    • As of this writing, Brandon Tartikoff is the only NBC network executive to host SNL.

    • This is John Mellencamp's first appearance on the show with his real surname.

    • Originally, Bruce Springsteen was booked as musical guest.

    • Tartikoff wore a wig in this episode as he was still undergoing cancer treatment at the time, according to the SNL "biography" Live From New York.

    • The 30 June 1984 repeat of this show removes "Feln's Discount Warehouse" and "Ethel's Diner", and adds "Crazy Edelman" from Devito/Perlman, "Eddie in NJ" from Candy, and "Talkin' Dopeball" from Garr.
