This day marks the 44th anniversary of the hit late-night variety show, Saturday Night Live. On October 11, 1975, NBC’s Saturday Night made its television debut. The show was created by Lorne Michaels under the original name of NBC’s Saturday Night. The show quickly evolved into a staple of American television and is one of the longest-running shows to date.
A comedian knows they have made it once they get to 30 Rock. Saturday Night Live has created the biggest stars in film and television including Adam Sandler, Robert Downey Jr., Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and many more. SNL may have launched the careers of its cast members into national stardom, but the Village is where many of them first got their start and continue to call their home.
