Bobby Moynihan leaving 'Saturday Night Live' for CBS sitcom

Bobby Moynihan exiting'SNL

Now the second-longest tenured SNL cast member after Kenan Thompson with nine seasons under his belt, Moynihan has a pressing though not surprising reason to leave: CBS has officially picked up his sitcom pilot Me, Myself and I.

Moynihan is the second-longest tenured member of the "SNL" cast behind Keenan Thompson. SNL's season finale on May 20 will officially be his last show as a member of the cast.

In the end, Bobby Moynihan of "Saturday Night Live" could think only of "Me, Myself & I".

While fans will be sad to see him go, Moynihan won't be gone from TV screens for long; the reason he's leaving "SNL" is because his sitcom pilot, "Me, Myself & I" was picked up to series by CBS, which announced the show as part of its fall lineup during the network's upfront presentation on Wednesday. Deadline reports that Moynihan had a typical seven-year contract with SNL and signed a two-year extension.

Moynihan's exit should not come as a shock to those who followed the news coming out of broadcast Upfronts. It focuses on three distinct periods in Alex Riley's life - as a 14-year-old in 1991, a 40-year-old in present day (Moynihan) and a 65-year-old (John Larroquette) in 2042.

Beyond characters like the blubbering "Drunk Uncle", Moynihan regularly parodied Chris Christie during the 2016 presidential campaign until a certain someone became the official Republican nominee. It's going to be produced by Kapital Entertainment and Warner Bros Television, so definitely keep an eye out! Dana Honor executive produces with Kopelman and Kaplan.
