i do want to ask though, why Paul Brittain and Abby Elliott left the show? Were they let go? It was such a huge lost! I know Paul was not as funny as Taran or Jay and even though Abby made good impersonations she never really cracked people up, but still they were worth watching way more than Seth, Kenan,or Armisen even Jason still on the show. Paul would be so perfect taking Seth's role in Weekend Update. He's already way too much being on the show. What now like his 12th season? And Kenan is just plain boring nowadays. he used to be good but now he's basically a waste.
Paul quit, and NBC opted not to renew Abby's contract.
