Storyline

The show was notable for Elvis Costello and the Attractions beginning their song "Less than Zero" about British wartime fascist leader Oswald Mosley then quickly stopping it, with Elvis announcing "I'm sorry, Ladies and Gentlemen, there's no reason to do this song here". This apparently led to Costello's being barred from SNL for over 10 years. Written by Pete Cook

Trivia

In the sketch before the opening, Laraine Newman says to John Belushi that she bets he won't be as together when he is 80 as is the contestant host grandmother Miskel Spillman. Belushi replies, "Don't worry, I'll be dead by 30." He was only off by three years. See more »
