Saturday Night Live - Season 42

Before you tune into Saturday Night Live this weekend, watch some, well, Saturday Night Live. NBC announced on Wednesday that it’s launching SNL Vintage, in which the network will re-air classic episodes of the show at 10 p.m. on Saturdays in honor of its 40th anniversary. The week’s selection is the first season’s Richard Pryor-hosted episode with Gil Scott-Heron as musical guest—a must-watch as it features the “Word Association” sketch.

On Oct. 4, NBC will jump ahead, airing the 2000 episode from the 25th season featuring host Christopher Walken and musical guest Christina Aguilera. Yes, the episode that brought the concept of “more cowbell” into the world.

A 40th anniversary special is set for Feb. 15, 2015.
