What Is SNL?
Saturday Night Live (SNL) is a late-night American television sketch comedy and variety show. It is created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol. It is known for often pushing boundaries with its sketches and parodies.
Celebrities including known actors, artist, and comedians come together to act out skits on current affairs. At times the topic can be ridiculous and it often garners negative feedback. But the show has been successfully running for 47 seasons now.
Actor Alec Baldwin holds the record for appearing the most times on the show. Many of the cast members from SNL went on to become stars in the industry, including names like Pete Davidson, Chris Farley, Will Ferrell, etc.
Its 2020-2021 season turned out to be the most-watched entertainment program for people aged 18 to 49 years. This also happens to be the demographic that is most preferred by advertisers.
Although the salary varies, a regular cast member makes around $15,000 per episode. If they appear in all 21 episodes in a season, they would make around $315,000 from the show in a year. By this calculation, former host of SNL Pete Davidson made around $2.5 million after eight seasons on the show.
