But viewers were quick to note that Chase didn’t look too good as he sounded off and was even sweating profusely during the interview.
“I left after the first year because I thought this isn’t going anywhere… I liked [hosting]. I liked it. But I missed it more for not being a part of the cast because I left after one year, I had reasons to leave… But I liked it a lot, and I still like it. I love Lorne [Michaels]. We’re like brothers now.” Chase told Daly in the interview as posted by Inquistr.com
