With #SNL40 trending high on Twitter tonight, lots of eyes are on the “Saturday Night Live” special. As the stars began to pour in for the evening’s events, one appearance grabbed viewers attention when a clearly uncomfortable Chevy Chase endured a painful red carpet interview with NBC’s Carson Daly. Chevy apologized for sweating and looked incredulous as Daly sounded as if he were diminishing Chevy’s contributions to the 'SNL' legacy. Ouch.
Of course, Twitter responded in kind with equal part worry and snark:
I hope Chevy Chase is ok because that was a weird interview w Carson Daly. Felt bad for both there.

I think Chevy Chase is about to have a stroke. Can someone send a doctor? #SNL40RedCarpet

Chevy Chase just had to resist every urge to say "Part of the cast? I was the cast!" #SNL40

Chevy Chase is as bloated as his ego. #SNL40

Betty White, 93, lucid. Chevy Chase, 71, spaced out. #SNL40 Carson Daly said Chase was "part of" the 1st cast. Chase: "Part of? I was!"

Chevy Chase just made Betty White seem young, hopeful, and full of life. #SNL40
