    NBC's legendary late night comedy show that has gone on making sketches and spoofs for many years now. Every show a guest host and musical guests along to go with the "Not ready for prime time players", and the warm up band which has featured the likes of G. E. Smith and legendary saxophonist Lenny Picket.

    The show was created by Lorne Michaels and produced many popular characters and regular skits including the Coneheads, The Blues Brothers, Church Lady, Wayne's World, Weekend Update, Deep Thoughts, The Roxbury Guys, and Saturday TV Funhouse (with the Ambiguously Gay Duo). It also featured spoofs of popular culture and politics, with many caricature of both political candidates and presidents popping up throughout the years.

    Many careers have been launched thanks to the success of the show including Dan Aykroyd, Eddie Murphy, Bill Murray, Adam Sandler, Dennis Miller, Kristen Wiig, David Spade, Will Ferrell, Andy Samberg, and many more.

    Sidenote: John Belushi, Chris Farley, Gilda Radner, and (longtime SNL announcer) Don Pardo are and always will be missed

    Interesting Note: SNL debuted in 1975 on NBC. It was the absolute only new show that debuted during that season for NBC that was renewed for a second season by the network.
