Alterations

Although the initial press releases for the show claimed that the DVD release was completely uncut, this proved to not be entirely true when watched closely:

  • All bumpers except for the one between the last sketch and good nights have been cut. Broadway Video has explained that they don't consider the bumpers to be part of the show.
  • In the Rob Reiner and Dick Cavett hosted episodes, there were originally no credits because the episodes ran long. In the DVD version of the episodes, the credits roll over a montage of bumpers.
  • A parody of a Wrigley's Gum commercial which appeared in the Rob Reiner and Buck Henry episodes has been removed from both episodes.
