Performances: Red Hot Chili Peppers perform "Dani California" and "Give It Away."
Seth Meyers does not appear until the goodnights.
In the NBC reruns, the "Wheel of Fortune" sketch (where Pat Sajak [Tom Hanks] gets frustrated over a trio of idiot contestants who can't solve a simple puzzle) aired after Weekend Update while the "Claremont Yoga" sketch (where a yoga class student [Rachel Dratch] is paired with a disgusting man [Tom Hanks]) aired after the monologue.
In the parade portion of the "Ma!" sketch, there is a person dressed as SpongeBob SquarePants, even though Nickelodeon has moved its studios from Universal Studios Florida and has severed all ties with Universal, for all intents and purposes, in order for Viacom to use their Nickelodeon properties at their own theme parks.
