Rob Schneider says ‘SNL’ was ‘over’ after Kate McKinnon ‘Hallelujah’ efficiency

In a dialog on Glenn Beck’s podcast, Schneider stated that McKinnon’s post-presidential election chilly open on the piano, throughout which she sang Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” dressed as Hilary Clinton, was the start of the tip for the present.

“I hate to crap on my own show,” he stated. “When Hillary Clinton lost — which is understandable. She’s not exactly the most likable person in the room. And then when Kate McKinnon went out there on ‘Saturday Night Live’ in the cold opening and all that, and she started dressed as Hillary Clinton, and she started playing ‘Hallelujah,’ I literally prayed. ‘Please have a joke at the end.'”

He continued: “Don’t do this. Please don’t go down there.’ And there was no joke at the end, and I went, ‘It’s over. It’s over. It’s not gonna come back.'”

McKinnon has usually performed Clinton on the present through the years, earlier than saying this previous season can be her final on the present.

Schneider went on to speak about late-night hosts on tv being overtly partisan, saying all of them have the identical concepts.

“That’s how you know they’re not interesting anymore,” he stated.

Schneider was employed as a author on “SNL” in 1988 and was a principal forged member from 1990 to 1994.
