As the show is famously set in New York, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that New York Magazine has long covered Saturday Night Live. Earlier in the week, we shared the magazine’s first-ever review of the show, from 1975. Now, with the show celebrating its 40th anniversary this Sunday, we wanted to share some of our SNL profiles, interviews, and oral histories from throughout its run. Here are 16 articles, covering everyone from Chevy Chase to Jay Pharoah.
