April 19, 1980

The host for the episode is Strother Martin, and the musical guest is The Specials. The skits for this episode are as follows: Rosalyn Carter talks about sections of the 1980 census intended for illegal aliens, including questions about how they got into the US, where they would hide if the INS came to their homes, and how much they would be willing to do housework for. During his opening monologue, Strother Martin reveals that he was asked to host the show because Lorne Michaels mistook him for Tennessee Williams, and so far he's been keeping up the act. At Camp Beau Soleil, the campers are forced to learn French by the brutal camp counselor, Le Capitain, but a camper named Luke is determined to escape. Additional skits include a variety show will, the Conductor's Club, Any Town, and Food. The Specials perform "Gangsters" and "Too Much, Too Young".

May 31, 1980

Most of the original SNL fold, including Dan Aykroyd, gathered at Broadway Video to put together this pre-election shot at Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. Election Update was supposed to air live at 10:00 P.M. EST November 1, 1980. Sadly for the SNL fold, Reagan and Carter agreed to a sudden debate from Cleveland on October 28. Compulsory coverage of the debate forced NBC to reschedule a half-hour special featuring Bob Hope and a half-hour special featuring the Smothers Brothers.You know where NBC rehoused the Smotherses and Hope.Some at Broadway Video thought this was NBC's last volley against the original SNL. It was assumed NBC didn't want to air such a hard-hitting program three days before the election. The network offered Lorne the chance to do the special after the election but, of course, Lorne refused.
