1,869 SATURDAYS LATER... THE SCENE RAISES ITS GLASS TO 36 YEARS OF A COMEDIC INSTITUTION BY KRISTEN HOUSE | AR T S & REVIEW EDITOR ZAK JASON | ASSOC. ARTS & REVIEW EDITOR A L L I S O N T H E R R I E N | A S S T. A R T S & R E V I E W E D I T O R

n a recent Rolling Stone interview, Lorne Michaels described one of his first meetings with Jim Beluschi, an attempt to hire him for the premiere season of Saturday Night Live in 1974. The conversation went as follows: Beluschi: “My TV is covered in spit.” Michaels: “Why?” “Because I hate it.” “Then why did you come here?” “Because I heard you are going to do something different. “The conversation was loosely veiled in idealism and dirty jokes, and the essence that is Saturday Night Live was captured. Michaels’ experiment has definitely proven to be “different,” in that it is the most relevant comedy show on television, and has been for 36 years. The beauty of the show is that you can’t put any one person on a pedestal — it’s already occupied by comedic innovation. In the past half decade, however, many have argued that the golden age of SNL has past. The Scene thinks otherwise. Yes, you have faltered. But you’re an institution, and institutions have the dignity and fortitude to rebound. So now, on your 36th anniversary, we present to you a reminder of where you were, where you now stand, and the glory you can reclaim. SEE SNL, B5
