Well, looks like I was wrong. Forte, Finesse, and Seth are all staying. But guess what?
Yey! SNL is now sans Sanz! What should we do to celebrate? How about in honor of Horatio getting kicked to the curb we laugh at our own jokes all day tomorrow?! I'm fat, unfunny, and unprofessional, and break character to laugh at my own shit, ha, ha, ha! The only downside to this is that you just know he's gonna be on Mind of Mencia next season. Damn you, fat man, damn you!
One of the other guys fired is Chris Parnell...for the second time! What do they have against that guy? He has never been the problem with this show, never. And he was the original white rapper, not Samberg. Come on, how can anyone forget his love rap to Kirsten Dunst? He's just a solid, character guy for the show, so it seems weird that he's been fired twice, while Horatio has only been fired once.
And much to reader Jenny's chagrin, they are also saying bye-bye to Kenan (who was my alternate). I've actually held a grudge against him ever since he starred in Brian Robbins' epic "Goodburger". Although I have to give him some credit because he played a major role in a joke I once tried (and failed) to get on "The Soup". It went: "Kangaroo Jack star Anthony Anderson has been arrested and charged with aggravated rape. Upon hearing the news, Kenan Thompson began marketing himself as the fat black funnyman who doesn't rape people."
And it looks like the fourth guy to get the boot will be Darrell Hammond. This is similar to Parnell, in that the guy is harmless. He's in one sketch an episode, doing an imitation of Chris Matthews or Donald Trump. He didn't bring the show down, and actually probably held it up for awhile. Honestly, I can go either way on this one. But new blood is usually a good thing for the show.
Overrall, I'm just glad they got rid of Horatio. Although I wish Finesse had been giving his walking his papers, just so he could hurry up with his career of never working in comedy again. Seriously, this dude's future is gonna make Tim Meadows look like Eddie Murphy. He must have an iron clad contract that they couldn't get out of or something.
Remember, laugh at yourselves all day tomorrow in honor of Horatio!
