Chris Brown will have a difficult time salvaging his music career after allegedly attacking girlfriend Rihanna in L.A. two weeks ago, one venue hasn't closed its doors to him.

Saturday Night Live might still consider having the 19-year-old singer perform in the future, according to series regular Kenan Thompson. "It's not up to me, but I'm sure we would if he had another hit single," Thompson tells Usmagazine.com. "We don't care about scandal. We just care about what brings us ratings!"

Thompson did not know if SNL -- which most recently had the Jonas Brothers perform on their Valentine's Day episode to boost viewership -- invited Brown or Rihanna back to the show. "If we had them both on the show, that would be crazy," Thompson told Us at the GBK Luxury Lounge in L.A. on Friday. Thompson, a regular on the sketch show, says that this particular scandal is "an unfortunate situation. "I don't know the whole story, but I know how women can get when you get a text message from another female, so I'm just saying, you have to learn that you can't put your hands on a female." Although the comedian says Brown was cool when they first met, he doesn't know him well. "He's a big dude," Thompson tells Us. "He's not a little dude."
