NBC to Re-Air Carrie Fisher's Saturday Night Live Episode

Shortly after Star Wars icon Carrie Fisher passed away last month, fans began digging through her extensive body of work to relive moments that touched their hearts and made them chuckle. Surprisingly, the episode of Saturday Night Live that she hosted all the way back in 1978 was one of those moments that got dug up and received a lot of renewed interest.

Apparently, NBC took notice of all that attention as well and is re-airing that classic episode — which also features The Blues Brothers as the musical guest — tonight at at 10/9c (SNL Vintage time slot).

Fisher used the sketch comedy show's opening monologue and skit to poke fun at her Princess Leia persona and the popularity of the Star Wars franchise. You can check out both in the video below.
