Saturday Night Live premiered this week in 1975. In honor of their anniversary, LAist is going to show a clip from the show each night this week at midnight and also list what happens each day during the week that leads to the show being on the air Saturday night. Have favorite clips of your own? Submit them here. Today's clip features a best-of medley from Mike Meyers.

Wednesday: *All scripts get a read-through.

* After the read-through, the head writer(s) and the producers meet with the host to decide which sketches to work on for the rest of the week, with Lorne Michaels and the host having the final say.


A fellow LAister sent this clip along from last week's show. SNL still has it. Maybe not "it" all the time. But some of the time.
