  • Charles Grodin had missed all of his rehearsals during the week and, as a result, stumbled and ad-libbed his way through the episode. He was never asked to host again.
  • One of the more notable moments in this episode was the sketch in which Paul Simon and Charles Grodin attempted to sing "The Sounds of Silence" (with Grodin wearing an Art Garfunkel wig). After several aborted starts (with Grodin singing off-key and forgetting the lyrics), Simon walked off the stage. Grodin then proceeded to sing a verse of "Bridge Over Troubled Water", after which Art Garfunkel (himself) walked on the stage and asked Grodin to take off the wig.

  • This episode almost didn't make it to air because of Jean Doumanian's insistence on airing three controversial sketches: one about a heroin addict (played by Charles Rocket) who is taken in by a clean-cut family, one featuring Gail Matthius's Valley Girl Vicki character annoying a receptionist at an abortion clinic, and a filmed piece about NBC talent scouts looking for a virgin female to be an SNL castmember (this caused controversy because of its sequence where the NBC talent scouts go to a convent and find out that one of the nuns there isn't a virgin). The "Virgin Search" short film ended up being cut from this episode, but would air on the episode hosted by David Carradine.

Prince
  • The word "fuck" was said twice in this episode: once by Prince during his song "Partyup" (though nothing was made of it since no one knew if Prince actually said it) and (more infamously) during the goodnights when Charles Rocket (in a wheelchair after getting shot during the last sketch) grumbles, "I'd like to know who the fuck did it" in response to Tilton's query on how Rocket felt after being gunned down.
  • Larry Hagman, also from "Dallas", was originally asked to host. He declined.
118 March 7, 1981 Bill Murray Delbert McClinton
119 April 11, 1981 Jr. Walker & the All-Stars
  • Dick Ebersol begins producing the show. A show scheduled to be hosted by Al Franken and Tom Davis was set to air after this one, but cancelled due to a writers' strike.
  • This episode has no host (though Chevy Chase, Christopher Reeve, and Robin Williams made appearances on this episode, and Chevy Chase returned to Weekend Update). It is the second episode of the show to be hostless.
  • As of this episode both Denny Dillon and Brian Doyle-Murray become the first two people to appear on screen during all three of the Doumanian, Ebersol, and Michaels eras. Bill Murray and Yvonne Hudson, the only others to do it, would complete the feat the following season.
  • This season was considered so disastrous that NBC has barred episodes from being put into syndication[citation needed]. However, there have been rare times when these episodes would show up: Comedy Central (in America) has aired a few episodes from this season up until the mid-1990s, particularly the Bill Murray/Delbert McClinton episode (albeit a scaled-down 60-minute version instead of the full 90-minute version)[citation needed] during a marathon featuring films and SNL episodes starring Eddie Murphy. The Comedy Channel in Canada has aired the entire season uncut, and even left Charles Rocket's "fuck" incident uncensored. The most recent sighting of a Jean Doumanian-era episode in the USA happened in 2005[citation needed] when NBC aired a full 90-minute rerun of the episode hosted by Jamie Lee Curtis.
  • The March 7 episode announced a planned show for March 14, with guest host Robert Guillaume and musical guest Ian Dury. The show ended up getting cancelled due to Jean Doumanian's termination and the show being put on hiatus for retooling.

140 September 25, 1982 Chevy Chase Queen
  • This was the first (and only) time that the host did not appear on stage. Chase was stuck in Burbank, California after missing his flight to New York. The producers improvised by using a satellite link to show Chase on a small TV monitor on stage.
  • Queen gave their first performance on American television.

145 November 13, 1982 Robert Blake Kenny Loggins
  • Blake was banned from hosting after a week of giving writers a hard time, including a fight in which he crumpled up the script of a sketch written by cast member Gary Kroeger and allegedly threw it in Kroeger's face.
146 November 20, 1982 Drew Barrymore Squeeze
  • During this episode, the audience at home was given the chance to vote on whether or not Andy Kaufman, a regular cameo on SNL, should be banned from the show. The vote was conducted by a 1-900 number. At the end of the night, the people had spoken, and Kaufman was banned from ever performing on SNL again.
  • Barrymore is the youngest person ever to host Saturday Night Live, beating Jodie Foster (the former youngest celebrity to host SNL) by seven years.

