    • During the Liza Minnelli sketch, a stagehand can be seen moving the lamp cord.

    • At one point in the last half-hour of the show, the live feed cut to the SNL crew setting up an ESPN-style talk show set, presumably for the next sketch. However, said sketch did not appear in the live show.
