Saturday Night Live premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975. Also known as SNL, the show is an American late-night live television variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol. The show's comedy sketches, which often parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest, who usually delivers the opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast as with featured performances by a musical guest. An episode normally begins with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!", properly beginning the show. SNL has aired 871 episodes since its debut, and concluded its forty-fourth season on May 18, 2019, making it one of the longest-running network television programs in the United States.

The Underground Railroad – established during the early to mid-1800s. The Underground Railroad was a network of secret routes and safe houses in the United States used by African-American slaves to escape into free states and Canada with the aid of abolitionists and allies who were sympathetic to their cause. The term is also applied to the abolitionists, both black and white, free and enslaved, who aided the fugitives. Various routes led to Mexico or overseas. However, the network now generally known as the Underground Railroad ran north to the free states and Canada, and reached its height between 1850 and 1860. One estimate suggests that by 1850, 100,000 slaves had escaped via the "Railroad".
