Saturday Night Live – Down the Memory Lane

For over 43 years, Saturday Night Live has been keeping its audiences enthralled with its exciting content and rightfully so! This show was initially launched on October 11, 1975, with a small cast, including the likes of Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, and Chevy Chase.

Over the years and across its 44 seasons, it has brought in some exciting hosts and personalities and developed the careers of many comedians like Chris Rock, Mike Myers and the likes.

In fact, the recent 43rd season kicked off with Ryan Gosling hosting the show and the famous Jay-Z visiting as a guest! The 850-episode strong TV series is broadcast from the famous Comcast Building.

There is an Oomph to it

Saturday Night Live has garnered a lot of publicity and popularity over the last 43 years. This popularity can be attributed to the show’s comic sketches which are a reflection of everyday politics and culture in the country.

Another reason why this show is so famous can be owed to the fact that a celebrity hosts each show in each season. Also, there is another musician guest who performs in the same episode. The celebrity guest also happens to perform in the comic sketches along with the other actors. All this and more have struck the right chords with the audiences, and this resulted in a total of 64 Primetime Emmy Awards in their kitty.
