Did You Know?
At the end of the show, Milton Berle
broke into a "dreary version" of the 1950s standard "September Song" and according to Lorne Michaels
, loaded the audience with friends and family members who awarded his performance of the tune with a standing ovation. Michaels told Dave Wilson
immediately afterwards that this show was the worst ever; he kept it from appearing in syndicated reruns later. See more
