On October 11, 1975 television sketch comedy experienced a seismic shift as NBC's Saturday Night made its premiere. Over the course of it's first five seasons, characters were created and stars were made, kicking off a cycle that continues over 40 years later. Looking back at that original five years, which of the comedy legends in that cast was the best?

While Mark and Hal are huge SNL nerds, it made sense to get someone with inside information. Enter Dave Thomas, a comedy legend in his own right, who was often there visiting his friends and would later work with Lorne Michaels himself. I'm going to stop writing this now because you just need to listen.

    I think you my have confused E. Buzz Miller with Irwin Mainway.
    Also, Dave Thomas said Aykroyd was the only SNL cast member to get nominated for an Oscar. Leaving out Robert Downey Jr. since he may have meant people from the 1st 5 years, he forgot about Bill Murray.
    Thomas' SCTV book was pretty critical of SNL, so I was surprised, in a good way, how positive he was about the show.
