Some wildlife experts say this doesn ’ t show animals as they really are in the wild, and I agree. But that didn’ t stop the pictures being beautiful. One artist, for example, had filmed videos of animals through coloured glass and another had added music – they worked really well.

Jones reflected on her decisions to leave the show in a recent interview with Kevin Frazier from Entertainment Tonight, and the actress revealed that she doesn't have any regrets about leaving NBC's Studio 8H.

"I don't miss it. At all," Jones told Frazier. "That job was hard, man. That job was like two jobs, and very restrictive too. I wasn't very free there."

Speaking with Bill Keveny of USA Today, Jones admitted that she learned a lot from the show, and while she misses her former castmate Kenan Thompson, she's excited for fans to "really see Leslie."

"I know that would be terrible for me to just say it like that," Jones told Keveny. "Of course, I learned a lot at 'SNL.' I love what I learned there, but I (was) 47. That's a hard job. It's very restrictive. Now I'm free, and y'all can really see Leslie. You can see what Leslie can do. What I learned there is great, but I don't miss the hundred hours a week."

Laurie Metcalf et al. posing for a picture: Laurie, known to legions of fans for her Emmy-winning work on Roseanne, was a featured player for one season finale episode in 1981, where she appeared on Weekend Update in a pre-taped segment about taking a bullet for the president. That season was the first one without Lorne Michaels and was generally regarded as a failure. After that disastrous season and then a writers' strike, the whole show was retooled and most of the cast wasn't asked back. 

Jones is now hosting ABC's reboot of the game show "Supermarket Sweep," and she told ET that she has "full creative control" of the show.

"It's just, you know, a comedian's dream come true," Jones said of hosting the game show, which premieres on Sunday.

In August 2019, Jones confirmed she was saying goodbye to "Saturday Night Live" in an Instagram post thanking her castmates and fans — and joked that she is "#NotDeadJustGraduating."

Yes, it’s true I am leaving Saturday Night Live. I cannot thank NBC, the producers, writers, and amazing crew enough for making SNL my second home these last five years. Lorne Michaels, you’ve changed my life in so many ways! Thank you for being my mentor and confidant and for always having my back. You not only have my loyalty but you have my heart!! You have shown me skills I never imagined I had. I leave a better performer because of you. To the incredible cast members: I will miss working, creating and laughing with you. I will miss holding it down with Kenan everyday, I will miss Cecily’s impression of me making me laugh at myself often, I will miss Kate’s loving hugs and talks when I needed. And of course Colin, you porcelain-skinned Ken doll. I will miss all my cast mates!! Especially being at the table reads with them!! Everyone needs to know Leslie Jones couldn’t have done any of the things I did without these people. One last thing – to the fans – you are the BEST!! Thank you for all the love and support through my SNL years and I know you will be as excited as I am when you see some of the amazing projects and adventures that I have coming up very soon! Love you all!! #iamnotdeadjustgraduating - Leslie

"Everyone needs to know Leslie Jones couldn't have done any of the things I did without these people," Jones wrote in August 2019 of her "Saturday Night Live" castmates.

The comedian joined the series as a writer, and in 2014, became a featured player and cast member. She went on to earn an Emmy nomination for her role on the show. Jones was known for starring in the show's installments of "Weekend Update" and the sketch "Love and Leslie," where she gave comedic updates about her romantic life.

She once portrayed Meghan Markle's third cousin in a sketch about etiquette lessons and also portrayed Whoopi Goldberg in a parody of the "The View," as well as former first lady Michelle Obama.

Nearly one year after Jones' departure from the show, "Saturday Night Live" is filming its 46th season in New York City with a live studio audience after completing its 45th season remotely as a precaution to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
