Eddie Murphy’s Short Return to SNL

Eddie Murphy's return to 'SNL' for first time in 30 years lasts 73 seconds

In one of the most highly-anticipated moments of "Saturday Night Live's" 40th anniversary special, Eddie Murphy returned to "SNL" for the first time since 1984. And his first appearance on the show in 30 years lasted exactly 73 seconds.

After a touching, three-and-a-half-minute introduction from Chris Rock — who called Murphy his idol ("I wanted to be Eddie Murphy") and credited the "Beverly Hills Cop" star with saving the NBC comedy show for future comedians like him (without Murphy, Tina Fey "would've been the funniest English professor at Drexel University") — Murphy, 53, took to the stage and received a standing ovation.
