[VIDEO] Centre’s SNL appearance takes the spotlight once more


January 18, 2013        
Watch above as Saturday Night Live takes on the Vice Presidential Debate—both showing and mentioning Centre College at the beginning of the sketch!

Many in the Centre community were excited to see that Saturday Night Live ran a re-run on Jan. 12 of the Oct. 13, 2012, program that featured the Vice Presidential Debate in the cold opening. Since previously reporting on the overall media value of $53 million generated by the debate, many have asked about the value of the re-run. According to our partner TVEyes, the re-run reached 174 markets and an estimated 7.7 million viewers, for a total market publicity value of $690,701.
