Trivia

After the end of the 1979-1980 season, in October 1980, Lorne Michaels and most of the original cast members who had all since left the show (Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Jane Curtin, etc.), reunited to put together a special that would parody the upcoming presidential election between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. The special was to air live on November 1 1980. But just a few days before the special was to air, Carter and Reagan decided to do another televised debate on November 1. Live coverage of the debate forced NBC to reschedule. NBC offered Michaels the chance to do the special the following week, but he refused because it would have been after the election and the material would no longer be topical. See more »
