Season 29 had to overcome the departures of fan favorites Will Ferrell, Ana Gasteyer, Molly Shannon, Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan, who all left the show the past two seasons. Two new cast members were added to the season were Finesse Mitchell and former Nickelodeon All That and Kenan & Kel star Kenan Thompson. The season premiere was on October 4, 2003 and was hosted by Jack Black. The season finale, which was hosted by the Olsen Twins on May 15, 2004, was the final episode for Jimmy Fallon, who had been with the cast since 1998.
The set is changed with the doors with lines on them. It had the clock on the top of the audience. The clock says Grand Central Terminal. The opening montage is changed. It featured Subways, Restaurants, Parties, and Everything else that was in New York.
