Sad to see you go (23 of 30)

According to Entertainment Weekly: "Maya Rudolph is not returning to Saturday Night Live for an eighth season. NBC was told of Rudolph's departure on Sept. 24, just five days before the show’s season premiere. While no official reason was given for her exit, a spokesperson for NBC says, ''We wish Maya nothing but the best.'' (This means SNL is down to two funny women: Amy Poehler and Kristen Wiig. No word yet on whether any new cast members will be added later in the season, but the rest of the '06-'07 cast will be returning.)

During her seven seasons on the show, Rudolph built a wide repertoire of characters, from Wake Up Wakefield's awkwardly hormonal teen host Megan to Bronx Beat's irritable housewife Jodi. Of course, we'll miss her gift for sublime celebrity impersonations the most. So Beyonce, Whitney, Oprah, Donatella — sleep easy tonight. As for the rest of us, we'll always have reruns."
