Kenan Thompson Leaving 'Saturday Night Live' After This Season
According to TMZ, Kenan Thompson will be leaving Saturday Night Live after this season. Sources connected to SNL say Thompson -- the most tenured African-American cast member in the show's history -- planned to leave last season, but decided to stay after head honcho Lorne Michaels asked him to stay on citing the show's massive turnover this season. Kenan has no hard feelings and is leaving on great terms. Sources say he's in talks for a new show and plans on moving to L.A. (with his wife and brand new baby) when the season ends.
