saturday night live announcer don pardo dead 96

Saturday Night Live has lost its voice.

Announcer Don Pardo, whose baritone could be heard presenting the ever-changing cast week after week, passed away on Monday at his home in Tucson at the age of 96.

Don had also served as the announcer on The Price Is Right and Jeopardy!, but he was best known for SNL, where he announced 39 out of 40 seasons.

It's difficult to even imagine Saturday nights without that voice. So sad.

Here are just a few of the remembrances by SNL cast members, guests, and friends who took to Twitter to mourn his passing:

Live from the court room…it's Chris Kattan's sentence!

We reported earlier how Chris had been arrested for a DUI after he crashed into a parked Department of Transportation vehicle!

Now, Chris will not only have to spend the next 3 years being on probation, attend drug and alcohol classes, he'll have to cough up a whopping $500 fine!

That's right, the Saturday Night Live alum will have to go through a 3-month alcohol program, and complete classes in 104 Narcotics Anonymous.

On top of that, he'll have to participate in a Hospital and Morgue Program, which sounds like it might be a real eye opening experience for him.

From now on, he's not allowed to drive with any drugs in his system! That is, unless he happens to have a valid prescription!

According to sources in law enforcement, Chris had been on Ambien the time of his arrest.

In addition to this tweet, a source close to the show confirmed that Brooks had been let go!

Brooks is the first to go, but are there more castmembers to follow? Time will tell who makes the cut for next season!

kenan thompsons wife gave birth to a baby girl find out what her name is here

Aww!

This is amazing!!!

SNL star Kenan Thompson must be flying pretty high these days because his wife Christina Evangeline recently gave birth to the couple's first daughter!

And they gave her one beautiful name!!!

Tiny Georgia Marie Thompson came into the world in New York City this past Friday at 10:30 a.m. and weighed about 6 pounds! That's so small!

Apparently Kenan hasn't slept at all since his daughter was born even though he's quite exhausted — which we totally get!

It's so hard to take your eyes off a baby - especially your own - even for just one second!

Congratulations to Kenan and his wife Christina on the ah-mazing new addition into their lives!
