  • Notes (3)

    • Nasim Pedrad did not appear in any live sketches.

    • First episode for Beck Bennett, John Milhiser, Kyle Mooney, Michael Patrick O'Brien (previously a writer), Noel Wells, and Brooks Wheelan. This is the largest addition of new cast members to SNL since the 1995 overhaul.

      Also, Aidy Bryant, Kate McKinnon, and Cecily Strong are promoted to repertory players.

    • First episode of Weekend Update with Seth Meyers and Cecily Strong. Strong is only the fifth woman in SNL's history to be a full-time anchor on Update.

    Trivia (1)

    • The stock footage for the airport sketch which is supposed to be playing in Chicago O'Hare airport is actually an outside shot of Zurich International Airport in Switzerland. Along with the parts of Terminal A and control tower the shot shows two medium-lange planes from Swiss and one medium-range plane from Lufthansa (Terminal A handles domestic Swiss flights and a number of routes to other European countries).
