Bobby Moynihan Confirms ‘SNL’ Exit for New CBS Sitcom
Drunk Uncle has officially sobered up, at least for the time being. CBS’ official pickup of SNL star Bobby Moynihan’s new generational sitcom Me, Myself & I will indeed cement his exit from the NBC sketch comedy series after Season 42’s finale this week.
Per Deadline, Moynihan formally chose not to renew his SNL contract any further than the nine years already served, two of which were an extension of the typical seven-year deal. Even so, CBS officially placed an order for the Boyhood-type Me, Myself & I, the first trailer of which was also released at Wednesday’s Upfront presentation:
So reads the synopsis:
The life of a genius inventor is examined in his childhood, today and in the future. Bobby Moynihan, John Laroquette and Jack Dylan Grazer tell the story of Alex Riley. This Fall on CBS.
Presumably, this weekend’s Season 42 finale with host Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson will address Moynihan’s exit (or at least offer one last whiskey tumbler for Drunk Uncle), so check out the promo below, and stay tuned.
