My generation was in on SNL from the beginning. Having just arrived at college for my Freshman year when the show debuted, it was an amazingly crazy and wonderful experience! For the first several weeks we kept saying "What IS this!" and "They let THIS on TV?!" Ha-Ha! Don't know how I missed this book for so many years, but I put it on hold when I saw it was available. I wanted this to be a great read with new information about the show. It was, but only to a point and I agree with the other reviewer that the writing style of separate quotes from the cast members, hosts, show crew and network people is choppy and takes getting used to. I liked the stories, but the format made the experience unfulfilling.
