Host Predictions
JM5000

A little early to start making predictions, perhaps...But then again, last season revealed the first few hosts in August as well... Now that they have revealed a few people getting the boot (two of which I wasn't expecting, I will admit), I expect the first three shows to be leaked soon... Though I wouldn't be surprised if...

‘Saturday Night Live’ Featured Player Jon Rudnitsky To Depart

By Nellie Andreeva5 hours ago

Jon Rudnitsky joins Saturday Night Live veterans Taran Killam & Jay Pharoah on the list of cast members who won’t be returning next season, the venerable NBC late-night sketch comedy’s 42nd.

Rudnitsky joined SNL as a featured player at the beginning of last season, the only new cast addition for Season 41 when there were no departures.

Dirty Dancing parody. His list of impersonations on the show included Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, Tom Cruise and Vladimir Putin.

Rudnitsky is a stand-up comedian who won the 2012 Laugh Factory’s Laugh Bowl college comedy competition and performed with The Groundlings before joining SNL.

Breaking News: Matt Villines Dead at 39
One half of the "Matt and Oz" film-making duo has passed away just shy of his 40th birthday. With collaborative partner Osmany "Oz" Rodriguez, Villines produced several memorable film shorts on SNL from 2012 to 2016, including the Emmy-nominated "(Do It In My) Twin Bed." In spite of being diagnosed with cancer in early 2015, Villines worked on SNL until the end of Year 41.

Random Thoughts: Fred Armisen/Courtney Barnett (5/21/16)
RIP SNL Forum. I'll get the ball rolling into this new era:

+ With the Democratic nomination within reach, the cold open tonight is a tragedy on two levels. First of all, it reminded us that Hillary Clinton's imminent clinch is just a reminder that she's the anti-Trump, much in the same way Donald Trump is the anti-Hillary. Secondly, this likely marks the last time Larry David will waltz in and play the kvetch king Bernie Sanders. The Vermont senator is dispatched figuratively and literally, but not without a charming, "Nutcracker"-inspired dance number.
+ The two sketches that aired after the second commercial might have been two of the best of Season 41. We've seen the pretentious, unpleasant Regine before, and having vBay and Aidy play her foils was nothing new either, but this particular outing had a different energy. This awful woman still has a gazillion ...

Season 42 Offseason Changes
OK, Stu, I will do my best to soldier on with the new forum, but I still think it sucks balls....

We usually have a topic to discuss predicted changes for the new season, so here it is. My speculations:

--No major cast changes. Rudnitsky had a notably weak first season, but it's difficult to evaluate any new cast fairly after a season in which the writing was so spotty. Look what happened with Jenny Slate, for example. Anyway, Lorne needs to get back to a policy of giving new cast two seasons to make their bones (obvious disasters like Mike O'Brien excepted).

--Everyone is talking about how bad the writing was yet again this season, but almost nobody has noted the huge turnover in the writing staff the past 2-3 seasons. They have revamped the writer's room...and it's not working. That is a sign ...
