…..Howard Hesseman

Howard Hesseman: Listen — every time I’ve watched “Saturday Night Live”… I’ve seen and heard hosts stand up here and say what an extraordinary week it’s been. Uh — extraordinary is really an understatement. This has been, uh — juicy. [ everyone laughs with him ] I’ve gotta thank all the people at “WKRP” for making it easy for me to be here. I certainly have to thank the cast and the staff and the crew of this show for really putting themselves into it all the time — it’s sensational. I’d like to thank Randy Newman for being here. [ everyone applauds ] Yeah! I’d also like to thank radio for making television possible! And I’d like to thank… each and every one of you for making yourselves possible this evening! Thank you! Good night!

Announcer: Next Saturday night, our host will be Martin Sheen with musical guest David Bowie. And watch “The BEST of Saturday Night Live” on Wednesday at 10/9 Mountain and Central. This is the multilingual Don Pardo, saying: “In English!” Good night.
