Tonight, New York’s hottest club is SNL 40. Held in an art-deco monument to consumer electronics, this decades-in-the-making, three-and-a-half-hour brainchild of septuagenarian Paul Simon fan Lorne Michaels has everything: A red-carpet pre-show, the unexpected return of Eddie Murphy, and an A.V. Club livechat. What’s an A.V. Club livechat? It’s that thing where a bunch of Internet writers and their readers get online on a Sunday night and pretend like they’re watching TV together in the same room. It starts tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central, and if you’re a human Twitterer (it’s that thing where you talk to strangers without ever breaking eye contact between yourself and your phone), the password is #avctv.
