Prince Tributes Continue With SNL Retrospective, New Girl Encore

Joining the many TV networks that will honor music icon Prince in the wake of his death on Thursday, Fox and NBC plan to air tributes of their own.

In place of a more recent Saturday Night Live rerun on April 23, the Peacock Net will air SNL: Goodnight Sweet Prince at 11:30 pm, a clip show that highlights Prince’s memorable Studio 8H performances throughout the years.

The retrospective will include his musical guest gigs on episodes from 1981, 2006 and 2014, the last of which featured an unprecedented eight-minute jam session in the middle of the episode, instead of two separate performances during the broadcast.

Additionally, Fox will re-air Prince’s 2014 New Girl guest spot on Tuesday, April 26, at 9:30/8:30c, in place of a Grinder encore. The musician appears as himself in the episode, in which he invites Jess and Cece to a party he’s throwing, and the guys try to sneak their way in.

In addition to SNL and New Girl‘s memorials, VH1 will air Prince’s big-screen debut Purple Rain throughout the weekend. His 1996 interview on The Oprah Winfrey Show will also be rebroadcast this Saturday at 8/7c on OWN.
