  • Notes

    • Ruth Gordon was the oldest host in SNL history up to that point (two weeks older than Miskel Spillman when she hosted later that year), and the bipolar opposite in a classic generation gap. The atmosphere got so bad between her and the SNL fold that, when the show ended, Gordon walked directly out of the building. The cast and writers held the post-show party in the studio to ensure they would not bump into Gordon again.
