Welcome to Saturday Night Live: The Exhibition, which is very much ready for prime time.
When the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum was established in 1983, more than a few pundits suggested that such a memorial augured the death of the genre. Although it was only a few years after the record business had collapsed in 1979, in what many referred to as the Great Disco Disaster, it turned out that rock and roll had at least another three decades left in it (more or less). That looks also to be the case for NBC’s long-lived Saturday Night Live franchise, which wrapped its 40th season in 2015, now that it has its own archival repository. And this one’s not in Cleveland.
