Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Rob Morrow is the host with musical guests Nirvana.

    Gotta love the 90's one of the more popular periods for SNL.

    Phil Hartman in the opening sketch makes fun of Oliver Stone, combines with the JFK conspiracy theory to look at an incident where George Bush Sr. vomited. Hilarious stuff see Dana Carvey once again play the bumbling President and Phil playing Barbara Bush.

    Rob Morrow is the guest host and talks about being at one time an extra for SNL back in 1982 playing role of "Juror Number 11" with Bill Murray in a skit. Obviously, he was picked to guest host because during this time he was in the popular show "Northern Exposure" on CBS.

    The "It's Pat" sketch was done well. Rob plays a friend of Pat getting her to play strip poker so she'll reveal whehter she's a guy or girl.

    Weekend Update with Kevin Nealon was decent. I don't get why they were fixated on making fun of Jan Brady from Brady Bunch but audience sure loved it. The dumb blonde jokes by Victoria Jackson were flat though.

    Nirvana played their great hits. Overall a decent show.moreless

    • During the goodnights of the original live broadcast, the three members of Nirvana are seen pretending to kiss and make out as they stand next to Rob Morrow. After a short conversation with NBC Standards & Practices, the goodnights were re-shot for the Pacific and Mountain time zone tape delay.

    • Kurt Cobain did shots of heroin earlier in the day of the episode's original broadcast with Courteney Love and vomited all day, and somehow managed to make it through the episode. He nearly collapsed after vomiting after the show.