Steve Martin appeared near the end to chastise Eddie Murphy for being a second choice. This was Steve Martin's only appearance on SNL which was not produced by Lorne Michaels.
149 January 22, 1983 Lily Tomlin Tomlin as Pervis Hawkins
  • Appearing in the musical act also technically makes her the first to host and appear in the musical act twice. Though again the show was listed without a musical guest so she was not given credit.

Episode
Number
Date Host(s) Musical Guest(s) Remarks
196 November 9, 1985 Madonna Simple Minds
  • The episode originally had a cold opening that only aired once where Lorne Michaels and Brandon Tartikoff issue urine tests to check the new castmembers for drug use, ending with Anthony Michael Hall delivering the opening line, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night!". Network executives found this to be "in bad taste" and asked for it to be cut, so all syndicated versions and reruns go straight to the opening sequence.
197 November 16, 1985 Chevy Chase Sheila E
  • This is the first of three episodes to feature a different opening than what was shown in the Madonna/Simple Minds episode. This opening (consisting of paper cut-outs of castmembers and shots of New York City) would only be used for this episode, the Pee-Wee Herman episode, and the John Lithgow episode.
 
198 November 23, 1985 Pee Wee Herman Queen Ida & the Bon Temps Zydeco Band
  • Former SNL castmember Robin Duke appears in the "Pee Wee Herman Thanksgiving Special" sketch as one of the audience members during Diana Ross's (Terry Sweeney) performance. In addition, Phil Hartman (who would later be hired as a season 12 castmember) appeared as a Pilgrim in the same sketch and was credited for writing the "Pee Wee Herman Thanksgiving Special" sketch. Hartman and Herman/Reubens worked together on The Pee-wee Herman Show, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, and the first season of Pee-Wee's Playhouse.
 
199 December 7, 1985 John Lithgow Mr. Mister
  • This is the last episode to use the paper cut-out opening sequence.
 
200 December 14, 1985 Tom Hanks Sade
  • This episode (up until the Anjelica Huston and Billy Martin episode) goes back to using the "limo ride through the city" opening sequence that was used on the Madonna/Simple Minds episode.
 
201 December 21, 1985 Teri Garr Dream Academy
The Cult
 
202 January 18, 1986 Harry Dean Stanton The Replacements
  • The Replacements were banned from playing on the show again as some of the band members were under the influence of alcohol and the lead singer yelled the "f word" during the first song. They played Bastards of Young and Kiss Me On the Bus, both from the Tim album.
203 January 25, 1986 Dudley Moore Al Green
  • The episode has a live show sketch that was only shown once about a beauty pageant for pregnant teenaged girls featuring Danitra Vance's Cabrini Green Jackson character. In reruns, the sketch is replaced with a taped sketch called Big Ball of Sports (from the previous episode hosted by Harry Dean Stanton) and a dress rehearsal sketch where Dudley Moore plays a man who dates a woman (played by Nora Dunn) who reminds him of his ex (played by Joan Cusack).
204 February 8, 1986 Ron Reagan The Nelsons
  • According to the book, "Live From New York: The Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live", there was a sketch cut after dress rehearsal where a pair of homosexual men (Terry Sweeney and Ron Reagan) are hired to redecorate a woman's (Nora Dunn) house.
205 February 15, 1986 Jerry Hall Stevie Ray Vaughan
Jimmie Vaughan
  • Mick Jagger appears in this episode's cold opening where Tommy Flanagan (Jon Lovitz) hits on the host at a bar.
206 February 22, 1986 Jay Leno The Neville Brothers  
207 March 15, 1986 Griffin Dunne Rosanne Cash
  • Damon Wayans, unhappy with the parts he had been getting, decided to play the minor police officer character he'd been assigned in one sketch as gay, though it did not fit the role. For this, Lorne Michaels fired him.
208 March 22, 1986 George Wendt
Francis Ford Coppola
Philip Glass
  • The Philip Glass Ensemble performs "Rubric" from Glassworks and "Lightning" from Songs from Liquid Days. The show's opening theme song was replaced by "Façades," also from Glassworks.
  • Francis Ford Coppola only appears in between sketches in a running gag throughout the episode where he, Lorne Michaels, and Terry Sweeney try to fix up SNL on the air to boost the show's sagging ratings.

