The show has been on and off television in reruns. It's been on FX, BET, Centric, and is now on FXX, where it airs anywhere between one in the morning to 9:00 am, often as a one-hour block or a mini-marathon. All five seasons are out on DVD as well, but beware: most episodes are [[ClumsyCopyrightCensorship edited to remove any and all traces of licensed songs]], such as characters WaxingLyrical, characters singing the actual song, popular 1990s songs playing during the Fly Girls interstitials, and the music video parodies. [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes If you want to see the show as it was back in the 1990s]], your best bets are the FXX reruns or YouTube[[note]]if you happen upon an uncut version, as most of them are the edited DVD cuts[[/note]].

The series was largely seen as ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' for the black and Hispanic set (since ''SNL'' didn't have a lot of black cast members at the time[[note]]back in the 1990s, they had ChrisRock -- who left because of creative differences, Tim Meadows, who didn't become popular until the mid-1990s, and Ellen Cleghorne, who was lost in the shuffle of white, male cast members, but is considered the first black female repertory player who lasted more than one season. Compare to today, where they have five black cast members -- Kenan Thompson, Jay Pharoah, Michael Che, Sasheer Zamata, and Leslie Jones -- which is the most black cast members the show has ever had in one cast[[/note]] and wouldn't get a Hispanic cast member until Horatio Sanz was hired in 1998[[note]]since then, ''SNL'' has had two other Hispanic cast members besides Sanz: Fred Armisen, who is now the longest-running Hispanic cast member [2002-2013] and Noel Wells, the first Hispanic female cast member, the first Hispanic cast member to be Mexican, and the most short-lived Hispanic cast member [was only on the show for the 39th season -- 2013-2014][[/note]]), featuring hip-hop and R&B musical acts.
