Storyline

A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band, and a pop-cultural guest host each week. Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Trivia

The balcony level studio audience seats in Studio 8H, where Saturday Night Live is broadcast from, are actually seats on-loan from Yankees Stadium in the Bronx, New York. NY Yankees owner George M. Steinbrenner III loaned them out in 1975 with the assumption that Saturday Night Live wouldn't stay on the air long (they were expected back upon cancellation of the show). Partly out of both tradition and superstition, the seats are still in use to this day. Since then, NBC has had to pay out annual fines to the city of New York (a relatively minor business expense, all things considered). In addition, any time repair work is needed, repair people are sent directly to the studio to do work there, which is more expensive than taking seats to a repair shop. See more »

Its down but not out

Right now this show is in a transitional phase. The cast is very average (aside from Fallon and Hammond) and it might be time for Daddy Lorne to blow it up and start again. In my opinion no one is more annoying than Rachel Dratch! The fact that she was in five sketches and Fallon in one(excluding WU) the other night speaks volumes of the shows mediocrity. However, to those that say it'll never come back let me say you're mistaken. SNL has always rebounded from it's down years and it will continue to do so.
