Saturday Night Live Season 7 Episode 1

I love this episode as a time capsule of how the late '70s/early '80s were for television and pop culture. Definitely watch the Andy Warhol piece (which was apparently a recurring thing throughout the O'Donoghue years) and the Norman Mailer sketch, "Pros and Cons". It's pretty much all quality material, though.
