The Saturday Night Live reality show that (thankfully) wasn't

Bradford Evans at Splitsider has delved into the aborted attempt at an American Idol-style competition show in which the ultimate prize was becoming an actual featured player on Saturday Night Live. It was 2005, and it almost happened, but it didn't because for just one important moment, an angel appeared on Lorne Michaels' shoulder and said, "Don't do this." And Lorne listened. That angel got its wings that day, and they were the fanciest, fastest, and strongest wings that ever carried a celestial being. (via Splitsider)
