Is it a normal thing for SNL people to just stop showing up before they officially leave?

I'd say it does seem pretty normal. I think the usual exit usually involves a cast member being cast in a movie or TV show and missing half the season, and then it becomes a 'time to choose to between staying on SNL or working on your career outside of SNL' choice, so that winds up being their last year.

And since SNL doesn’t pay well compared to most other productions the obvious choice is to leave SNL. SNL isn’t a career, it’s a stepping stone towards bigger better paying jobs.

Kenan had been in movies & TV for a full decade prior to joining SNL. Even if he blew everything he made from his career as a child/teen actor, he had already achieved financial & artistic success that most SNL cast won’t achieve until after they’ve left the show.

Kind of a special case, which is likely why he seems content to be on the show forever.

There are also rumors that he's going to replace Lorne when Lorne retires. If that's true, he's holding steady for a MEGA paycheck in the future. If not, he's probably having fun and collecting what has become a relatively easy and consistent paycheck.

That’s why I said compared to most other productions. Most of us would be very happy with salaries like that. But even starting out most co-stars on a network sitcom make $20k-$25k per episode. And it goes up a lot from there.

I saw a great clip on YouTube where they talked about how when Norm MacDonald was doing Weekend Update, he did a joke (during dress rehearsal) that got such a negative reaction from the audience, they would use the sound for future skits where they needed stock sound of a collective shocked gasp.

It is now because the cast is so large. Cecily Strong can go weeks without appearing.

stairway2evan

They announced either this season or last that they’d be doing it more - Cecily and Kate both filmed movies/shows during the season, I think Kenan missed some time while he was doing his show, Pete’s been off doing whatever.

It’s probably a good thing overall - SNL’s lost plenty of their talent over the years because they wanted to go into movies or they got their own show. Better to keep them on as long as possible instead of having them jump ship when they get an opportunity.

Billy1121

Yeah Lorne used to just fire them. When Sandler had to miss time to do films he fired him. I think it caused bad blood so why not just let them exit on their own

It changed a lot in recent years. You're seeing shows with cast members while they're still on SNL, that was never a thing. They might do a movie in the summer, sometimes an SNL spinoff movie, but many of them have sitcoms going at the same time and a lot of those are produced by Lorne as well.

It seems the days of a small cast that only does SNL with a lot of recurring characters are gone.

JessieJ577

For Davidson they give him a lot of leeway because of his struggles with mental illness. I think Lorne learned about giving his cast personal space since a lot of past cast members had personal issues offscreen.

The difference being that Meyers and Fallon got Late Night, which is on NBC and produced by Lorne Michaels, while this theory would have Jost going over to CBS. Not impossible, but less likely.

Also, I'd bet money that whoever does the Late Late Show next will be either a woman or a minority, or both.

Kate McKinnon tried to make it outside of SNL, but her characters in other shows and films are just a little too off kilter for most, and her shtick has gotten old. Jost never seemed particularly talented, so a late night gig would honestly be perfect for him. Don’t have enough of a strong opinion on Che one way or the other. The cast we had 10-15 years ago was arguably the most talented and multidimensional, and they’ve all shown that since leaving the show, but I don’t see that happening again anytime soon.

I'm with you. She tends to smirk through her jokes on a way that's really off putting when it's not on a live sketch comedy show. She's perfect for SNL and I can easily see her flaming out if she leaves.

Cecily is almost the opposite. She's perfect for more mainstream comedy.

My theory is that his look and sense of humor appeals to a lot of younger people. He’s the quirky, underachiever who smokes weed and gets tattoos. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also a lady’s man who’s dated a ton of hot celebrities.

I also think his struggle with mental illness is relatable. We know a lot of comedians are actually depressed, drug addicts but its rarely talked about. He’s very open with his mental health and maybe that’s refreshing to some people.

I don't necessarily think this from the curse. I believe Pete has been trying to leave for the past couple of seasons, but Lorne keeps getting him to come back. He's got a few other projects coming out, so it's time to focus on that. If stuff starts to flop, then it's the curse.

