It's that time of year again.… When you stand a chance at winning Saturday Night Live tickets! Through August 31, you can request a pair of tickets to the 2013–14 season of the venerable sketch show—just send your contact info to

Here are the rules: You can only send one ticket request per household, and your schedule will have to be pretty open, since—if you win—your tickets will be for a random date and time (choosing a taping isn't an option). For more of the fine print, head to NBC. Ready, set, go!
