Saturday Night Live Tribute

I have been a fan of Saturday Night Live ever since I can remember.  It has been a Saturday night staple in many households.  I still look up who's hosting and who the musical guest will be every week.
The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975 and has won several awards, including 21 Primetime Emmy Awards, a Peabody Award, and three Writers Guild of America Awards. In 2000, it was inducted into the National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

Many actors and comedians started their careers on SNL and have become very famous.  Many movies  have also come from SNL skits. 
  • Blues Brothers - John Belushi & Dan Akroyd (1980)
