Here are some tasks awaiting attention:

Deleted material[edit]

The following info about Studio 8H ha snothing to do with SNL. I've move dit here so that it could be incorporated into other, more relevant articles (I'm surprised there isn't a Studio 8H article, actually).

The first season finale of The Apprentice and the 5th anniversary special of Late Night with Conan O'Brien have used the studio for one night. Likewise, Later with Bob Costas, Love, Sidney, the 50th anniversary of television episode of Today in 1990, "House Party with Steve Doocy" and the 5th anniversary special of Late Night with David Letterman were broadcast from Studio 8H. Last Call with Carson Daly used the studio until 2005, when the show moved to Studio 9 at the NBC Studios in Burbank, California.

In May of 2002, NBC celebrated its 75th anniversary and used Studio 8H to shoot the live broadcast of the event. Lorne Michaels executive produced the event.

The studio was again used for the live parts of the season finale of "Celebrity Apprentice" on March 27, 2008.

Controversy/Criticism Section[edit]

Personally, I think having this section, with is very subjective, in the main article is a problem. Better to move it to a new page, where it can be elaborated on (like adding the "f-bomb" incident from a couple episodes back. The main reason I bring this up is that having the information in this main article makes people focus more on Rage in the Machine, rather than SNL. Mainly.generic (talk)

Praise and Criticism[edit]

Hey, I just edited one of the sections to be now Praise and Criticism. If anybody is interested, I need some help finding some articles on the show's reception. I was also thinking of making a cultural impact section. Tell me what you think. Water78 (talk) 4 May 2011 (UTC)
