Brooks Wheelan Let Go from SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE

After just one season with NBC's SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, newcomer Brooks Wheelan has been laid off from the long-running sketch show.

Wheelan announced the news via Twitter today, saying: "Had a blast and loved every second of it. I'm totally honored to be able to make this next joke... FIRED FROM NEW YORK IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!"

The comedian was among seven new players this season, including Beck Bennett, John Milhiser, Kyle Mooney, Mike O'Brien, Noël Wells and, later in the year, Sasheer Zamata.

No word yet on whether the rest of SNL's fresh talent will stay aboard the program; BWW will keep you updated as we know more!

About SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE: Since its inception in 1975, "SNL" has launched the careers of many of the brightest comedy performers of their generation. At the close of the century, "Saturday Night Live" placed seventh on Entertainment Weekly's list of the Top 100 Entertainers of the past fifty years. The program has won 40 Emmy Awards, the most for any show in television history. SNL also holds the title for the most nominated television show in Emmy history with 171 nominations. "SNL" has been honored twice, in 1990 and 2009, with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award and cited as "truly a national institution." "Saturday Night Live" was inducted into the Broadcasting Hall of Fame by the National Association of Broadcasters, and the show continues to garner the highest ratings of any late-night television program, entertaining millions each week.

"Saturday Night Live," which premiered Oct. 11, 1975, is broadcast live from NBC's famed Studio 8H in New York City's Rockefeller Center. The program is a production of Broadway Video in association with SNL Studios. Lorne Michaels is the executive producer.
