This episode was aired on a seven-second delay. The first time this happened was when Richard Pryor hosted the show in 1975.
David Johansen as Buster Poindexter was scheduled to appear in the show but was bumped due to a lack of time.
At the beginning of the Weekend Update segment, Dennis Miller says "Never let them see you sweat." This was because the set was not completely assembled until moments before he went on the air.
In the "Krypton Survives" sketch, the phone continues to ring after 'Sam Kinison' picks it up. He ad-libs "I answered the phone. Will you stop ringing it?"
