  • Notes

    • This season finale officially makes this the shortest season in SNL history, with just 12 episodes. The previous record was a tie, held by the 13-episode 6th season (from 1980-81) and the 13th season (1987-88). Both of these seasons (ironically enough) also involved writer's strikes, but the 6th season was cut short for several other reasons (new producer, entirely new cast and crew, low ratings, bad reviews), and almost everyone involved in that season was let go.
