Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch aren’t the only ones leaving SNL, but they may be the only ones leaving voluntarily. Budget constraints mean that not only will Lorne Michaels’ long-running show not be adding any new cast members this season, it’ll be losing four. Who will stay and who will go hasn’t been made public, but we’re guessing that Andy Samberg, of ”Lazy Sunday” fame, and Weekend Update co-anchor Amy Poehler (pictured), are safe.
Michaels says the announcement will come around Labor Day. In the meantime, who do you think will get canned? Who do you want — or not want — to see canned?
[This just in: According to the folks at Channel Island, Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz and Kenan Thompson are all getting auf'd for SNL'snew season, while the future remains uncertain for Darrell Hammond. Italso looks like Jason Sudeikis is bumping Amy Poehler from the WeekendUpdate desk. Thanks to TV Tattle for the link!]
