Publisher Description

Saturday Night is the intimate history of the original Saturday Night Live, from its beginnings as an outlaw program produced by an unruly band of renegades from the comedy underground to a TV institution that made stars of John Belushi, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Gilda Radner, Jane Curtin, Laraine Newman, Garrett Morris, Joe Piscopo and Eddie Murphy.  


This is the book that revealed to the world what really happened behind the scenes during the first ten years of this groundbreaking program, from the battles SNL fought with NBC to the battles fought within the show itself. It's all here: The love affairs, betrayals, rivalries, drug problems, overnight successes, and bitter failures, mixed with the creation of some of the most outrageous and original comedy ever. "It reads like a thriller," said the Associated Press, "and may be the best book ever written about television." 


Available for the first time in ebook format, this edition features nearly fifty photographs of cast, crew and sketches.

Illuminating

Wonderful, educational and occasionally shocking. Probably the definitive book on at least the first ten years of the landmark show. Far superior to the Shales book insofar as it is written in a narrative format. Only quibble is that there are several easily verifiable facts that are misreported which, even for the 2011 digital edition, have not been corrected.

A great read

An exhaustively detailed look at the early days of the show. Highly entertaining.
