    I love Kenan. Definitely one of the best parts of snl. they put all the Chris redid clips with him because they’re both on the show but this is best of like the last year or so. I was just hoping for more of like his best over the years like his first sketch.

    I gots to say: What Up With That? is genius recycling of a single joke. After seeing one segment, you know what's eventually going to happen, but there is just so much buildup and absurdity. A recent episode tried the same joke in the context of The Dionne Warwick Show, but it fell flat because they didn't build up to it.

    Honestly, NBC should have been using SNL as a sitcom pipeline for a long while. Put Tina Fey in charge of creative and then create a transition opportunity for long standing cast mates or additional writing opportunities for existing SNL staff. Seeing guys like Bobby Moynihan wasted or not being the home for Brooklyn 9-9 with Andy Samberg (from the beginning anyway) is foolish. You have an opportunity to recreate the SNL influence of the 2000s with Night at the Roxbury, Superstar, Ladies Man etc. Glad to see Kenan getting his but he's the Benjamin Button of the entertainment industry in that he was a movie star before he was ever a television star in his childhood.

    Supposedly Kenan makes $25,000 per episode of SNL. If that’s true, he his WAY under paid! I am glad he’s not planning to leave SNL, even with his new show.
