  • Summary
    Don't question Dick Ebersol - not if you want face-time on "Saturday Night Live" these days. He single-handedly restructured the entire show, altering it from an ensemble production to a one-man showcase of Eddie Murphy's talents - or so it may seem, since the rest of the cast, save for Joe Piscopo, hardly appear on the show. Mary Gross and Tim Kazurinzky manage to star in a few sketches now and then, but most future audiences are surprised to learn that Julia Louis-Dreyfus began performing on "Saturday Night Live" this season. Not so hard to overlook, since much of the focus of the season surrounded the mysterious assassination of Buckwheat, which spawned a Kennenedy-esque reporting style from news sources around the globe.
