From Wikipedia, about Saturday Night Live:
Saturday Night Live (abbreviated as SNL) is an American late-night live television sketch comedy and variety show created by Lorne Michaels and developed by Dick Ebersol. The show premiered on NBC on October 11, 1975, under the original title NBC’s Saturday Night. The show’s comedy sketches, which parody contemporary culture and politics, are performed by a large and varying cast of repertory and newer cast members. Each episode is hosted by a celebrity guest (who usually delivers an opening monologue and performs in sketches with the cast) and features performances by a musical guest. An episode normally begins with a cold open sketch that ends with someone breaking character and proclaiming, “Live from New York, it’s Saturday Night!,” beginning the show proper.

The special was a ratings success with 23.1 million viewers tuning in, for one of NBC’s most watched non-sports programs in over ten years (excluding Super Bowl lead-outs). […]

Paul McCartney followed-up his impromptu duet with Paul Simon of the Beatles’ “I’ve Just Seen a Face” with a bombastic, bleeding-heart rendition of “Maybe I’m Amazed” during Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special. While the performance itself was appropriately celebratory and thunderous, a hat must be tipped to Keith Richards’ sly introduction: “In the early Sixties a band came out of England and it changed the world But enough about the Rolling Stones: Ladies and gentlemen, Paul McCartney.”
From Consequence Of Sound, about the after party:
Of course the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary after party was insane: Many of the comedians and musicians who participated in last night’s three-and-a-half hour special capped off the evening at the Plaza Hotel. That included Jimmy Fallon, who played bandleader as a cavalcade of A-listers hit the stage to sing along to favorite songs. To start, Taylor Swift and Dan Akroyd joined Paul McCartney to sing The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There” and Swift’s “Shake It Off”. […]
