I guess the question we all want to ask is: When is Amy Poehler gonna make a cameo on Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? I mean, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch and, of course, Tina Fey have already made their appearences on the hilarious show. It’s time for some SNL nostalgic time

Miscellaneous Items of Note

This season resulted in SNL’s highest ratings in over 20 years, their best since Season 20 which aired from the fall of 1994 to the spring of 1995. Three hosts (Scarlett Johansson, Melissa McCarthy and Dwayne Johnson) entered the Five Timers Club, the most of any prior season. Kenan Thompson became the longest serving cast member of the show, surpassing Darrell Hammond’s record. For the first time in the show’s history, they went live coast to coast for the final four episodes of the season. Prior to the season’s start, two Weekend Update specials were aired from the Republican and Democratic National Conventions to more closely cover the presidential election. It was also announced in March that the show will be bringing back Weekend Update Thursday this August for four episodes which will provide an early start to Season 43.
