Then & Now-- Part 2: Saturday Night Live

Over the past four decades "Saturday Night Live" has gone from must-watch to that still on?

Back then, the original Not Ready For Prime Time Players in 1975 included Loraine Newman, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Garrett Morris and Chevy Chase.

What they earned:

FIRST SEASON:  $750 an episode (today $3,396)
SECOND SEASON:  $2,000 a show ($8,563 today)
FOURTH SEASON:  $4,000 a show  ($14,945 today)


Estimates say that cast members make up to $24,000 a show based on seniority.

$1,400--  How much Alec Baldwin is paid every time he appears on SNL impersonating President Donald Trump.
