Is NCB planning to cut costs for the show?

Since its conception of the show in the year of 1975, Lorne Micheals had been the one who had always played the role of the show runner, he had been the producer of the show for about the entire existence of the show except for a brief 5 year break that occurred somewhere in the 80s, Thompson in his conversation added that the number 50 seems very appropriate to stop a show that will be leaving behind such a grand legacy, and if Micheals is to leave, it would be better to stop the show and let someone else take over, and this provides the chance for NBC to cut some costs.
