, but this soccer match needs to end well so I can watch SNL.”
“I̵7;ve never hated football more, this should be SNL,” tweeted another.
SNL fans have also blamed the lack of coronavirus precautions and social exclusion during the crowded celebrations on the pitch in South Bend, Indiana following Fighting Irish’s 47-40 win.
“This delay with #SNL is coming to 2020,” one person tweeted. “First, we need to complete our super event.”
WFAN’s Mike Francesa wrote on Twitter: “Too much for social exclusion in South Bend.”
And even after the game, some local news was made in some areas before SNL started – worrying viewers.
“IMMEDIATELY IF THE NEWS Show Me FRIENDS SNL – HES,” wrote one person.
