Soon, you may be able to see. Lorne Michaels “live from the golf course!”
On, Dec. 20, the Saturday Night Live creator told CBS Mornings co-host Gayle King that it could be a “really good time to leave” after the NBC series hits its 50th anniversary.
The venerable producer, who is considered the king of late-night comedy, added, “I won’t want the show ever to be bad. This is something that I deeply care about. This has been my entire life’s work. It’s my life’s work. I will do whatever I can to ensure it continues and prospers,” he stated.
The variety comedy series is now in its 47th season, which would see Lorne looking at retirement when the show runs in 2024 and into 2025.
In the interview, he also reflected on the of impact SNL’s 40th anniversary had on him in 2015. He said, “Just watching all the generations. Casting anyone into the show you have no faith in is a bad idea. Although you may not know the outcome, it is your decision.