210 April 19, 1986 Tony Danza Laurie Anderson

  • The end of the episode has a part where Bob Newhart wakes up next to Suzanne Pleshette (as he did on the last episode of "Newhart") and tells him about his nightmare hosting SNL.

  • In the "Juggernaut Force" sketch, when Chris Farley runs up the stairs of the spaceship, his pants fall down, revealing his bare buttocks.

  • In the live show version of the "Rita Delvecchio" sketch, Cheri Oteri gets her housecoat stuck on a hockey net and mutters, "Look at this shit!" Nothing was made of the on-air cursing, except that Oteri had to put a dollar in a swear jar and all reruns of this episode (NBC, Comedy Central, and E!) muted out the word.
390 October 28, 1995 Gabriel Byrne Alanis Morissette  
391 November 11, 1995 Quentin Tarantino The Smashing Pumpkins

403 April 13, 1996 Steve Forbes Rage Against the Machine
  • Rage Against the Machine wanted to protest to having presidential candidate Steve Forbes as guest host on the program that night. To make that statement, RATM hung two upside-down American flags from their amps. Seconds before they took the stage to perform "Bulls on Parade", SNL and NBC sent stagehands in to pull the flags down. The inverted flags, says guitarist Tom Morello, represented "our contention that American democracy is inverted when what passes for democracy is an electoral choice between two representatives of the privileged class. America's freedom of expression is inverted when you're free to say anything you want to say until it upsets a corporate sponsor. Finally, this was our way of expressing our opinion of the show's host, Steve Forbes. They said the sponsors would be upset, and that because Steve Forbes was on, they had to run a 'tighter' show." SNL also told the band it would mute objectionable lyrics in "Bullet In The Head" (which was supposed to be RATM's second song). SNL even insisted that the song be bleeped in the studio because Forbes had friends and family there.

  • Last episode for stage manager Joe Dicso (who had been in his position since the show's 1975 inception) and cast members David Spade, Nancy Walls and David Koechner.

  • Norm MacDonald slips and says "What the fuck was that?" to himself after choking on his words in the middle of a Weekend Update joke. The audience applauds the error, prompting MacDonald to reply "My farewell performance" and "Maybe I'll see you next week, folks." NBC received only three complaints about the goof and all reruns on NBC and syndication mute out the obscenity.
424 April 19, 1997 Pamela Anderson Rollins Band
  • Anderson's then-husband, rocker Tommy Lee, makes an appearance as himself in two sketches.
425 May 10, 1997 John Goodman Jewel

