They did a Grease parody when Fallon left. Generally, if it's know it's definately someone's last night - they'll at least get a nod during goodnights.

I know that Dennis Miller got a special cold open with Lorne on his last show. (Dennis was never able to say "Live From New York...").

Sometimes they'll at least give a recurring character some sort of "finale".

To be fair, the article quotes a "source" at NBC, so it's probably mostly speculation. For Jason, it probably was a mixture of emotions.

I'm not a big Jagger fan so I was really expecting a train wreck. Not only wasn't it, it was actually quite good. I was pleasantly surprised.

He did a cursory little dance (without any "bits" in it) with Kristen, but that was it.

When everyone came downstage for the group sing of Ruby Tuesday, he hung back and then filtered himself into the back of the crowd as quickly as possible.

My initial reaction was that he was just emotionally overcome as it was his last show too. But in hindsight, I can also buy that he was bitter.
I don't get that at all. He was clearly choked up, you could see several times he was sniffling or trying to clear his throat.

Yeah, that's exactly where I was at. He was really good!

While I'm not a huge Jagger or Stones fan, I appreciate that Mick Jagger's showmanship, stage presence, and sense of what entertains an audience is very good.

He's hosted before (I think, or at least, as musical guest, he has participated heavily in sketches before), and he has always been very good in SNL sketches.

I've seen him do sketch comedy bits on other shows that were good as well.

I was expecting him to be entertaining and funny, and I wasn't disappointed.

Can't Sudeikis just pull a Darrell Hammond and leave the show, but still appear basically every week as Romney if Romney wins, etc? Darrell Hammond pretty much did that for a while.

P.S LONG before this episode, I heard Sudeikis is a total jerk in real life and difficult to work with.

Weird. I just decided to dig into google to see if I could get any more info about Jason's reaction--maybe a statement from him. The seventh search result for the terms "Sudeikis Wiig graduation" was this thread!

IIRC, Sudeikis is a personal friend of someone on this forum. I would take their word over rumor.


ETA: He's AJRitz's brother's friend.

Loved the episode, loved Wiig, will miss her on the show.

I was never much of a Gilly fan, but I loved most of the rest of her characters. She is just funny and fearless.

I saw sudeikis and his brother do improv. It was ridiculously funny. Better than our visit to Second City.

I didn't see sour puss or bitter... I saw a sad guy who was saying goodbye to Wiig (and possibly the show.) If I was in front of TV cameras I'd be going to the back in this situation as well.

Does anyone know who the announcer that says " The Californians " is? It's been bugging me since the show and I'm usually good at placing voices. I know it's familiar.
