Appearing on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Friday, the comedian notes that he’s been on the show through three different U.S. presidents and DeGeneres asks whether he plans to stick around “SNL” to see a fourth president.

“Oh I would love it. I’d love that,” he says. “Hopefully it will be in 2020, but we’ll see what happens. It’s the best job in the world. I can’t see myself just walking away from that.”
