The nuclear debate

This 1979 clip from NBC's Saturday Night Light shows that some things never change...

The format is a parody of the Point/Counterpoint segment of CBS' 60 Minutes, in which Shana Alexander and James Kirkpatrick would engage in a short, well-mannered debate on topical subjects. It became a recurring feature on SNL's Weekend Update until founding cast members Akroyd and Curtin left the show. The phrase "Jane, you ignorant slut" became a part of the national zeitgeist.
