    Notes (4)

    • O.J. Simpson is the second football player to host SNL and the first black athlete to host.

    • O.J. Simpson was the only former host not to be invited to the 25th anniversary special in 1999, mostly due to his highly publicized murder trial.

    • The opening montage is slightly tweaked, replacing most of the cast (except for Aykroyd and Radner) standing in front of their respective names on the Spectacolor screen in Times Square with shots of them walking out of the subway.

    • This is the only time Roseanne Roseannadanna's letter does not come from Richard Feder. Instead of Feder, the letter is "signed" Bob Van Ry, after a longtime SNL stage manager.
