Saturday Night Live recently completed its landmark 40th season, and has become the longest-running live comedy and variety program on television.

Each season has its own page in The Archives. It lists the dates and guests of each episode, cast members and featured players - including their first and final episodes - and the individuals who delivered the famed "Live from New York" phrase in the cold opening of each episode.
