Impressions[]

February 18, 1978[]

On February 18, 1978, Chevy Chase became the first former cast member to host. When Murray met Chase, he tried to make things as clear as possible. That caused a fistfight just minutes before the show started. Laraine Newman tried to stop it, but luckily, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi stopped it. They pulled together to create one of the best shows of the season.
