Equal time on SNL?

Remember those FCC rules requiring broadcasters to give equal time to candidates for office?

They're basically designed to ensure that coverage of campaigns is fair and balanced. But do they apply to comedy shows as well?

I ask this question because now that Donald Trump got a ton of face time on Saturday Night Live, John Kasich and Lindsey Graham are demanding from NBC equal time.
