Live From New York, A Fascinating Behind-The-Scenes Look At SNL

Good live television looks easy, but that's only because there are hundreds of people working hard behind the scenes to pull it off. Case in point: NBC's venerable sketch comedy institution, "Saturday Night Live". 

The clip above comes from SNL's Christmas episode featuring Casey Affleck and musical guest Chance The Rapper. Studio 8H is small enough that the set for the cold open - the sketch that opens the show, pre-credits - is right where the guest has to give their monologue. Watch as the SNL crew tears it all down in one minute and forty seconds.

Note: This video is currently only available in the US.


Our galaxy will seem a lot smaller in the near future as space tourism emerges as a new sector in the travel industry. But as companies begin booking passengers for extra-terrestrial flights, they will also have to sort out what you can and can't legally do in outer space - whether that involves mining gold from an asteroid or smoking a joint on the moon. That's where experts like Frans von der Dunk come in.
