    Can’t wait to watch Season 38!!

    Good luck to the new featured players!

  • Ralph Hahn

    I may not have a big-screen television set on September 16th. IF the Grand Central Terminal set is still up in Studio 8H after many, many years, I may just smash my nearly $2,000 investment into little pieces.

  • Ralph Hahn

    The NBC release didn’t happen to announce who’s left the show and who’s been promoted from featured player to “NRFPT Player.”

  • Suzy

    Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg/Samburg? have already left and Jason Sudeikis may leave after the election. I haven’t seen if anyone has been promoted to featured player but I have a feeling there will be at least one (Taran Killam).

  • Justin


    Abby Elliott has also left and it’s “rumored” Jason Sudeikis will leave too.
