‘SNL’ Plans Three-Hour 40th Anniversary Special for Early 2015

SNL 40th Anniversary Special 2015
NBC

SNL‘ will take a bit of a break this weekend following ‘Neighbors‘ star Seth Rogen‘s third time hosting, returning on May 3 with ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2”s Andrew Garfield, but consider the long-running NBC sketch comedy to have much larger plans in mind for the future: an epic, star-studded, three-hour broadcast in February 2015 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of ‘Saturday Night Live’!

This early on, of course, we only know that the three-hour special will air on Sunday (really?), February 15 of next year from 8:00 – 1100 p.m. Still, consider the sheer possibility for potential guests, including the man cast, musical acts, past hosts, or any number of such distinguished alumni since the 1975 beginning as Will Ferrell, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Billy Crystal, Dan Ackroyd, Steve Martin, Dana Carvey, Bill Hader, Fred Armisen, Mike Myers, Kristen Wiig, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, or, of course, late-night hosts Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers.

Says NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt of the 40th anniversary special:

‘Saturday Night Live’ is an institution unlike anything else in television history. The many brilliant “Not Ready for Primetime Players” over the years is a who’s who of film and television comedy for the last two generations.

Only so much to go on for the moment, but exciting nonetheless. What say you? Who would you like to see ‘SNL’ celebrate its 40th anniversary with next February?
