Trivia

Madonna appears in the cold opening to read a "statement" from NBC about the previous season: "It was all a dream. A horrible, horrible dream." (This was a reference to the May 1986 season finale of Dallas (1978), which revealed that show's full 1985-1986 season to have been a dream.) The show was nearly canceled due to poor ratings in the previous season, but Lorne Michaels convinced NBC that he could improve the show by revamping the cast. See more »
