The episode sucked, but was worth watching.

Funny to see the way the format changed.

2 musical guests/2 songs each
one video
The Muppets
Carlin doing 4 (3 maybe?) stan up spots, but no sketches
2 other stand up comics

The show sucked ass.  Even Carlin's stand-up wasn't great, except the religion bit which I believe was the last one he did.  The sketches seemed just as pointless then as they are now, the music was atrocious, and the the other stand-ups were embarrassingly bad.  I was disappointed.  Other than a few "best of" bits, I've seen very little of SNL in the '70s and I was expecting better.

I'm as big an SNL fan as there ever was/is, but yeah, even I have to admit a lot of the early stuff, during it's first few  years, really doesn't hold up today..but back in the day, it was groundbreaking stuff...
