Studio 8H is losing cast members left and right!
We reported yesterday how SNL cast member Brooks Wheelan had been given the boot, but now the show has fired two other freshman featured players, Noël Wells, and John Milhiser.
In addition, the show is losing veteran Nasim Pedrad whose going to be on Fox's Mulaney!
We wonder if anyone else will be saying goodbye to 30 Rockefeller Plaza, or if these are the last departures!
Noël, John, and Nasim…best of luck!

Brooks Wheelan, we hardly knew ye!
SNL may start with a cold open, but it just gave the cold goodbye to Brooks after only his first season!
Brooks broke the news to his Twitter followers in a pretty HIGHlarious way to show that he wasn't too badly broken up about it:
In addition to this tweet, a source close to the show confirmed that Brooks had been let go!
Brooks is the first to go, but are there more castmembers to follow? Time will tell who makes the cut for next season!

This is amazing!!!
SNL star Kenan Thompson must be flying pretty high these days because his wife Christina Evangeline recently gave birth to the couple's first daughter!
And they gave her one beautiful name!!!
Tiny Georgia Marie Thompson came into the world in New York City this past Friday at 10:30 a.m. and weighed about 6 pounds! That's so small!
Apparently Kenan hasn't slept at all since his daughter was born even though he's quite exhausted — which we totally get!
It's so hard to take your eyes off a baby - especially your own - even for just one second!
Congratulations to Kenan and his wife Christina on the ah-mazing new addition into their lives!

Live from your tummy, it's Ben & Jerry's!
In a way you've never tasted before!
The ice cream power players are introducing TWO new flavors to their tasty line-up, and both were inspired by Saturday Night Live sketches!
The first is called
Can you believe it's going to be Saturday Night Live's 40th seasonal birthday very VERY soon?!
And with such a monumental anniversary, the show's creator, Lorne Michaels says big changes are coming!
In a new interview, the late night Canadian genius explained that SNL has lost many major players in recent years, and are still rebuilding:
Tracy Morgan is responsive and recovering following a fatal six-car accident that killed his friend comedian James McNair.
But the SNL and 30 Rock star is still listed as being in critical condition. Friends and family are still hoping that he makes it out of this tragic event OK.
Mr. Morgan’s old pal Andy Samberg spoke about the accident, saying:
No! Why? But why?!
In a recent interview on Norm MacDonald's podcast, Adam Sandler made us all sad when he admitted that he's most likely not going to host Saturday Night Live in the future…or ever for that matter:
"Why should I? I don't know how good it would be. I'm slow now. There are guys who love doing it, who are great at doing it. I just don't know how good I'd be doing it. I did what I could do on that show."
Oh ye of little faith!
We think that Adam would be a great host! He's an SNL legend as far as we're concerned!
Ch-ch-check out the entire interview with Norm…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
