SNL's Lorne Michaels Explains Taran Killam & Jay Pharoah Departures

Saturday Night Live‘s head honcho Lorne Michaels has given an interview about the sudden departures of Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah, two fan favorites.

“I think they were great, and they did wonderful work when they were with us,” Lorne told USA Today. “They served the show well, and are two people I really care about. [But] change is the lifeblood of the show; it always has been. And you have to keep bringing new people in. Hopefully it’s for the best. I’m not worried about either of them going on to success.”

Saturday Night Live will debut this Saturday.
