And speaking with Charlamagne tha God in early 2020, he said, "I personally think I should be done with that show because they make fun of me on it."

Like it or not like it a shiatload, you are a celebrity. You are a celebrity on a show that famously mocks both celebrities and it's own cast.

I like Pete. almost seems like SNL didn't know what to do with him, then he became pop culture famous and they still didn't know what to do with him

but I loved this sketch

And that's about the last time we saw him, honestly.  I think he did one more pre-taped sketch after that.

I don't hate the guy or wish him ill or anything but for an eight year run I gotta say I can't recall a single chuckle or skit he was in.

I just don't get this guy's popularity at all. I mean, I don't dislike him, he just seems rather ordinary.

But hey, I'm middle-aged and out of touch, what do I know?

He sometimes shows up to go on a self-deprecating rant during WU.

I've never thought Kim K was ridiculously hot, she's OK mostly. I'm not going full Jordan Peterson here, am I?

Crap. I like him, but they are losing the power houses and keeping some pretty plain vanilla talent in their place.

Tomorrow let's talk about it in the season finale thread.
Because new worthless trump imposter and more Mikey day isn't going to work - the cast is too big still to add new people to.

Davidson's is the iconic voice of his generation, this a *MASSIVE*loss for SNL. Wow, I can't even.
Smh
 
2022-05-20 5:58:35 PM  
I've found some of his sketches funny, but I don't think he'll have a career outside of SNL worth anything. He seems like a decent guy who cleaned up his life, but that doesn't translate into success.

This is good, but mostly because he can't stay in character.

I am not that farker, but Kyle gives me an instinctual "AVOID" feeling. Don't know why or what it is about him but everything in me say "flee" as soon as he's on the screen.

Kate leaving.
Ugh.

I like Kate and Aidy, but there comes a point where I just want to see well-established cast members make way for new faces.

Kenan Thompson being the lone exception, of course.  He can stay on SNL until the heat death of the universe.

There's actually talk of him taking over as Executive Producer after Lorne Michaels retires, though I think it's more likely that they haul Michaels out of 30 Rock in a body bag than he actually retires.
 
2022-05-20 6:41:21 PM  
Outside of all the reporting of drama, which I try to stay away from, he was rather good, when he was there, on SNL.  I liked some, not all, of his characters, which were par or above for the show.  I also actually liked The King of Staten Island.  Anyway, kinda sorry he's found himself in the Kardashian orbit.  I mean, if I ever found myself there, I would step into an airlock, and then open the pod bay doors, venture outward into space and enjoy those final moments...

Sure, "retires" is something of a euphemism in Lorne's case, but the point still holds.

There are no words for how much I love this sketch, but it's Adam Driver's show. Pete, as usual, just plays Pete.

He was in all but the most recent of the John Mulaney "Broadway" bits (Diner Lobster, Bodega Bathroom, Airport Sushi, etc), but hardly what made them funny.

I don't watch a lot of SNL anymore but honestly the sketches I remember the most over the past 10 years are either him or Kate McKinnon.

/for instance: I love Trees.

It's never PD doing the breaking up.
It's always the chick.
He might have his head screwed on semi-normal these days.

But most the chicks broke up with him due to his threats of self harm.

Holy shiat!

Looks aren't everything and I guess I can see how he fills a certain niche but damn, dude must be a good guy to pull all that. I had no idea. Credit to him, all I can do is tip my cap I suppose.

And (Villasingor?) was great as Pete's torturer.

I think it would have been funnier with this added:

"Are there any questions?"
[hand shoots up]
"DO YOU HAVE AN INTERN PROGRAM??"
"I DO NOW!!!!"

Over the one year shy of three decades since his band's only real hit (that I'm aware of)? Some things are just for fun and not everything is meant to last and that is alright.
