For his opening monologue, Randy Newman sings about the floods that damaged New Orleans, then announces that SNL teams are in place to cover the passing of the Bacchus Parade.

But filming in New Orleans was so chaotic and went so far over budget, due to everything from technical issues to most of the cast partying wildly with locals during their time there, that both the network and Lorne Michaels agreed to never try a Mardi Gras special again.
