Pour One Out for Drunk Uncle Because Bobby Moynihan Quit SNL

Pour One Out for Drunk Uncle Because Bobby Moynihan Quit SNL

Variety reports that Bobby Moynihan has departed Saturday Night Live. The series order was announced Wednesday at the network's annual upfront presentation to advertisers.

Moynihan wraps up his nine-season SNL run this Saturday, and the news made us all misty-eyed and sentimental about his Drunk Uncle character. Moynihan allegedly completed his 7-year contract and was offered another 2-year stint, which explains his availability to try out for a new pilot. According to Deadline, Moynihan chose to leave after his sitcom Me, Myself, And I was picked up by CBS for a fall spot. "My life's dream was to be on that show and I don't ever want to leave, but the [CBS] show did get picked up so we'll see", he said yesterday. The single-camera comedy tracks one man's life during three periods - as a 14-year-old in 1991 (Jack Dylan Grazer), a 40-year-old in current day (Moynihan), and a 65-year-old in 2042 (John Larroquette).

Moynihan's final episode of Saturday Night Live will be this weekend's season 24 finale, hosted by Dwayne Johnson with musical guest Katy Perry. He also developed a few distinctive characters, such as Drunk Uncle on "Weekend Update", and a number of his impressions - of Snooki, Chris Christie, Kim Jong-un, Guy Fieri - were memorable.
