I didn't see the Jay Pharaoh sketch on the west coast feed. I had to go to Hulu to see it, and after watching it I understand why it was pulled. It was nearly 5 minutes long, and it stopped being funny after the third iteration. I also didn't hear the impression, it came off as more Denzel than Steven A. Smith.

We also didn't get the Hulk sketch from two weeks ago. Likewise, I had to go to hulu to see that one as well.

It was just one of many things that didnt get past dress rehearsal every week... sometimes for time... sometimes because it didnt work...

Usually if it was put online it was cut from the live show for time.

TV Notes
Andy Samberg Officially Leaving 'Saturday Night Live'
By Tim Kenneally, TheWrap.com - Jun. 1, 2012

Andy Samberg is following Kristen Wiig out the door at "Saturday Night Live."

The comedian said he won't be returning to the late-night institution next season in an interview with the New York Times on Friday, confirming suspicions that his run on the show was coming to an end.

It's an incredibly emotional and strange moment in my life, Samberg told the Times. Obviously it's not a huge shock, but I did officially decide not to come back.

Samberg joined the show in the fall of 2005 and was largely known for his musical skits, such as "Lazy Sunday" and "Dick in a Box."

On last month's season finale of "Saturday Night Live," Samberg fueled speculation that he was on his way out with "Lazy Sunday 2," which had lyrics that included the line, "On these New York streets I hone my fake rap penmanship / That's how it began, and that's how I'm-a finish it.

Wiig departed the show during the season finale. Though no official announcement was made, her departure was made clear with a skit during which host Mick Jagger, as a school principal, announced that Wiig was "graduating" this year, and a musical number during which many of her former castmates danced with her.

NBC has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.

That's expected but still a shame. He, Jorma, and Akiva created some of the best moments of SNL over the past 6 years. Certainly kept SNL relevant and viral.

As long as Bill Hader stays, there is still hope. I don't really care for any of the new people. Except for the one they fired mid-season. "I Want Sweeets!"

i wonder if digital shorts will end with Samberg leaving. That would be too bad. I assume Akiva and Jorma will be leaving as well?

I believe both already had left.

I highly doubt it. They've done stuff like this since the beginning (Mr. Bill, Ambiguously Gay Duo (and other Smigel shorts), etc., etc.) -- but of course they started as analog short films.
