Watch Saturday Night Live Online - Full Episodes
Saturday Night Live is the nation's longest running sketch comedy show. Throughout its three decade long run, SNL has featured nearly every major celebrity and band, with such comedy greats as Dan Akroyd and Eddie Murphy. Saturday Night Live has maintained the same format throughout its run, beginning with a sketch and interspersing its brief comedy elements with comments from the host and an occasional song from the featured band. Saturday Night LIve is currently directed by the actor-comedian Lorne Michaels, a popular Canadian director who is known for his sarcastic humor and political satire.
Not only has Saturday Night Live come to define the sketch comedy format, it has also had an immeasurable impact on television in general. SNL has won more than 20 Emmy awards for excellence in comedy, and it has been ranked as one of the top ten television shows of all time by TV Guide. Many of the comedians who got their start on Saturday Night Live went on to long and glorious comedy careers, with many of the comedians such as Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler parlaying their SNL success into feature films and television shows.
For a show that has been airing for more than 3 decades, Saturday Night Live has maintained surprisingly constant ratings. Aside from a brief period in the 1980s, SNL has retained a top 20 spot in the ratings during its time slot. Saturday Night Live has also produced a number of spin-offs, including books and movies. Many Saturday Night Live characters have been made into feature films, including the Blues Brothers and Pat the Androgynous Person.
Saturday Night Live has been taped at Studio 8H in the GE Building ever since its inception. The studio was specifically designed for SNL, featuring multiple staging areas, a live audience, and the ability to have live performances from bands and DJs. Each episode of Saturday Night Live takes five days to produce, with the writers and creative staff going through several dozen concepts for every sketch that makes it on the show. Saturday Night Live currently airs at 11:30 PM Eastern Time on NBC, although reruns are aired on both Comedy Central and E! Entertainment Television.
