Saturday Night Live - Season 5 Episode 21 : Election Update 2020

Most of the original SNL fold, including Dan Aykroyd, gathered at Broadway Video to put together this pre-election shot at Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter. Election Update was supposed to air live at 10:00 P.M. EST November 1, 1980. Sadly for the SNL fold, Reagan and Carter agreed to a sudden debate from Cleveland on October 28. Compulsory coverage of the debate forced NBC to reschedule a half-hour special featuring Bob Hope and a half-hour special featuring the Smothers Brothers.You know where NBC rehoused the Smotherses and Hope.Some at Broadway Video thought this was NBC's last volley against the original SNL. It was assumed NBC didn't want to air such a hard-hitting program three days before the election. The network offered Lorne the chance to do the special after the election but, of course, Lorne refused.
