'SNL': Who will get canned?

155554__amy_lTina 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!]

    Darrell Hammond, Horatio, Chris Parnell are definitely going. I wouldn’t mind Seth Meyers going, too-he’s never been that great a performer. Maybe Finesse-he’s so awkward on camera.

  • Lorenzo

    My guess is that Keenan, Finese, Chris, and the other dud that is not Andy Samberg (you know who I’m talking about). To tell truth, I don’t feel bad about this. SNL sucked last year. MadTV actually did better in quality (not in the ratings though) and MadTV was funnier, to me at least.
    Hopefully, these pink slips will help the show get better because, Lord knows, we don’t need someone like Dane Cook hosting again. Ever.

    I hope Horatio goes! I have a feeling Darrell will go because he’s been there the longest…and prob has had many raises. Seth won’t go…they need the cute guy…Finesse will be going. I hope Chris stays! I love Chris Parnell…Keanan will stay, they can’t an all white cast and Kristin Whiig (sp?) is poised to become the next Amy Pohler…she was promoted to full time mid season as was Amy…plus they need women!

  • Tina (not Fey)

    Please…Let Horatio get the ax! Keep Chris Parnell & Darryl Hammond (and give them more AIR TIME)! Will Forte is useless (“The Falconer” & his George Bush impression are down right embarrassing). The person who deserves the pink slip the most is Lorne Michaels. He approves EVERYTHING that makes it to air. Lets face it, whatever golden touch he had (at one time), has been gone for the last few years. Time for a new Captain to steer the ship. Michaels is complacent, bring in an executive producer who knows what consistent humor & talent is.

    Keep Maya Rudolph!

    Horatio should have left with Jimmy Fallon. Chris Parnell, either Keenan or Finnesse and hopefully Fred Armison will be the four.

    Horatio NEEDS to go…he’s awful

  • Marci

    Here’s my pick for who should go: Jason Sudekis (he’s not at all memorable or funny), Will Forte (his George Bush impression is just painful to watch, I actually can’t watch it, I mute it when it comes on), Horatio Sans (his schtick is getting old) and Fred Armisen (I just don’t like him). I really hope that Seth Meyers and Chris Parnell stay, they’re both really strong performers, they just never really get their moment to shine.
    I agree, this past year was pretty awful. That’s why I’m glad to see Tina Fey go (I even like Tina Fey–I just think it’s time for her to move on). The writing just got stale and lazy. SNL needs a new head writer very badly.
    I think the show really started to go downhill when they lost their 2 strongest players in the same year–Ana Gasteyer and Will Ferrell.

    Hey Lorenzo, just so you know…the Dane train is pulling in again for the season opener so you may want to skip that episode then!!

  • Chris

    Chris, Amy, Maya and Andy must, must, MUST stay. Fred, Will, Kristin and Finesse all need to go. The rest I don’t much care either way. Except Horatio, who must stay so he can do CAROL!

  • Brian Aranas

    HEY! Stop picking on Horatio! He’s actually not that bad and a personal favorite of mine. The fact that no one really stands out isn;t that good a sign though…

  • Marnie

    In my opinion, Horatio Sanz, Seth Myers, Fred Armisen and Finesse Mitchell should all go. Then they should hire Kristin Key and Ty Barnett from this season of LCS.

  • Lorenzo

    Thanks Heather for the info!
    Now, all I have to do is to make myself deaf during that episode to prevent vomiting and my head exploding. Oh and the guy I was talking about was Jason Sudekis.
    MadTV Rules!!!!!

  • Rebecca

    Kenan is actually staying – he said so on Jimmy Kimmel. And from what I heard, Darrell is sticking around as well
    I’m pretty sure Horatio is gone so that only leaves three and I believe it will be Maya, Chris and Finesse. As much as I love Chris, Lorne has let him go before and with the budget cuts, I don’t think Chris has a chance of staying. I don’t care about Maya or Finesse either way so I wouldn’t mind if they left. I’m just glad Horatio is gone because I hate Carol. Pure drivel

  • matt

    I really do not want ANYONE to go. But I think Lorne Michael’s is gonna cut Finesse, jason sudeikis, bill hader, and keenan thompson or kristin wiig. I hate that he has to fire people, because this show is gonna suck a little more without Tina and Rachel. SOSNL-Save Our Saturday Night Live!!! Please don’t fire anyone.
