Are you a fan of the TV show Saturday Night Live? The show first premiered back in 1975, and has been on the airwaves ever since. One of SNL's pioneers in comedy, the shows first head writer, was born in Sauquoit New York. Meet Michael O'Donoghue.
By now you've probably seen or heard about Saturday Night Live's ISIS skit with Dakota Johnson. If not, it's a spoof on the Toyota Super Bowl dad ad where a father watches his daughter move away from home after graduation. In the SNL skit, Johnson leaves home to join ISIS.
Saturday Night Live celebrated 40 years on NBC on Sunday night. One of the guests on the show was Taylor Swift. At the after party she teamed up with Paul McCartney on the bass, and Jimmy Fallon on stage to sing "Shake It Off".

With so much going on, if you missed something, we can't say we blame you. We've covered the big items, like Celebrity Jeopardy, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake, the new Digital Short, Wayne's World and the huge monologue, but we're here to celebrate some of the smaller moments.
Sarah Silverman put on her Joan Rivers hat to roast other dead celebrities in Heaven on Saturday Night Live. Silverman started by poking fun at herself, and then moved on to Richard Pryor, Steve Jobs, Ava Gardner, Freddie Mercury, Benjamin Franklin, and Lucy Ball. Funny or too soon?
