Kenan Thompson, cast member following Lorne Michaels' comments on his possible Saturday Night Live retirement, has expressed his thoughts about the show's potential future or lack thereof.
Michaels, who sat down with Gayle King on CBS Morning in December, has discussed his intention to stay with the program till its 50th anniversary. I'm hoping that that comes to pass, and I've a feeling that this would be a great time to leave.
Thompson believes Season 50 might be the perfect time to conclude the sketch series as Michaels' leadership is so essential to the program's success and success.
During a recent interview on Comedy Centrals Hell of a Week, he said that 50 is a good value.
He continued: "He's the one who's had his say on the whole thing." It opens the door for a lot of bullst to enter the game because he's such a legend that he keeps off those corporate predators.
The result of this study is that the majority of Americans are unsure about what to expect from the future.
Thompson, who is currently the longest-running cast member on the Saturday Night Live, expressed concern about budget cuts that might arise following his departure.
He said that at that point, you cannot really do the same sort of program. That program costs a lot of money every week. It's a unique experience. It's the only one.
Do you think SNL may (or should?) continue without Michaels' guidance? Share your thoughts below.
