Until summer '78, the first Saturday of any given month was normally given to NBC Weekend with Lloyd Dobyns, so in-season repeats were rare for the first three seasons of the show. In those years' summaries, I'm posting the usual non-repeats/last repeated/most-repeated, but also listing the seasons in which repeats first aired (my rule: anything before the season premiere counts as the previous season). As well, original cast era shows aired on NBC up to summer '81, so any repeats after that period are noted (as opposed to the two-season window I use for the 1981-later shows)

Season 1 (1975-76):
Not repeated: Candice Bergen 12/75, Raquel Welch, Dyan Cannon, Buck Henry 5/76*, Louise Lasser
*content may have been edited into another Henry show repeat
Last repeated: George Carlin (11/8/80)
Most repeated: George Carlin (4 repeats*), Richard Pryor (3 repeats), Candice Bergen 11/75 (2**), Lily Tomlin (2), Elliott Gould 1/76 (2), Peter Cook & Dudley Moore (2), Desi Arnaz (2), Jill Clayburgh (2), Anthony Perkins (2), Madeline Kahn (2), Elliott Gould 5/76 (2)

Season 3 (1977-78):
All shows repeated (assumed; I'm not sure if the repeat of Henry 5/78 I have listed for the summer was actually the same episode that was mostly Henry 11/77 with pieces from 5/77 and 5/78 edited in to remove the Anyone Can Host contest segments; there was a newspaper strike in summer '78 that also affected our ability to find accurate TV listings around that time).

1978-79: Miskel Spillman, Art Garfunkel, Robert Klein
