‘SNL’: Producer & Talent Chief Lindsay Shookus Exits After 20 Years
Lindsay Shookus, a producer on Saturday Night Live and head of its talent department, is leaving after 20 years.
Deadline understands that Shookus decided to leave the show ahead of this season given that it is essentially a rebuilding year with a number of key cast members such as Pete Davidson and Kate McKinnon leaving. She was offered a promotion but decided it was the right time to exit.
She has been with the venerable NBC late-night series for 20 years and 10 years as a producer. In that time, she has won six Emmys including an award for its 40th Anniversary special, which she played a pivotal role in.
...
To be honest, I do not know he she is. Her name doesn't ring a bell. I don't recall the names of most of the "behind the scenes" people.
I wish her well.

My hope for the first host is former SNL writer Bob Odenkirk who has never hosted. Would make a nice stop on his BCS victory lap, especially if it's the week before the Emmys.

Really? You never heard of her when she dating Ben Affleck between Jennifers? That's how most people know her.

Nope, and I’m not sure how I missed that.

I hope they finally get Nick Offerman to host

Strange it has not happened before when he was on Parks and Rec and probably cheaper to get in house NBC talent to host the show.

A lot of people think that Papa has been hinting at it with their new videos.

He made an audition tape on the last video.

Rob Schneider is not happy with the current state of the show


When Saturday Night Live dabbles in politics, they’re bound to ruffle someone’s feathers. Even cast veteran Rob Schneider wasn’t pleased with some of the sketch comedy series’ choices — especially during the 2016 election cycle — saying Kate McKinnon’s (as Hillary Clinton) rendition of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” was the moment he realized the show was “over.”

“I hate to crap on my own show,” Schneider told The Blaze’s Glenn Beck during a chat about how the comedian’s politics have shifted towards the right in recent years. The topic came up when Schneider accused some comedy shows of “indoctrinating” their viewers with more liberal political ideas.

Schneider explained: “When Hillary Clinton lost — which is understandable why she lost. She’s not exactly the most logical person in the room. And then when Kate McKinnon went out there on Saturday Night Live in the cold opening and all that, and she’s dressed as Hillary Clinton, and she started playing ‘Hallelujah.’ I literally prayed, ‘please have a joke at the end. Don’t do this. Please don’t go down there.’ And there was no joke at the end, and I went, ‘It’s over. It’s over. It’s not gonna come back.’”

Does anyone actually care for the opinion of an Anti-Vaxx D-list celebrity?

The late 80s/early 90s SNL sure produced a lot of right-wing cranks, didn't it?

If it wasn't for Adam Sandler, he'd be homeless. Fuck his opinion and his stupid shows where his characters were named "Rob." That's the level of his creativity.

I think Rob, VIctoria Jackson, and Dennis Miller are the known conservatives and Sandler is too but is not publicly open.

He probably votes that way to keep his fortune away from higher taxes,

He's talking about his own movies and career here, right?

Alex Moffat, Melissa Villaseñor and Aristotle Athari are not expected to return for the venerable NBC late-night program’s 48th season, according to a person familiar with the matter, adding to an exodus that began in May when Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Kyle Mooney and Pete Davidson revealed plans to exit the show.

I know a lot of people are impressed with Villasenor's talent, but she has never made a big impression on the show. And Moffat is just another generic white guy, imo. Athari never managed to do anything in a year.

So, no losses there. Get rid of Punkie Johnson as well.

I hope they're not replaced. The cast is too bloated as it is, even without the four that left in May. Hell, they can add another sketch with the time saved from not announcing so many names in the introduction.

😢. I love Melissa Villasenor. She cracked me up. I was hoping the departures would have given her more to do.

This is one of my favorite bits ever

And this recurring bit always cracks me up
