Is Pete Davidson really exiting SNL?
The reason has not been confirmed and NBC has not said anything yet on the news. But Davidson has left a lasting impression ever since he joined the show in 2014. At first, he would do a routine of Weekly Updates, where he would make fun of himself. He then would bring in sketches of his own. One of the most popular sketches by him has to be the Chad one.
