Abby Elliott Fired From SNL??

Abby Elliott leaving snl

Saturday Night Live is DONE with Abby Elliott!

After four years on the show, Abby has officially "decided" to leave.

Seeing as the actress isn't leaving for another TV gig or movie, we have a hunch leaving wasn't 100% her choice.

The truth, is Abby didn't provide the show with awesome original characters, like Andy Samberg and reining queen of our hearts Kristen Wiig — who announced their departure from the cast earlier this summer. Also, the Abbster had a lazy habit of not memorizing her lines and reading cue cards on air. Srsly, did she think we wouldn't notice that?

That said, we must mention that Mz Elliot did do a faaaablous job impersonating the likes of Khloe Kardashian, Angelia Jolie, Christina Aguilera, Zooey Deschanel, Anne Hathaway aaand Jennifer Lawrence.

We're not gonna beat around the bush, Abby was NO Kristin. Still, finding someone who can do Angie half as well Elliot is gonna be a chore.

Lorne Michaels better start casting new comics soon!

At this rateFred Armisen will be the only remaining cast member by the end of the summer!

    Unfortunately everyone reads cue cards on that show. I can't believe Lorne puts up with that. It's basically unwatchable because of that.

    Obvisouly none of you know how SNL works. The show is written over the week before the show airs. The sketches are slimmed down to the funniest and most likely to appease the audience. After that they are written and rewritten to try to get them as polished as possible. Hours before the live show airs an audience is brought in for a finale dress rehearsal. The writers and actors can the gauge from that audience where they need to make changes or where they need to cut sketches. When it comes to the live show, the script maybe completely different from what was just proformed a few hours before. It is impossible to memorize a constantly changing script. As much as I was not a fan of Abbey it was not her fault she was reading off cards, THAT IS HOW THE SHOW WORKS!!!!!

    I'm actually shocked by this. SNL hasn't been a must watched show for me in awhile, but usually the skits I watch and love have had her in it. Out of the new girls that have been cast, I would not think she would be the one to go. Although SNL does have a history of firing great talent.

    I think it's more a result of not sleeping with Armisen anymore. I don't know WHO Armisen is blowing….cough, cough, Lorne….but he is the worst parasite on that show. Not funny, terrible impersonator, clearly arrogant and in love with himself, and godawful ugly. He'll never leave and I guess he'll do anything to stay because, well, he's clearly not qualified for anything else. I think it's a sexual harassment suit for Abby. And why hasn't her dad, Chris, beat the piss out of Freddy?

    Hey maybe SNL can get some a more diverse cast. Some comedy wouldn't hurt either. Abby wasn't bad but only a few people on the cast are even funny.

    I think he's funny, but why would somebody as sexy as Abby even consider sleeping with that troll? Methinks bad timing…
