Bobby Moynihan, one of the most beloved comedians on "Saturday Night Live", revealed that he's officially leaving the show after 9 seasons on May 17.
This year it was apparent that Moynihan was in fewer sketches than prior seasons and his off-show work has been ramping up.
The veteran cast member's departure from the series comes as his new comedy pilot, Me, Myself & I, has been picked up to series by CBS, and will premiere on the network's fall schedule. When Moynihan started his tenure on SNL, he signed on with a standard 7-year contract and chose to extend it two years beyond.
Moynihan stars in Me, Myself and Iwhich examines one man's life over a 50-year span. John Larroquette co-stars as the elder Alex. The actor pitched the show to advertisers during CBS' Upfronts presentation in NY on Wednesday before hurrying off for a run-through rehearsal at his "other show". Bobby is famous for his many recurring characters, including Drunk Uncle, secondhand reporter Anthony Crispino, Chris Christie, Guy Fieri, and Snooki. Saturday's finale will be hosted by Dwayne "The Rock Johnson" and musical guest Katy Perry which will mark the end of season 42.
Oh no! Bobby Moynihan, 40, has been a central member of the Saturday Night Live cast for a whopping 9 seasons.
