NBC to reprise first Saturday Night Live, with host George Carlin

Here's one worth recording with whatever device you have.

The first-ever Saturday Night Live, hosted by the late George Carlin, will be repeated on Saturday, June 28th, at 10:30 p.m. (central) on NBC.

Originally telecast on Oct. 11, 1975, the show also featured The Muppets, musical guests Janis Ian and Billy Preston, and Andy Kaufman. The "Not Ready For Prime -Time Players" also were in full force. Namely Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Jane Curtin, Garrett Morris and Larraine Newman.

"You never forget the people who were there at the beginning," SNL creator Lorne Michaels says in an NBC release. "George Carlin helped give Saturday Night Live its start . . . He was gracious, fearless, and most important of all, funny."
