Seth, who is also SNL's head writer, admits that the newer cast members have some big shoes to fill but believes they have what it takes to make themselves into household names. Seth recently stated:

Fred Armisen Confirms His Final SNL Season ALREADY Happened!!!

Filed under: TV NewsSaturday Night Live

Fred Armisen plays the guitar

Even though we'd recently reported the possibility and it was pretty clear from the hilarious and heartwarming send-off song Fred Armisen Ian Rubbish played on the SNL season finale this Spring, Fred has now totes admitted he will DEF not be returning to the show. He says:

"I think it's clear. I didn't do any kind of official announcement, but I really felt like it was obvious."

After 11 seasons on a weekly program notorious for all-nighters, we’d be taking a break to catch up on sleep and our DVR catalog and online shopping.

But that’s why we’re not Fred Armisen!!!

Fred is actually leaving his weekend engagement in part to focus on his IFC sketch show, Portlandia, now in its third season and geared up for two more, saying:

Jay Pharoah Accidentally Spills The Beans On Jason Sudeikis' Rumored Departure From SNL!

wenn20356821

Say whaaaat!??

As we confirmed earlier, this past Saturday's Saturday Night Live was the end of an era for both Fred Armisen and Bill Hader. The two said their final farewells on the AH-mazing season finale.

There had been some speculation that Jason Sudeikis might leave as well, but was this all just a part of the rumor mill — until now!

Jay Pharoah, the HIGHlarious Will Smith and Obama impersonator, tweeted the following on Sunday before hastily deleting it:

Bill Hader Says His Saturday Night Live Good-Bye As Stefon! See All Of The SURPRISE Appearances HERE!

With Fred Armisen, Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader having confirmed their exits from Saturday Night Live after this season, we knew last night's finale was going to be equal parts emotional and HIGHlarious…but boy, did they give both to their viewers HARD or WHAT?!

While there were many great moments during the Ben Affleck-hosted edition of the long-running NBC sketch comedy show, we think everyone can agree that Hader's final performance as the AH-MAY-ZING fan-favorite Stefon REALLY took the cake…especially when what started out as a relatively standard Weekend Update bit (featuring our beloved Amy Poehler!!!) descended in what we can only describe as MADNESS!

Oh, and just WAIT until you see how Anderson Cooper works into it all (above)!

But before we sob ourselves to sleep and forget entirely that Ben Affleck was even there for the night of good-byes, be sure to check out his opening monologue, for which he brings his wife Jennifer Garner on-stage to discuss his 'marriage' comments during his Oscar acceptance speech…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

According to sources at the NY Post, Fred Armisen, a.k.a — Boy George in this charming clip — is saying sayonara after this weekend's finale!

In addition, the same source says there's a good chance Jason Sudeikis will quit Saturday Night Live, too!!

Christoph Waltz's SNL Promos Are Super Charming (With No Violence!)!

Filed under: TV NewsSilly!Saturday Night Live

We were very surprised to see that SNL's promos for the upcoming Christoph Waltz episode lacked the violence of Christoph's usual projects (which we blame on Quentin Tarantino's love for it)! Seriously, we feel like the only thing we've ever seen Christoph do that didn't involve a gun was when he was in Der Humpink! LOLz!

Speaking of violence, though, we totally hope SNL spoofs one of Tarantino's movies, complete with a spoof of how much blood he seems to like to use! That would be HIGHlarious!

This promo doesn't hint at it though, and we're bummed that they didn't pair Christoph with someone other than Fred Armisen, who we feel is much better in Portlandia than he is on SNL. Still, it's all harmless fun — and when Christoph freaks out about how unprepared everyone is, well, we can't help to love him even more!

And we thought that was impossible! Ha!
