Bobby Moynihan Exiting 'Saturday Night Live' After 9 Seasons


The longtime cast member is departing the series after nine seasons on the NBC sketch show, a source close to the show confirmed to CNN.

Now the second-longest tenured SNL cast member after Kenan Thompson with nine seasons under his belt, Moynihan has a pressing though not surprising reason to leave: CBS has officially picked up his sitcom pilot Me, Myself and I.

Me, Myself & I is a single-camera comedy that follows a man's life over fifty years, with Moynihan playing him at age forty.

One of Moynihan's most popular recurring characters on SNL is the "Drunk Uncle".

The death of the Palestinian led to clashes between dozens of local youth and Israeli soldiers, who also closed Huwwara road. An Israeli police officer and soldier also sustained injuries as protesters hurled stones at security forces.

The comedian is now the second longest-serving performer on the NBC sketch comedy series behind Kenan Thompson, who has been with the show for 14 seasons.

Saturday's new episode of the series, which will be the Season 42 finale, will be Moynihan's final show - the actor won't be coming back next season. The only person on the current cast that's been on the sketch show longer is Kenan Thompson!

Beyond characters like the blubbering "Drunk Uncle", Moynihan regularly parodied Chris Christie during the 2016 presidential campaign until a certain someone became the official Republican nominee.
