Rocker Chris Cornell has died at age 52

After nine season of hilarity, "Saturday Night Live" will bid farewell to longtime cast member Bobby Moynihan.

That would make Saturday night's season finale his final appearance as a regular cast member.

So this Saturday's May 20 show should include some kind of tribute to Moynihan, even if it's just a goodbye at the end of the show.

After SNL, Moynihan will be focusing full-time on his comedy pilot Me, Myself & I, which was officially picked up by CBS. John Larroquette co-stars as the elder Alex. Moynihan was at the CBS' upfront presentation today, introducing the show and his co-stars onstage where he noted that he was in a hurry to go to his "other show".

And: "Moynihan, like so many "SNL" veterans, developed his own stable of recurring characters, including Drunk Uncle and secondhand reporter Anthony Crispino". Only Kenan Thompson, who has been with the show 14 seasons, has been there longer. Some of his most memorable impressions include Snooki, Guy Fieri, and Chris Christie.

Kapital Entertainment in association with Warner Bros Television is the studio bringing Moynihan's new project to the small screen. Dana Honor executive produces with Kopelman and Kaplan.

Moynihan is also set to voice the title character in the Syfy series "Happy!" with Christopher Meloni and Patrick Fischler.
