The word "Availability" was mispelled on the graphic during Tina Fey's joke about the morning after pill on Weekend Update. They mistakenly left out the third "I" in the word.
Tina Fey: According to a report by the New York City Council, not enough pharmacies are stocking the Morning After birth-control pill, despite a law requiring them to carry it. And, at the pharmacies that do carry it, I'd appreciate a little less attitude.
Sketches cut after dress rehearsal include a sketch about bartending, a sketch in which all the girls dress up as flowers and sing, and a commercial about smoked sausages cooked by Firestarter (the character Drew played in the 1984 movie of the same name); this commercial would later show up on air in Drew Barrymore's February 2007 hosting appearance.
Sketches not shown in the 60 minute version: "Octane," "Larry King Live," "Spy Glass," "The White Stripes," "The Prince Show," "The World of Scott Wainio" (film), and Kelis' performance of "Trick Me."
In the Jarrett's Room sketch, during Jarrett's fantasy about Gobi's sister (played by Drew Barrymore), the red lounge jacket that Jarrett wears looks an awful lot like the lounge jacket that Christopher Walken wears when he played The Continental for the times he hosted in 2000 and 2001 (the 1990, 1992, 1996, and 2003 episodes, Walken wore a different lounge jacket).
This is Drew Barrymore's fourth time hosting the show. In one promo, she said, "Now that it's my fourth time, I'm ready to do the show live now!"
Will Forte is the latest in the post-Ferrell revolving door of performers portraying George W. Bush.
During the Donatella Versace sketch, Courtney Love (Drew Barrymore) mistakes Elton John (Horatio Sanz) as Rosie O'Donnell. This could be an in-joke because Sanz sometimes plays O'Donnell.
