On Fridays: The SNL Ripoff That Nearly Surpassed the Original

Love an overview that helps me understand the underpinnings of my own past. Dick Ebersol courted me for SNL , but I was too burned out on the consuming, chauvinistic, coked up comedy climate of late nite where the aggression required to get an idea on was life threatening. I was proud of much of the innovation, ashamed of the desperation, and an adoring fan of every member of Friday's iconoclastic cast and staff. Hope Larry lets the DVDs out before all the fans who still write me are dead.