Episode
Number
Date Host(s) Musical Guest(s) Remarks
506 September 29, 2001 Reese Witherspoon Alicia Keys
  • The episode premiered less than 3 weeks following the terrorist attacks of September 11. New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, along with members of the New York Fire Department appear in the cold opening to encourage New York and Saturday Night Live to carry on in the face of adversity. When asked by Lorne Michaels "can we be funny?", Giuliani replied "why start now?" In addition to appearances by Giuliani and the NYFD, Paul Simon played The Boxer during the cold opening.
  • This marks the first time that Michaels (or any other executive producer) approved the use of the word fuck on air. Instead of "I'm freezing my balls off," the original punchline to Reese's joke in the monologue was "I'm fucking freezing!" Michaels wanted her to swear (promising he'd pay the fine) since he wanted to show that New York was back up and running. She decided not to at the last minute since she has so many young fans.
  • On the original airing of this episode and the next, Chris Parnell's voice-over remained for the Weekend Update opening sequence (even though he had been fired from the show). It was subsequently re-recorded by Amy Poehler.
507 October 6, 2001 Seann William Scott Sum 41
  • Former castmember Ben Stiller was asked to host the episode, but backed out due to the 9/11 attacks stating "It's impossible to be funny at this time.". SNL crew member Rosie Shuster said in the "Live from New York" book that "Ben is from New York, he should be fucking showing up with bells on to help the city through this". She was also displeased that while he disagreed to promote his film Zoolander by hosting SNL, he was appearing on Today, The View, and various other programs.
  • Seann William Scott was originally booked to host the following episode, but he was bumped up when Ben Stiller canceled.
508 October 13, 2001 Drew Barrymore Macy Gray
  • Drew Barrymore nearly backed out of hosting, citing fear of flying after the 9/11 attacks. After agreeing to host, rehearsals for this week's episode were interrupted when an NBC employee tested positive for anthrax in the same building where SNL is broadcast. The show went on that Saturday as scheduled.
509 November 3, 2001 John Goodman Ja Rule
  • Former castmember and special guest Dan Aykroyd revises his recurring character, Leonard Pinth-Garnell, for the sketch "Bad Conceptual Theater".
  • Dan Aykroyd was brought in to pad sketches during rehearsals when John Goodman was too sick to come in.
510 November 10, 2001 Gwyneth Paltrow Ryan Adams
  • The original version of this episode has a TV Funhouse cartoon about Michael Jackson proving to his weird entourage that he doesn't lust after boys anymore. On the NBC rerun, this was replaced with another TV Funhouse cartoon, a "Fun With Real Audio" about Pat Robertson promoting stem cells which turns into a cartoon about Britney Spears that played on the West Coast airing of this episode (the syndicated reruns don't air either cartoon).
511 November 17, 2001 Billy Bob Thornton Creed
  • Future host Ashton Kutcher makes a cameo appearance during the monologue.

  • Chris Parnell makes a vocal cameo appearance as Tom Brokaw during the "Narrator Who Ruined Christmas" cartoon. Robert Smigel did not agree with Parnell's firing and pushed for him to reprise his impression. Smigel notes on the "Best of TV Funhouse" DVD commentary that Parnell had nothing but good things to say about the show that had fired him when he came in to record his lines. Parnell will subsequently rejoin the cast a few episodes later.
515 January 12, 2002 Josh Hartnett Pink
  • Cameron Diaz and Outkast were scheduled to be host and musical guest respectively in this episode. Both backed out at the last minute, but would appear in episodes later in the season.
  • Will Ferrell does not appear in this episode since he was off filming the movie "Old School." He was removed from the opening credit sequence, which caused many fans to fear that he had permanently left the show.
516 January 19, 2002 Jack Black The Strokes
  • Will Ferrell was prominently featured in the promos for this episode to assure viewers that he had not left the show (after being absent for the previous episode).

518 March 2, 2002 Jonny Moseley Outkast
  • Chris Parnell rejoins the cast after being fired at the end of last season for budgetary reasons.

Parnell appeared in a number of sketches in this episode an attempt to reintegrate him back into the cast.
  • Darrell Hammond does not appear in this episode since he was in rehab for his alcohol addiction. Will Ferrell, who was originally not supposed to appear in this episode, was flown in from the set of "Old School" at the last minute to make up for Hammond's absence.

520 March 16, 2002 Ian McKellen Kylie Minogue
  • According to the book, "Live From New York: The Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live", the kiss between Maggie Smith (Ian McKellen) and Jimmy Fallon on Weekend Update was real and planned for the show, but McKellen slipping his tongue in Fallon's mouth, Jimmy's disgusted reaction, and Jimmy's lines "Maggie Smith should shave" and "Does this mean I'm knighted? Or did I just get queened" were not planned/scripted.
  • This episode won an Emmy for writing, the show's first since 1989 (for the Alec Baldwin/B-52's episode)

