In a move we probably all should've seen coming since she's already signed up to star on another TV show, Amy Poehler has announced she'll be taking maternity leave from Saturday Night Live after the November election and, after that, she won't be returning. "It's gonna be really hard — Boyz II Men hard — to say goodbye to yesterday," she tells the new Men's Vogue. "SNL was dangerous, late-night, last-minute and star-studded, but like any good drug, you need to know when to put it down." We'll probably put it down immediately following the first episode featuring Seth Meyers alone behind the "Weekend Update" desk.
