I Don't Want To Say "I Told You So", But...

Josh reported here that some shake ups were going to be happening to the cast of SNL.

I just found this article claiming to know who's getting the axe and what moves are being made.

On the chopping block are Chris Parnell, Horatio Sanz, and Kenan Thompson.

I'm glad that Lorne Michaels reads my blog and is finally listening to the voice of reason. Let's all recall a little post from the past where I called out Sanz and Thompson as being the weak links in the comedy chain that is SNL. I hate to say I told you so...

Actually, no I don't. I love it! Good riddance!

Alas, my heart does hurt a little for the loss of Chris Parnell. Lazy Sunday, Tom Brokaw, and Lez-lie are among my faves. Though I could have done without Merv the Perv. You will be missed.

And with the worst news of the day, the same article is reporting that Amy Poehler will be stepping down as co-anchor of weekend update, and will be replaced by Jason Sudeikis. Bad move Lorne. Maybe if you teamed them up. But replacing Amy could tank the whole bit. I'll let you know, via this blog, what I think as soon as I see the end product. Amy, if you need a shoulder, you know where to find me...

Now, to celebrate Sanz and Thompson's departure. Where are those party hats...

After the announcement of Tina Fey's departure, you knew the world (and the Weekend Update) were going downhill fast...
