List of Saturday Night Live hosts and musical guestsList of Saturday Night Live episodes — Since every other TV series has an episode list in the format "List of [TV series] episodes," this page should be moved for consistency. This page also includes 'specials,' so it is clearly an LOE and not just a list of hosts and musical guests. —Wikipedical (talk) 20:20, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Presidential Bash 2000[edit]

I know there was one in 2000, similar to what their doing this year. Does anyone know what date and more info about it. I remember both Gore and Bush appeared in pre-recorded segments. --Levineps (talk) 21:11, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

  • This is not a page for discussing the show itself, just discussing the article. StewdioMACK (talk) 14:37, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

Host(s) column[edit]

Why does every host have quotation marks around his or her name? Or in the case of multiple hosts, why are there quotation marks around both of their names? Their names are not episode titles. AstérixSméagol (talk) 13:44, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

  • Good question. Both quotation marks and bold are redundant. Drmies (talk) 04:16, 18 April 2010 (UTC)


There was also a special called Saturday Night Live: Just Commercials. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:02, 27 March 2011 (UTC)

Season 38 premiere?[edit]

On the season 38 SNL page, the date is listed as September 15th 2012, but on this page the airdate for the first episode is listed as the 29th. Can we get some confirmation either way? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:02, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

'Listings' sections on Seasons pages[edit]

I have begun removing the "Listings" sections from Seasons pages. The articles already contain data about episodes, and information on repeat airings have been consistently removed from Wikipedia, failing WP:NOTDIR. See Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Wizard Of Oz - Television Airdates, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Airdates of Lost, Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Airdates of House (TV series), etc. -- Wikipedical (talk) 00:37, 28 October 2012 (UTC)


Is there a reason all the hosts are in quotes? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:11, 1 December 2012 (UTC)

Host formatting[edit]

Because they are a person's name, should each host's name be in quotes? I know that they are in the |Title field, which automatically puts the quotes in, but I feel that since they are only referencing the name of a person, and not a title of an episode, say like "Treehouse of Horror" on The Simpsons, there should not be any quotes. In order to do so, all of the hosts would have to be added to the |RTitle field, which will keep them in the same table spot, but lose the quotes. -Favre1fan93 (talk) 22:55, 1 February 2013 (UTC)

  • Yes, that's a very good idea. I've begun making that change on the season pages. Thanks for the suggestion. -- Wikipedical (talk) 04:52, 2 February 2013 (UTC)

Pick a color for a new season[edit]

I want to add season 42. Is there a standard for the season colors or is it random? Vacuousness (talk) 14:50, 12 September 2016 (UTC)

Do not add season 42, per WP:TV. LLArrow (talk) 22:02, 12 September 2016 (UTC)
