So if you were watching Saturday Night Live, on a Sunday night it was a great show to watch. It all started when it premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, the first host was George Carlin, comedian and actor.  It was known as NBC’s Saturday Night and later it became Saturday Night Live.  It was a variety show created by Lorne Michaels and develop by Dick Ebersol.

The show’s comedy sketches, which parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest (who usually delivers an opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast) and features performances by a musical guest. An episode normally begins with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!,” beginning the show proper.

This year was the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live and the past guest and celebrities came and celebrate memorable sketch they like and live in front of the audience.
