I'm hoping Lorne lets Seagal back on set and does a parody of him being an asshole to everyone.

Can anyone legitimately tell me why this is happening 8 months before the actual 40th anniversary of the show? Who celebrates an anniversary 8 months before it actually happens? We're actually closer to the 39th anniversary of the show than the 40th.

FWIW I thought the 25th special was really good as I remember.

Check your DVRs. This was originally scheduled as a 3 hour time slot. It was just changed to 3.5 hours.

This should be better than the last 2 seasons combined I hope.

Hader was hilarious on Letterman talking about a sketch that bombed with him, Forte, and Josh Grodin did on SNL

Can you say why this matters to no one but you?

It's the 40th year right? What rule says it has to be exactly on the date of the 40th anniversary.

Anyway I've enjoyed the show for the entire run.
The marathon on VH1 has been great.
Really liked watching eps I havent seen in decades like the early 80's shows and the Crystal/Short season.

I imagine that getting all these people together at the same time was a challenge. Maybe this time of the year was logistically easier for some reason.

I'm sure it'll be new stuff. Probably recurring characters mostly. Don't remember much from the 25th but Chevy, Dennis Miller and Kevin Nealon did WU together which was pretty cool. I think Green Day reprised Elvis Costello's Radio Radio mid-song (that might have been another special). There were tributes to Belushi from Aykroid, Gilda from Bill Murray, Chris Farley from David Spade and Phil Hartman for a teary Jan Hooks . Other than that, I don't think there were that many clips.

No kidding! I'm expecting this to be more like "Hey, remember that time we did 'More Cowbell?'... That was awesome!" (in The Chris Farley Show voice)

Incredibly siked for this. Hope we see a Solomon and Pudge sketch. Piscopo and Murphy were always terrific together.

Evan back then some sketches bombed or went over the heads of the audience members.

I wonder when the hosts first became involved with the sketches?

Carlin did several stand up gigs but never did any sketches.

Scary when you are about the same age as SNL though I did not watch it in the 70's and 80's since I was too young to stay up late.

I was born in 1974 and didn't start watching until middle school (around 1988).

I guess I started in the early 80's. I remember Eddie, Piscopo, Kazurinski, etc. Pretty much been watching ever since, thru the good and bad.
