Publisher's Summary

When first published to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, Live from New York was immediately proclaimed the best book ever produced on the landmark and legendary late-night show. In their own words, unfiltered and uncensored, a dazzling galaxy of trail-blazing talents recalled three turbulent decades of on-camera antics and off-camera escapades. Now a fourth decade has passed - and best-selling authors James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales have returned to Studio 8H. They raucously and revealingly take the SNL story up to the present, adding a constellation of iconic new stars, surprises, and controversies.

    "MORE THAN YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW"

    I love oral histories. I love Saturday Night Live. And, I loved about the first half of the book. But then, it bogged down in the less interesting latter day cast -- and a staggering amount of repetition. Yes, we understand that it's the greatest experience in the world, and leaving is really tough...do we have to hear it again and again and again? A bit of judicious editing would have made this a far better book.

    "Live From Who Cares"

    This lengthy history of SNL is a good outline that devolves into a bad sketch
