Episode Notes
Steve Martin's fourteenth time hosting, a SNL record (which Steve Martin will break again when he hosts again in season 34).

Maya Rudolph returns for the first time since giving birth

Finesse Mitchell does not appear until the goodnights.

This is the highest rated episode of the season so far, pulling in 9.3 million viewers.

Steve Martin's first time hosting in 11 1/2 years.

Even though he did make a cameo appearance during SNL's 15th Anniversary special, this is Prince's first time on a regular SNL episode since the Charlene Tilton episode from season 6 (making it 25 years since he last appeared on a regular episode of SNL).

With this episode, Paula Pell (one of SNL's writers) returns to the show after her sitcom pilot "Thick & Thin" (which featured Chris Parnell) failed to get picked up and made into a series.



Episode Goofs
Despite having the perfect opportunity when Fred Armisen is in front of the mirror, the real Prince did not make an appearance in the "Prince Show" sketch.
