  • Notes

    • An April Fools' joke that got out of control stated that Drew Carey would host this episode and that he had conviced Lorne Michaels to let him do an all-improv show. Many wire services even picked up on the rumor, but it was debunked a few days later by Drew Carey's publicist. After that rumor was over, word leaked that someone named Chris would be hosting this episode. Many people assumed it would be Chris Tucker, so it was a pleasant surprise to learn that it would be Christopher Walken.
