Episode Notes
Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the 22nd alumnus to host SNL as well as the first female former castmember to host an episode, the fourth Dick Ebersol-era castmember to host SNL (the other three are: Billy Crystal, Eddie Murphy, and Martin Short), and the third castmember from the NBC sitcom Seinfeld to host.

This show was dedicated to Al Camoin, a former cameraperson for SNL who died two days before the live broadcast. A longtime NBC employee, he worked on the show from 1975 to 1987.

The cold opening was written by former SNL staff writer Kristen Gore, the daughter of former Vice President Al Gore.

The "Techpack" sketch was cut from the previous week's dress rehearsal.

Episode Goofs
Unsolved Mysteries was canceled in 2002, so it doesn't make sense that they would have a sketch about filming a re-enactment. Also Robert Stack, the host of UM, died on May 14th, 2003.
