Jane Curtin on Weekend Update was great gamely delivering some of the special's best lines.
For Lorraine Newman and Dan Ackroyd it was "All About That Bass." It was particularly nice seeing Lorraine Newman again since she's been so long out of the spotlight; she was terrific and nearly unrecognizable reprising her "That's great bass!" blink-or-you'll-miss-her Bass-O-Matic role with Dan Ackroyd. She looked great! She was always underrated.
I guess it's true that pretty boys are hit the hardest by Father Time given Chevy Chase's jowls; who knew Garrett Morris as his interpreter for the hard of hearing would age better.
I can't believe 13 plus years have passed since Paul Simon's 9/11 SNL appearance; he looks like he's pushing 80.
The best part for me was seeing the audition tapes for most of the original 1975 cast, plus the ones for the ones Lorne Michaels made the mistake of not hiring, like Jim Carrey.
