By the Fall of 1977 New York City had emerged from the Summer of Sam, Studio 54 was opened wide, and Reggie Jackson was about to become Mr. October.
Meanwhile at Studio 8H the die had been cast after a remarkable first two seasons of what was now officially called Saturday Night Live and what a difference two years makes – the show that couldn’t get some affiliates to even carry the show in October of ‘75 was pulling down close to a 40 share in the ratings meaning that in 1977 and 1978 an unprecedented 4 out of 10 TV sets were tuning in to the Not Ready For Prime Time Players every Saturday Night.
From the Check Brothers to Samurai Night Fever to Nick Winters singing Star Wars…even OJ – season 3 would have it all and then some – oh yeah even the return of Chevy Chase…I’m sure that went off without a hitch. So, grab your bell bottoms and final net hairspray..
