Schema obtained programatically. Database updated quarterly.

Preview scaled down versions of high definition 1080i video & 5.1 audio from the most current seasons. Based on the premise that "We watch SNL so you don't have to". It has been stated that 90% of the show is not worth watching, but consider that it has been on for more than 45 years. That is more than 100 hours of good entertainment over the lifespan of the show assuming each show contains about 7 minutes worth of legitimate material.
