Actor Alec Baldwin holds the record for hosting the highest number of SNL episodes. In 49 seasons of the show, Baldwin has hosted it seventeen times since 1990. However, with sixteen shows as host, Steve Martin lacks only one show to level the record. 

SNL was started on October 11, 1975, by George Carlin under the original title NBC’s Saturday Night. The show is a complete package of different kinds of comedy.
