From what I remember, there were two episodes of TWILIGHT THEATER, and NBC broadcast them on the Saturday NIGHT LIVE time slot in the place of reruns of the show. I remember the Steve Martin drunk steamroller driving segment, a parody of 1930's prison films(starring Bill Murray), a segment on "the first soap opera set in high school"(my words) and Michael York asking for contributions to keep TWILIGHT THEATER on the air(to which the subscribers get a button that says TWIT on it). At times, I look back at TWILIGHT THEATER when I look at the sad shape of late night TV today. Let me tell you, we didn't know how good we had it back then.
