Check out what's clicking today in entertainment. "I miss Kenan [Thompson] but I don't miss [it]. At all", the 53-year-old comedian and actress told Entertainment Tonight.

'That job was hard, man. "That job was like two jobs and very restrictive too", she added.

Leslie Jones isn't pining over "Saturday Night Live". "I wasn't very free there".

Jones initially started as a writer for "SNL" and made a controversial on-screen debut in May 2014, joking that she wouldn't be single in the times of slavery. "But because of stand-up, I was able to make it... through Leslie Jones" eyes".

By 2016, Jones was promoted to a repertory player.

Warren and her friend and neighbor, Lois Arbogast, team up in the inaugural episode. "I can not thank NBC, the producers, writers, and incredible crew enough for making SNL my second home these last five years", Jones wrote on Instagram after making her big move.

Now, after leaving Saturday Night Live, Jones is still critical of the long-running comedy series. "Thank you for being my mentor and confidant and for always having my back".

Jones will also appear alongside her fellow SNL alum Eddie Murphy in the upcoming sequel Coming 2 America. She announced her departure in August 2019, opting to focus on other opportunities; she has since fronted a Netflix comedy special and now hosts ABC's reboot of Supermarket Sweep, premiering Sunday. The original version became a global sensation in the 1960s.

In an interview with ET, the comedian opened up about her decision to exit the venerated sketch show more than one year after her departure.

Julia Warren, 35, now a mother of four living in Poway, Calif., enjoyed watching the game show whenever she was home sick from school as a kid.
