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

Executive Producer Dick Ebersol left the show in 1985, in order to be a stay-at-home father to his children. His wife, Susan Saint James, was starring in Kate & Allie (1984), and Ebersol promised her that he would work from home while she worked on her show. Lorne Michaels was persuaded to rejoin the show, and has produced it ever since. See more »

Your TV's on and off relationship!
13 July 2002 | by (Your Critic of Critics) – See all my reviews

I like to describe this show like a on and off relationship because one year this show is funny and the next it sucks and it's like that year after year. Still it always manages to make you laugh and it has been the breakthrough show for some of the greatest comedians of all-time.
