Saturday Night Live
From Homestar Runner Wiki
Saturday Night Live is a late-night sketch comedy and variety show that first started in 1975 for NBC. The sketches often parody current culture (e.g. the latest presidential elections, TV shows). It also features unique shorts and characters on the show like "Coneheads". During the course of the show, it featured a lot of comedians like Chevy Chase, Eddie Murphy, and Adam Sandler, which helped build their careers later in life. There were a lot of movies related to the show like "The Blues Brothers", "Wayne's World", and "Wayne's World 2". Today, the show is still going on and it's one of the longest comedy night shows.
