Tina Fey as Sarah Palin on

NBC will air a pair of “Saturday Night Live” prime-time specials spoofing the November election.

The live “SNL” specials, which follow an election-cycle tradition for the satire series, will air Sept. 20 and Sept. 27, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt announced this week.

The programs take place prior to the scheduled presidential debates, which begin in October. The general election is Nov. 6.

In 2008, NBC aired several "SNL Weekend Update Specials" in Prime Time, as well as an election eve special. Most memorable was Tina Fey's impersonation of Sarah Palin and then Palin's cameo on the show.
