Re-run on the E! (must be for educational) channel late night Monday 1-2 am. Get them VCRs ready. I believe it's the episode from 1978 where FZ plays host and musical guest (leading the way for J-Lo and Britney no doubt).  ;D<br>noddy

I just watched it!!!!!!!  ;D ;D ;D ;D I swear, I had such a big ass smile on my face through "Dancin' Fool" ! Right after they announce his name at the top of the show, the camera cuts right to him, and he's looking right at the cam with THOSE EYES....his hands on hips, all full of confidence, as if to say, "Yeah, I OWN this stage!"  :D :-* It had been ages since I'd seen this one, so it was great to see him boppin' all over the stage with so much energy, no sickness  :'(----it seemed as if I was watching it for the first time. The cool thing about it being on E! is the sketch "A Night ON Freak Mountain" was put back in (it was cut when SNL originally went into syndication years ago), only to have the first few minutes cut, but that's alright. Unfortunately, I did notice as the cast came on the stage at the end, only Larraine Newman would have anything to do with him, all the rest stood far away  ::) He's supposedly (in the minds of the SNL cast) the worst host ever, but I've seen quite a number who were much worse. Sure, he read off cue cards, but he said in interviews after how hard it was to keep track of which camera to look at, and that the script kept changing  :-/   Anyway, VERY enjoyable!!!!!!!!!
