There's a second musical guest, as well -- Randy Newman. Not a shabby night.
The show airs at 4 PM in Los Angeles. Times might be different in your locale. Also, this isn't the regular VH1 channel, but what's called VH1 Classic Rewind. In my area in West Los Angeles on Time-Warner, that's channel 120.
By the way, if you missed the first-ever SNL that NBC aired last night in the show's regular time-slot, VH1 Classic Rewind will be airing it right after the Paul Simon-Art Garfunkle episode, starting at 5:30 PM (again, that's Los Angeles time.)
It was interesting to see that first show last night, with George Carolin as the host, and two musical guests -- Billy Preston and Janis Ian -- along with a comedy bit with Andy Kaufman, a film by Albert Brooks, and a sketch by the Muppets when they were regulars. George Carlin was more of a moderator, delivering comedy monologues throughout, not appearing in any sketches, and the show came across more as a free-spirited variety show. Some of the cast's Second City roots came through, as well, with there being a black-out sketch in a courtroom.
(During the show, there's a segment with Paul Simon promoting the show next week, and he notes that the guest will be his "ex-partner" Art Garfunkle.)
But perhaps the most interesting thing came at the very beginning, during the opening credits, which proved pretty much that the show was live. (Incidentally, the show wasn't called Saturday Night Live at that point, but just Saturday Night. Hence, of course, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night...") Anyway, during the opening credits, as the show's loooongtime announcer, Don Pardo -- who was with the program for its first 39 years -- made the introductions, when it came to the cast, he said..."And the Not For Ready Prime Time Players..."
No, that wasn't a typo on my part. He accidentally inverted the words "Ready" and "For." And you could tell he at least sensed something was wrong, because there was just a slight pause after he said the word "For." But he quickly recovered and continued on, even if it made no sense.
