Not Ready for Prime-Time Players

The Not Ready for Prime-Time Players is the name given to the original cast (1975-1979) of NBC's Saturday Night Live, which included Second City alum Dan Aykroyd, as well as Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Jane Curtin, Laraine Newman, and Garrett Morris. Bill Murray replaced Chase in 1977, after Chase left the show to pursue a movie career (this would become commonplace at SNL).
