  • Notes

    • Beginning with this season, repeat broadcasts of episodes have considerable changes to their live counterparts aside from segment reshuffling and sketches being added or dropped to the running order from other broadcasts (which was usually non-host material from episodes with no repeat broadcasts).

      Dress rehearsal versions of sketches or music performances now appear in repeat broadcasts. As well, material from dress rehearsal that did not make it to the live show occasionally replaces other sketches entirely. As well, the audio is now remixed for the rerun, with slight "sweetening" added to the audience reaction in places. The other noticeable change to the post-1985 broadcasts is that the bumpers, which are usually silent or have minimal music in the live broadcasts, now have the band audibly finishing the song as the show comes back from commercial.
