Live From New York

The Complete,Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live as Told by its Stars, Writers, and Guests

By James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales

This the story of how Lorne Michaels built an empire. He took a time slot Johnny Carson did not want and eventually controlled the The Tonight Show, The Late Show and Saturday Night Live. Reading the book is a lot like watching a documentary with a lot of talking heads. It is comprehensive over forty years. What appears to be improvisation is in fact a carefully scripted formula fromĀ a well oiled machine.
