NBC is offering a pretty tempting appetizer to its Chris Pratt-hosted Saturday Night Live premiere this weekend.
The Peacock Net is launching SNL Vintage (10/9c) — focusing on classic installments from the sketch comedy’s four-decade history — with a Season 1 episode hosted by Richard Pryor.
Pryor’s Dec. 13, 1975 taping — which features a “Racist Word Association Interview” opposite Chevy Chase that probably wouldn’t get past network censors in 2014 — also featured musical guest Gil Scott-Heron.
On Oct. 4, SNL Vintage will rebroadcast a Season 25 installment hosted by Christopher Walken with musical guest Christina Aguilera.
Will you tune in to SNL Vintage, the 2014 live broadcast or both? Sound off below!
