Like millions of other viewers I enjoyed the recent Saturday Night Live anniversary special. Like any series that spans 40 years, SNL has had its ups and downs.
Truth be told, I haven’t watched SNL regularly for years… more like decades. But I sure tuned in to see the special.
My favorite parts were the scenes from the first years with the original cast and Celebrity Jeopardy, but even the stuff that wasn’t great was enjoyable.
Norm Macdonald sent out a series of tweets about preparations in the week leading up to the SNL 40th Special and they’re entertaining and informative. Thankfully the Gothamist pulled them all together for an easy read.
