13 Rejected Saturday Night Live Sketches We'll Never Get To See
"Saturday Night Live" is an American late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol. The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC's Saturday Night. The show's comedy sketches, which often parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each week, the show features a host who delivers the opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast as necessary.
Saturday Night Live is one of the longest-running, most popular sketch comedy shows in TV history. It's also been home to some of the best comedic duos in history. Some of these pairings were more than the sum of their parts and created some classic sketches.
Because the process of pitching sketches works the way it does, there's a ton of interesting SNL material that'll never see the light of day.