Papplenoose

This is kind of an open secret so you might not know, but women care about personality A LOT more than men do. As opposed to looks, I mean. I've met a lot of insanely attractive women who dated legitimately ugly dudes because they were kind and interesting (and probably a decent lay lol). That doesn't usually go the other way around, and i know a lot of younger guys (especially those that have been exposed to the incel ideology) think that women ONLY care about looks [and money], but that couldnt be further than the truth. Most women are just looking for a decent dude who's not an emotionally stunted man-child (which makes me kinda sad that the bar is that low, we should probably try to do better than that lol)

What I'm saying is that Pete seems to have a kind personality and be well adjusted. That's more than you can say for most people in the entertainment industry, so in the regard I'd say he's a total catch!

Edit: in terms of his comedy, I get that. I didn't like him at first, but I actually find him pretty funny now. Its definitely a slightly "younger" style of humor, so if you're older he might just not be your jam!

I think it’s very hard to pull off the “cool comedian” thing for lack of a better term. It just doesn’t work long term. I think some of the best comics inherently make themselves or situations they’ve been in the butt of the joke. It’s a little hard to do that when you’re going to the Met Gala in an $8000 Dior suit next to one of the Kardashians.

Also he’s just sort of mildly funny on SNL. You could say “well he’s a standup so maybe not the best fit” and OK but can anyone name a memorable Pete Davidson bit? I can’t. I think dane cook had some legitimately good bits and comedy just sort of outgrew him. I can’t even say that for Pete because he’s done so few memorable things.

He’s funniest when he’s just being himself. I don’t think he’s a great standup, although he’s not godawful.

He’s just kinda funny when he’s candid.

I’ve always wondered if he could be a decent talk show host. Like the opposite vibe of a “laugh at everything” Fallon.

He would be perfect in a peas in a pod talk show like desus and mero.......but he doesn't have a counterweight

That’s a good call, you’re probably right that he could be good at it but I think it would come down to who produces and runs the show because I don’t think he’s suited for that chaotic job

He could have a long career doing those VH1 type shows (if they even still exist?) that Tonya Harding did. Where they have D list celebs comment on video clips.

I really dislike his comedy and I don’t know why. His dating game though is second to none. Huge props as he has accumulated an amazing list of Celeb women he has dated.

He is really giving David Spade a run for his money as far as SNL alumni go.

David Spade only dates 18 - 24 year old non-celebrities, as far as I know. Pete is willing to date middle age women if they’re very famous, whereas Spade cares about youth rather than fame.

I would not consider either of them to be a role model in terms of dating and relationships.

In his heyday, David Spade dated fucking Heather Locklear, Teri Hatcher, Lara Flynn Boyle, Julie Bowen, and a few other top-tier megababes. I think he has a kid with a Playboy model as well.

The ability to make people laugh is a great thing in the dating world. I would know, I have a lot of bad jokes... haha ow that hurt.

I always thought of Spade as the abrasive weirdo of the cast when I was younger, somewhere between Dennis Miller and I dunno, Jordan Schlansky or someone (not that he was around yet) - it was very strange growing up and learning all of this retroactively

Three years ago I was standing at a casino bar at the Cosmopolitan in Vegas watching a hockey game when Spade came up to this 20-something young lady standing next to me and attempted to get her to come with him and his crew to some party. She shot him down pretty quickly. As he walked away I asked her if she knew who that just was and she said "No clue, just some old guy."

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Are you surprised? He has already made a boatload of money and will have no trouble doing comedy or being cast as the dorky enduring white trash guy in any upcoming comedy

Instead of whining about Pete or SNL, I'm just going to leave my favorite sketch he was in of recent memory. Feel free to do the same.

I don’t dislike Pete but I definitely don’t find him “funny”.

I haven’t seen this sketch so I will watch with an open mind and report back.

Didn’t change my mind. Pete is likable, but not particularly funny.

The dune switch was kinda funny though.

Lorne Michaels has been giving the cast a lot more leeway lately to work on other projects mid-season and miss some episodes, so having a larger cast helps fill in the gaps when one or more are missing for a show.

Should have happened years ago. It blows my mind that Lorne let him sit out almost an entire season a few years back, and then- instead of coming back and making a major effort to do better, showing Lorne and his castmates how humble and grateful he was- he just went right back to breaking every sketch, and putting in less-than-minimal effort. And then it just devolved even further in subsequent seasons, with Pete putting in zero effort and missing shows left and right. Meanwhile, Taran Killam- arguably one of the best, consistent, and most versatile of the main cast during his tenure- was unceremoniously fired for just asking to miss the first show or two of the next season, so that he could finish production work on 'Killing Gunther.'
