In addition, a source at NBC has confirmed to The Post that, after months of rumors, veteran performer Fred Armisen will also be leaving the show. Headliner Jason Sudeikis will “probably” jump as well, the source said.
The main thesis of the article speculating on many headliners “jumping ship” and the show “about to sink” is complete bullshit. This kind of turnover is always happening and has happened countless times before. ‘SNL’ isn’t going anywhere and the Post can kindly STFU.

‘SNL’ Finale Promos: Ben Affleck & Bill Hader
We’re excited to welcome back our good friend Ben Affleck for the fifth time! He shot new promos today with Bill Hader and you could say we’re (Shakespeare) in Love with them. He’s so Good (Will Hunting). Yes… We’re really Going All The Way with this joke. Arma-get-on with it already and watch the promos!
This week’s season finale will cap Hader’s eight-year tenure on the show. The Times reports that Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis’ status on the show is also in question, and of course Seth Meyers will depart for ‘Late Night’ by at least February.
Lorne Michaels on Hader:
“In terms of intelligence and talent, he was in that same tradition,” Mr. Michaels said in a telephone interview. “He was so completely committed to the art of it and enough a student of it that there’s something strikingly original. He didn’t explode onto the air, but gradually he found his voice, and that became a huge thing.”
Mr. Hader said: “My joke was, we’ll start singing ‘Ruby Tuesday’ and just say bye to Kristen again. I can just do a little wave at goodnights, and that signifies it.”
