Live From New York On Saturday Night, It Was LuPone, Linden & Baranski Theatre-lovers got a surprise when watching television the other night (Oct. 3). Although Saturday Night Live's guest host this past week, Kelsey Grammar, had a theatre background, who would've guessed he'd have guest stars Hal Linden, Christine Baranski and Patti LuPone on the show? In one sketch, Grammar played a television director for a Baywatch-esque series. Each time one of his swimsuit-draped beauties would deliver a scene a little flat, he would ask them to remember a sad situation -- one of abandonment...etc, then when the girls were sufficently emotional, the director would scream "Hose 'em down!!" and three stagehands (played by members of the SNL ensemble) would hose them down with a fire hose.

The scene then cut to Grammar directing a Broadway show -- you guessed it, starring Linden, Baranski and LuPone. They all said something along the lines of "what a wonderful honor it was to be working with the director." Then Grammar screamed, "Hose 'em down!!" and the stars of Visiting Mr. Green, The House of Blue Leaves, and Evita were drenched.
