Seemingly out of nowhere, Snapchat has become the ultimate source of entertainment. Watching friends鈥 and celebs鈥 snap stories is the ultimate way to while away the hours. (Seriously, WHERE does the time go when you鈥檙e on Snapchat?). And now, the social network is pushing its entertainment value even further, with actual Snap shows.

NBC and Snapchat have signed a contract to create 鈥渟hows鈥 for the app鈥檚 audience. Material from聽Saturday Night Live, The Voice聽and聽The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will all premiere on the ephemeral social network. However, these clips won鈥檛聽just聽be repurposed from the original show, but completely new material.


One such show will be聽The Voice on Snapchat, which will collect performances sent in from Snapchat users and then be judged by the coaches from the show. And early in September, E! will premiere an exclusive weekly Snapchat show that runs through pop culture.


We鈥檙e guessing that NBC鈥檚 snap stories are going to put all of ours to shame. OR we鈥檙e going to have to amp up production value on our brunch snaps with appearances from special guest stars,聽脿 la聽Tonight Show. Either way, it looks like Snapchat is an entertainment force to be reckoned with.

What shows do you want to watch on Snapchat? Let us know @BritandCo!
