Subject: Saturday night: a backstage history of Saturday night live (1986) by Doug Hill and Jeff Weingrad I highly recommend this book. It gives a detailed, in-depth analysis of the show from its beginning to 1984 or so. Most of the information comes from interviews and the authors view- ing old episodes on videotape.
Subject: SNL! The world of saturday night live by Hal Schuster I don't not recommend this book on the whole. It has some interesting information and pictures, but it is poorly written and has many errors (including at least three different spellings of Aykroyd). Another glaring error is in the biography section. The page devoted to John Belushi has a picture of his brother, Jim. If you can check this book out from a library, go ahead and get it. But be sure to take all the information in it with a shaker of salt.
Subject: Rolling Stone Visits Saturday Night Live Frank Serpas III writes: I found an SNL-related book in the UT library entitled "Rolling Stone Visits Saturday Night Live." It's made up of articles that originally appeared in the magazine. It has some behind-the-scenes stuff and interviews with the original cast members, Michael O'Donoghue, and Lorne Michaels.
