Awesome Behind the Scenes Photos From the First Seasons of "Saturday Night Live"

On October 11, 1975, NBC premiered a show called NBC’s Saturday Night. It featured a cast including Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris, Laraine Newman, George Coe and Michael O’Donoghue and was produced by Lorne Michaels.

In 1976, NBC purchased the name Saturday Night Live and in 1997 changed the name of the show. It quickly became a staple of late night television and is obviously still running. The show has had over 130 different players. However, the ’70s cast (which eventually included Bill Murray) is thought by many to be the best.
