Since 1975, Saturday Night Live has dominated the weekend comedy television slot. In addition to television programming, Saturday Night Live has been active in a large number of SNL skit-related movies. Saturday Night Live-based movies include Wayne’s World, MacGruber, The Blues Brothers, and SuperStar. A large number of comedians from Saturday Night Live have gone on to have huge careers in acting such as Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and Kevin Nealon. Because the show is filmed live, Saturday Night Live has been a part of scandals brought on by performers using the show as a platform for political opinions. Saturday Night Live is often in headlines for having special previously unannounced guests.
