We actually had a semi-connection to the White House. The connection said Barack Obama might do it if he gets to say something with a point of view. The joke was going to be he was from C-SPAN, and he was going to say this thing about how C-SPAN is going to change news because it’ll be stripped down.

I think everyone sees what’s going on, which is Lorne Michaels has a history of relating to white men, and it is a field where there are a disproportionate amount of whacky white guys.

I’m just figuring out some way to do a version of what we’ve been doing that makes me happy and can have a chance to make a little bit of money. I’m not a sentimental person at all with stuff. I’m always looking forward, and I’m really looking forward now, seeing what 2014 is gonna be. I’ve always thought of it — at the risk of sounding jerky — it’s like, we are the show. It’s not the microphones or not that studio; that wasn’t the show. Wherever we are, that’s where the show is. That’s what I want to focus on: getting the next version of the show going, in whatever form it happens.
