Live from New York: An Uncensored History of SNL by Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller

This book is a riveting collection of interviews of Saturday Night Live cast members, writers, producers (including Lorne Michaels himself!) through the years of the show. It almost feels like you are eavesdropping on intimate conversations that you should not hear, which makes the book that much more fun. There are lots of interesting tidbits in here if you are a fan of the show. It is a long book, but the interview format makes it fly by.
