Saturday Night Live host Robert De Niro gives a Homeland Security Briefing, originally aired on December 7, 2002. (SLYT)

Saturday Night Live (abbreviated as SNL) is an American late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol. The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC's Saturday Night. The show's comedy sketches, which 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 an opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast, and features 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!", beginning the show proper.

I believe the security alert level at that time was somewhere between bone and putty.

Let me get this straight... this show is on Saturday Night? And it's done live?

It's stupid and unfunny, but that's par for the course for SNL. What's surprising about this one is that it's outright racist.
