Giuliani bids farewell on "Saturday Night Live''

Rudy Giuliani makes his last appearance in his role of mayor on this week’s “Saturday Night Live.” Ellen DeGeneres is hosting the year finale.

Lorne Michaels will launch “SNL’s” Colin Quinn as host of his own series from New York, starting March 4. And on May 4, Michaels will executive produce a giant, live, three-hour NBC special celebrating the network’s 75th anniversary.

He tells me the show “will pay respects to entertainment, news and sports.” It will emanate from Studio 8H, home to “SNL.” The studio has been a TV landmark since 1937 when a live premiere concert by the NBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Arturo Toscanini was broadcast from the studio. It was also home to the “Eddie Cantor Show,” “The Fred Waring Show,” “Kraft Television Theater,” “Your Hit Parade” and was the “Space Command Center” for NBC News in the ’60s. Jeff Gaspin and Rick Ludwin are leading the NBC team for the 75th special.