Episode
Number
Date Host(s) Musical Guest(s) Remarks
546 October 4, 2003 Jack Black John Mayer
  • The last sketch about telemarketers singing about their glory days ending is cut off abruptly due to the show running too long.
  • Jack Black mispronounces John Mayer's last name as "Meyer" when he introduces him as musical guest. This is fixed in all reruns.
  • Will Ferrell's cameo appearance in the monologue received so much applause that it extended the length of the monologue by an additional 45 seconds.
547 October 11, 2003 Justin Timberlake
  • Justin performed three songs and impersonated four celebrities: Michael Bolton, Robin Gibb, Ashton Kutcher and Jessica Simpson.
  • Reruns of this episode on NBC and E! redub Maya Rudolph's singing the Christina Aguilera song "Beautiful" with unintelligible vocalizing during the "Punk'd: Barely Legal" fake commercial.
  • The NBC rerun of this episode cuts Justin Timberlake's second performance and replaces it with the TV Funhouse from the Ben Affleck/N.E.R.D. episode and the "Fear Factor Kids" fake commercial from the Donald Trump/Toots and the Maytals episode.
  • Carl Weathers (who hosted SNL in its 13th [1987-1988] season) cameos in a short sketch announcing his candidacy as governor of any state, parodying his Predator co-stars Jesse Ventura and Arnold Schwarzenegger's successful campaign for governor, as well as the numerous celebrities running for governor in the 2003 California recall election
548 October 18, 2003 Halle Berry Britney Spears
549 November 1, 2003 Kelly Ripa Outkast

  • Former castmember Mike Myers appears in the monologue to plug the film "The Cat In The Hat".
552 December 6, 2003 Al Sharpton Pink
  • Many NBC affiliates (particularly in Iowa) did not air this episode due to fear of breaking equal time laws (Al Sharpton was a presidential candidate at the time), and aired either three half-hour infomercials or the SNL special "The Best of Steve Martin" in its place. It finally aired on all NBC affiliates on July 31, 2004. This gave fodder for a Weekend Update segment entitled "Tina and Jimmy Making Fun of Cities That Aren't Showing SNL Tonight".
  • Paris Hilton (who would later host a season 30 episode) appears on Weekend Update.
  • Former castmember Tracy Morgan appears in the monologue as the young Al Sharpton, a sketch about the 3 Wise Men getting pulled over and in a sketch about racial stereotypes in a 1930s film.

556 February 7, 2004 Megan Mullally Clay Aiken

  • Among the items cut from dress rehearsal included a sketch about the art of bartending with Drew Barrymore playing the bartender, a sketch in which all the girls dress up as flowers and sing, and a commercial about smoked sausages cooked by Firestarter (the character from Drew's early film career) This commercial was cut after dress but would later show up on air in 2007 during Drew Barrymore's next hosting gig.

  • In an interview with Amy Poehler, Amy stated that Janet Jackson was one of the nicest hosts she worked with, and during the course of the week, Janet bought lunch for the whole cast and crew.
  • The writers axed a sketch where Janet's character would make fun of Michael Jackson when they 'sensed' that she was uncomfortable doing it.

564 May 8, 2004 Snoop Dogg Avril Lavigne
  • Snoop Dogg was a replacement for Jake Gyllenhaal, who backed out at the last minute. Gyllenhaal eventually hosted for the first time in season 32.
565 May 15, 2004 Mary-Kate Olsen
Ashley Olsen

  • The Olsen Twins missed their own prom so they could host SNL.

Number
Date Host(s) Musical Guest(s) Remarks
566 October 2, 2004 Ben Affleck Nelly
  • Alec Baldwin cameos during the monologue. The monologue in the dress rehearsal originally had Darrell Hammond as Alec Baldwin, but the real Alec Baldwin was used instead.

Simpson looked momentarily confused as the band plowed ahead with the song and the vocal was quickly silenced. A flustered Simpson made some exaggerated hopping dance moves, then walked off the stage. NBC quickly cut to a commercial. Following her performance and negative publicity, Simpson claims it was simply a back-up track due to an attack of her acid reflux.
569 October 30, 2004 Kate Winslet Eminem

In a 2006 Howard Stern interview, Tina Fey was asked about Hilton, with Fey explaining that Paris wanted to do a sketch playing Jessica Simpson because she "hated her", and "she was fat." Fey also noted there was originally a sketch entitled "Paris Hilton's House of Crabs", which followed the theme of such sketches as "Donald Trump's House of Wings" from the previous season and "Derek Jeter's Taco Hole" from season 27. However, Hilton was against the idea of making fun of herself and allegedly locked herself in her dressing room as a result.
