Trivia

Contrary to popular belief, this is not the first episode not to have a host. The first episode without a host happened on 20 February 1977, when Saturday Night Live (1975) was broadcast from New Orleans. This is actually the second episode without a host, and the first episode of the regular weekly series to be without a host. See more »
