Saturday Night Live: Relive 42 years of auditions
It’s been 41 years since the words “Live from New York, it’s Saturday night!” were first uttered. It was George Carlin who hosted that fateful premiere at studio 8H, and the sketch comedy world was never the same. (Fun fact: The reason the phrase is worded that way is because the show was originally called NBC’s Saturday Night. Even after the switch to the current name in 1977, it stuck).
