SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
What was the world's first Saturday Night Live show?
At the request of Johhny Carson to
end the weekend showing of the 'Best of Carson' Lorne Michaels was hired
to produce a new variety show called NBC's Saturday Night, and given studio 8H
in NBC's Rockefeller Plaza.
At that time ABC aired a show called Saturday Night
Live with Howard Cosell which packed it in in 1976 and in March 1977 NBC's Saturday
Night became known as Saturday Night Live or SNL for short.
The first episode aired on October 11 1975 and featured
comedians Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, Garrett Morris, John
Belushi, Jane Curtin and Laraine Newman.
The first host of Saturday Night Live was George
Don Pardon was
the first to introduce the show, shouting the famous 'Live from New York It's
first Saturday Night Live was not live, it was on a six second delay for fear
that George Carlin might say something offensive.
