Now the second-longest tenured SNL cast member after Kenan Thompson with nine seasons under his belt, Moynihan has a pressing though not surprising reason to leave: CBS has officially picked up his sitcom pilot Me, Myself and I. It's not a huge surprise to anyone who follows the series closely.

Though he is leaving the show, Moynihan will leave behind an archive of unforgettable characters and sketches. CBS recently picked up the pilot for a new sitcom titled "Me, Myself & I", which will star Moynihan and John Laroquette.

The comedian is now the second longest-serving performer on the NBC sketch comedy series behind Kenan Thompson, who has been with the show for 14 seasons. It's been said before on the site, but in some ways one of the strengths of Bobby as a performer was that he could make any moment something special. Other long termers include Seth Meyers (13 seasons), Al Franken (12), Fred Armisen (11), Tim Meadows (10), and Kevin Nealon and Jason Sudeikis (9 each). He also impersonated Chris Christie, Guy Fieri, and Snooki. Bobby has had such a tremendous run, he even stands out when playing background players in sketches. This season was planned to be his final hurrah with the show, freeing him up to delve into the network comedy world. He will be missed!
