Trivia

Former cast member Darrell Hammond makes his debut as the show's new announcer, following the death of Don Pardo. Hammond had previously stepped in for Pardo when the latter was unavailable for health reasons, impersonating his voice, but was asked to do "his own separate thing" when he took over permanently.

Goofs

During his opening monologue, Chris Pratt wrongly identified the beginning of SNL's 40th season as SNL's 40th anniversary. Actually, the beginning of the 41st season would be the 40th anniversary, just as the beginning of the 2nd season was the first anniversary. The exact date of the 40th anniversary of the premier of Saturday Night Live is October 11, 2015. See more »
