Can you name the TV star hosting Saturday Night Live in the 1970s?

See if you recognize these guest hosts from the first five seasons.

 

The "Not Ready for Primetime Players" made their debut in 1975. 


Of course, they had some comedic help from guest hosts with plenty of primetime experience. We've gathered some classic TV icons from the first five seasons of SNL, up through the fifth season (1979–80). Okay, so yeah, a few of them were technically hosting in early 1980. But they are certainly all Seventies stars. See if you can identify them all.

Good luck!

A rare case of getting them all right. And Bea Arthur is best known for Maude. Goldern Girls is secondary.

15/15 mission complete. The one with Kate Jackson was a little tough because it looked like Farrah as well in the picture.
