SNL Firings, Finally

After promising that the cast of Saturday Night Live would face cuts back in July, Lorne Michaels finally let Horatio Sanz, Chris Parnell, and Finesse Mitchell go, according to Variety. Sanz and Parnell’s names were cast about in the rumor mill since Michaels mentioned that, due to budgetary concerns, the cast would eventually need further cuts, beyond Tina Fey and Rachel Datch’s departure for 30 Rock. Keenan Thompson was also named in earlier speculation, but he’s still in the SNL fold for now. By the way, Sanz claims on his myspace blog that it was his decision to leave the show. Way to leave your people swaying in the wind for two months, NBC. Via TV Tattle and TV Squad.
