Here is the info about SNL from the offical site:

Saturday Night Live, NBC's Emmy-winning late-night comedy showcase, enters its landmark, Silver Anniversary 25th Season with one of the strongest ensembles in its history for another year of laughs, surprises and great performances.
Over the last two and a half decades, SNL has launched the careers of many of the brightest comedy performers of a generation. Thus far, the program, which has been called "a weekly miracle" by Tom Shales, has been nominated for 62 Emmy Awards and has won 14. SNL has been honored with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award and the show continues to garner the highest ratings of any late-night television program, entertaining millions each week.

SNL's impressive lineup of guest hosts last season featured some of the biggest stars of film and television including: Cameron Diaz, Kelsey Grammer, Jennifer Love Hewitt, James Van Der Beek, Gwyneth Paltrow, Brendan Fraser, Ray Romano, Drew Barrymore, Cuba Gooding, Jr., and Sarah Michelle Gellar, among others. Last season also saw the return of former SNL cast members Bill Murray, Ben Stiller and David Spade as guest hosts.

The show also continued its unparalleled tradition of featuring both established and cutting-edge musical acts with such performers as Lauryn Hill, Beck, Ricky Martin, Backstreet Boys, Alanis Morissette, Beastie Boys, Jewel, Smashing Pumpkins, Sheryl Crow, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Lucinda Williams, Elliott Smith, Everlast, Barenaked Ladies, Busta Rhymes, The Corrs and Garbage. In addition, in the 1998-99 season, the show featured a spectacular holiday duet with Lucianno Pavarotti and Vanessa Williams.

As it has every year, SNL also surprised viewers with superstar cameos during the 1998-99 season with appearances by Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck, the World Champion New York Yankees, Steve Martin and Dan Aykroyd reprising their classic "Wild & Crazy" Festrunk Brother characters, NBA All-Star Shaquille O'Neal and of course, former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

Saturday Night Live, which premiered October 11, 1975, is broadcast live from NBC's famed Studio 8H in New York City's Rockefeller Center. The program is a presentation of NBC Studios in association with Broadway Video. Lorne Michaels is the executive producer.

So join up! And tell your friends!!! We can really make this some fun!!!
