  I called it a night and turned the TV off about 12:30, and the Steve
Martin SNL was still airing. They didn't join the live SNL in progress. I
don't recall reading anything in the Boston papers the last few days about
Channel 7 passing on last night's SNL. Did any other New England NBC
affiliates pass on the live SNL in favor of the alternate Steve Martin feed?
