Live from New York!

In Live from New York, "Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels describes going to the White House to tape President Gerald Ford saying, "Live from New York, it's Saturday Night," the "SNL" intro:

"We'd done two or three takes, and to relax him, I said to him -- my sense of humor at the time -- 'Mr. President, if this works out, who knows where it will lead?' Which was completely lost on him."

[Among Ford's verbal bloopers? "I watch a lot of baseball on the radio" and "Things are more like they are now than they have ever been before".]
