SNL Facing Departures of Several Stars (Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant) After Tonight’s Show: Scooped Here on 4/28


Listen, kids, I told you on April 28th that several members of the “SNL” were exiting at the end of this season.

Saturday night’s show will mark the end at least for Kate McKinnon, Pete Davidson, Kyle Mooney and Aidy Bryant.

I thought Cecily Strong was done, too, but that seems up in the air. Lorne Michaels may want her to stay one more season with McKinnon leaving.

Look for a big farewell tonight. And read my article from April 28th, before anyone else wrote it.
