For those who remember the show since they weren't out on Saturday nights, this is a good book to refresh those memories of TV comedic genius weekend after weekend. The only glaring admission is The Jim Carroll Band being omitted altogether even though his "City Drops Into the Night" left the New York studio audience in complete awestruck silence. Probably the only time that had ever happened on the show. Overall a nice souvenir collection of what was once possible on network television. Even with the exceptions of 'In Living Color', 'Fridays' and 'Second City TV', SNL was always the benchmark. Cast member Profiles, index. ( )
