In October 1980, Lorne Michaels
and most of the original cast members, who had since left the show, reunited to put together a special that would parody the upcoming Presidential election between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. The special was to air live on November 1, 1980. A few days before the special was to air, Carter and Reagan decided to do another televised debate on November 1. Live coverage of the debate forced NBC to reschedule. NBC offered Michaels the chance to do the special the following week. He refused because it would have been after the election, and the material would no longer be topical. See more
