The first Saturday Night Live ever


WORLD'S FIRST
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 Carlin.

Don Pardon was the first to introduce the show, shouting the famous 'Live from New York It's Saturday Night!'

The first Saturday Night Live was not live, it was on a six second delay for fear that George Carlin might say something offensive.
