Premise: Landmark, Emmy-winning satire from an ever-changing company of 'Not Ready for Prime Time Players' who rode the variety show to fame, including (to name just a few of its celebrated grads) Eddie Murphy, Dana Carvey, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Al Franken and Mike Myers. From its debut, with Andy Kaufman's memorably bizarre rendition of the 'Mighty Mouse' theme, through John Belushi's Samurai and Gilda Radner's Roseanne Roseannadanna, 'SNL' forever changed the landscape of TV comedy.
