    Keenan Thompson turns 42 next week.

    He was Russ Tyler 26 years ago.

    It should be noted that without the opportunity to go outside and really experience NYC - there is no point to living in NYC. And it's been pretty much hammered by COVID so I imagine people would head elsewhere if they could.

    Plus, didn't Kenan get a show picked up? I'd imagine that show is being shot in LA so it's quite possible he lives in both cities.

    He had a sitcom announced at last year's up-fronts, they delayed it a year. Sounds pretty marginal - one of those "mom's dead, let's party" deals.

    Looked it up, and Kenan actually lives in Tampa of all places.

    Tampa is an easier flight to NYC than going cross country I guess. FWIW lots of pro wrestlers live in Tampa because of easy flights and great weather.

    And no state tax.

    SNL's season finale is this weekend. Will be interested to see how much they try to manage remotely.

    Also, this actually looks like it might be a good watch. Looks pretty loyal to the real story -- except to say Pete's dad died in a fire, when he was actually killed in duty during 9/11.

    I noticed Steve Buscemi made an appearance. He was a fireman at one point and went boots to the ground on 9/11.

    I really wish they’d keep doing shows. These SNL at Homes have been much needed. To me, at least.

    Agreed. It's "summer break" time for them anyway, but I kind of wonder if they'd re-up for like, a six or 10-episode "mini-season," similar to how they do a Weekend Update show in time during election years.

    They did 18 episodes this season, compared to 21 last season, with a month off due to coronavirus. They could at least do three more and call it even.
