SNL Moment I
…..Susan St. James
Susan St. James: Hello. I’m Susan St. James. And on October 10th, 1981, I hosted the second show of SNL’s seventh season. The producer that year, and for the next three seasons, was a tall, handsome man named Dick Ebersol. I fell in love with Dick, and six weeks later we were married. Therefore, I became the first host of “Saturday Night” to marry the producer. I was not, however, the first host of “Saturday Night” to sleep with one of the producers. That host was.. Buck Henry.
SNL Moment II
O.J. Simpson: Hello. I’m O.J. Simpson, with another Saturday Night Moment! It was November 18th, 1977. For the first time ever, a black man kissed a white man on national TV. The white man, Bill Murray; the black man.. Walter Payton. A few seconds later, Payton became the first black man to kiss another black man on national TV, and a few weeks later, Payton had the ultimate humiliation when he didn’t break the single-season rushing record, held by Hall-of-Famer O.J. Simpson! This has been another Saturday Night Moment, I’m Hall-of-Famer O.J. Simpson.
