News from NBC Upfronts

 ”Saturday Night Live” will go primetime in a big way in the fall.
The show is marking its 35th anniversary this year, and NBC will celebrate with a three-hour prime-time special during the fall. No date is set; the 35th anniversary of “SNL’s” very first show is Oct. 11, which is a Monday.
NBC aired an “SNL” 25th anniversary special in 1999 that featured a wealth of clips, appearances by former cast members and hosts and a star-studded audience.

Well, this is very exciting indeed. Anything that brings back favourite hosts (Justin Timberlake, Jon Hamm anyone?) and old cast members is a win in my book.
